Welcome to my motor mania collection website!


Having collected 1/18 scale model cars for over 30 years now, I would like to give other collectors and enthusiasts virtual access to my collection.


I focus on street-going production vehicles, mainly British motorcars, European luxury limousines  and hyper sports cars, but a few American classics and some unusual on-scale items like boats, trucks, police and military models.


You will notice immediately that I do not only collect models, but tend to display them alongside the brochures of the real vehicles, their car mascots or badges and other automobilia and accessories.


The photographs of the models are complemented by video reviews of the original motors if available.


I regularly contribute  reviews of models at Any models reviewed have direct links to the review.


I hope, you will enjoy this website. Feel free to leave a comment in my guestbook. 


You can learn more from Diecast´s February 2014 feature about my collection.

Fresh off the KARmania Car Carrier:

To look at the models is a pleasure. But with the video game racing set-up collecting is taken to the next level.

A Playseat, Logitech G25, Teufel 5.1, Buttkicker Gamer and 50" Panasonic EXW 735 ensure hours of driving pleasure.

Thanks to an active modding community TEST DRIVE UNLIMITED allows me to take the cars that I have as a model for a virtual drive.


For the trucks this is made possible through Eurotrucksimulator 2 and American Truck Simulator.
