Over the years, I have been an avid collector of scale model cars. Originally they were all 1:18 model Porsches, but in more recent times I started only collecting the Porsche 550 spyder models which lent itself to the 1:43 scale ones. The more you look, the more you find, but in recent years I have had to balance period correct parts for my spyder or the choice of a new model – the parts won! Slowly the Porsche collection is getting smaller and being replaced with 550 models. I have them on display in my office’s boardroom table – always a good conversation starter!
