Hey!! Does anyone know a good model car online store? I'm looking for an Arrows A2 in 1:18 scale (because I have it in 1:43 and I think its greatness is missing). A Tamiya kit or similar would work just fine too. Thanks in advance!!
P.S: If I figure out how to attach photos I can share a few pics of my babies.

I have some model cars, too. I really like the Grand Prix/F1/Indycar section and my US cars. Rally and LeMans has been growing, too. Plus some 1:24 and 1:18. And a few hundred Matchbox/Hotwheels. And Trucks, 1:87 and 1:43. And even some modified Kinder Surprise cars Aaaand Cars from the cartoon And probably a few dozen cars hidden in boxes here and there...
No no, Alberto. I mean the cars from Pixar movie. Lightning McQueen, Mater, Doc Hudson... The picture above are really "model" cars from Kinder Surprise. Amazing what did they manage to stuff into those small yellow capsules.

Ok, now I got on pictures a bit more of my collection.
This is a Fast and Furious 3 Tokyo Drift Nissan Silvia, the front stickers are missing because I didn't like them as I was a little kid and still hadn't seen the movie. Now it has some suspension damage I'm trying to fix (very realistic model... ). Oh, it's RC.
1:12 BMW X6 RC and something else...
Lego Speed Champions models, but I also have two Porsche RSR not built and the 919 and 917K. Also two other ones.
Playmobil Porsche and other supercar and superbikes. The blue one belongs my brother and the red one is shared.
And to finish my slot car collection. All they are 1:32, but the SBKs and the NASCAR are 1:43.

Actually Germany's color in that old system was white IIRC, it was when the pre-war GP cars of Mercedes and Auto Union started appearing with polished aluminum silver bodies and the famous nickname "silver arrows" was generated that they dropped white. Or maybe I am wrong.

Yes, Germany is white. The silver arrows came from Neubauer telling the mechanics to shave the paint off to save weight and therefore expose the aluminium panels. And the name was born. (Possible myth)
Or depending on what you believe, they were both just not painted at the factory. But white is Germays national colour.
