    I do like those, especially since I am filling up shelf space with die cast models myself. I saw several that I have also. :) I think the IXO models are great for the variety they have available but much of their detail is painted on rather than surface / panel lines in the die cast.
    Which maker is that for the triangular base? I hadn't seen those before.
    Regards,
    Derek

    I've never really looked closely at diecasts before (I'm a plastic guy) but those look very nice, and an excellent choice of subjects. Are they all 'as they come', or have you done any modifications or re-painting yourself?

    Hey Karl - a lot of those look like IXO models. How is the quality of them?

    Cool Karl! Love to have those Bf 109s!! They look pretty decent with the detail and camo (except for that one Fw 190 Gelb 12 - all those colors hurt my eyes! ) :)

    they are all as they came no modifications the round base IXO models were being sold of in a local discount shop £10 for 3 !

    the triangle based ones are from here Atlas Editions: Duelling Fighter Planes die-cast metal models and are better quality but are only available in the U.K

    but i think i've seen em on e-bay for sale and there is 20 pairs of them !!!! but i cancelled mine after six as they were costing £20 a pair plus postage
