Hey there guys, Amit B here again after an extremely long hiatus. University has taken up most of my time and my collecting has shifted away from die cast, but BMW is still my passion. I’m more focused on collecting vintage BMW dealer accessories and have been slowly accumulating a decent collection so far. But don’t you worry I haven’t completely deserted die cast! Being home from University this week inspired me to make a new post and I want to get more actively involved with what I think is the best community on the internet.
Some of you may remember me but there seems to be a load of new members which is so great! I haven’t uploaded in so long but you bet I’ve been lurking and seeing all the amazing stuff you guys have been up to.
My collection of dealer models has been coming along nicely and now I have enough that when displayed, the so called clap-boxes look very impressive.
Finally found a nice condition 1:12 Kyosho James Bond BMW Z8. If you guys want I can do another post showing all the different features this amazing model has.
I still have a lot of ongoing projects, with this 635CSi and 3.0 CSL nearing completion.
Some models you just can’t pass up, so when I saw this Marushin BMW M1 with the pop up headlights and push button doors, I had to have it. Some of you might recognise the green Turbo in the box, these two make such a good pair. I got that Turbo from Jobjoris a couple years ago, and true to my word to him I still have it and will never sell it!
Here is some examples of the vintage BMW M-Style products I’m into collecting now. They have such a cool aesthetic that reminds me of the pinnacle of BMW and its racing heritage.
It feels great to be writing a new post again after all this time, and I look forward to becoming more active in the LaLD community again!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed!
