I wish Minis were this quality (Cars Minis)
Thank you Nigels!
Modeling the LNER (and some Thomas stuff) in OO Scale.
Here's another comparison shot, the same Disney Car alongside an Oxford Miniatures 1/72 scale Mini Cooper.  They seem about the same scale, bearing in mind the slightly compressed format of the Disney car if this helps.  If you're thinking of using them on a Thomas OO gauge format layout I think they would be just about perfect :)

Well would you believe it, for months I've not been able to get any 3 packs (or at least not at a reasonable price), then when checking around to see what I needed in response to Pablo's kind offer I found 3 different packs on at a reasonable price.  I've got two here now and the third is due on Monday, here's the two I received;

@Pablo - I'll let you know which others I need once I get a chance to sort out what others are available that I don't have

I like the muddy Lightning McQueen and Bus

Yeah, the bus is the one I really need from that pack, just like the gold Ramon from the other as neither are in blind bags currently :)

I can see you making a great looking, 3D printed wall hanging display case for these. Maybe one with channels that would accept a piece of clear plexiglass slid into it to keep the dust off. Maybe a smaller version of this...

Into a bad idea Super, at the moment I have them in stacking trays I printed that fit into a nice storage box :)

Sorry...I am picturing a whole wall of interlocking 3D Printed display cases for you to show off your collection. Like a jigsaw puzzle you could cover every wall in your hose .

Hmmm, I think my other half may have something to say about that idea lol

The third 3 pack of cars arrived yesterday, these are below, two are existing models I have in a normal type.  However these are also glow in the dark so effectively 3 new ones for my collection :)

I've managed to pick up 4 more of the 3 packs I was missing for my collection, 3 I actually got off (USA) and another off still got a couple I need, which I may be asking Pablo to see if he can find them for me :)

Thanks, but not as much as it seems, with some of these 3 packs I'm only actually gaining 1 additional unique model, but its the same old thing, releasing exclusive models in these multi-packs, the bane of any collectors life lol!

That is except for the metallics (blue and silver packs) as these are 3 unique models in each pack, similar t one of the glow in the dark sets I got the other week.  But at least its not as bad as the Thomas mini's where you get an exclusive with a 10 pack or something :)

good point. i always forget to take that into account, though it should be automatic to work it out. lol.

Latest two additions to my Cars 3 Mini's collection;

The first is actually one of the original series that I could never find in the UK, I managed to get it when on hols in Fuerta Ventura in a supermarket for less than it would be here lol!

The second is a new release (note: the new simplified, cheaper, tackier packaging :()
