Monthly Acquisitions: January 2016

January sees another 29 models added to my collection. I had hoped to be a little restrained after the excesses of December, but there was too much temptation.

14 models (half the total) came together in a package from Estonia. Details

I also found 15 around Tbilisi.


January Acquisitions

The first model I bought in the month was a Nissan GT-R by RMZ City. There were also a few Hot Wheels: a Ford GT from the HW Speed Graphics a Mainline category with many tempting cars. There were more Hot Wheels Fords in a Mustang 5 Pack, which I got cheaply at Vagzlis Basroba market for 12 lari (in the shops 5 Packs fetch almost 35 lari).

There was also a Scion FR-S (a rebadged Toyota GT86), a Jaguar XK8 and Rip Rod (a regular Treasure Hunt).

At Drybridge Market I found a Soviet made Moskvitch 434, a Welly Chevette and a 1911 Maxwell Roadster.

There was also a Welly Jaguar XK180 from Pepela.

A late acquisition (29 January) was a ‘52 Hudson Hornet, I found in Metro Mart.
