A little story on how i got exposed to EXOTO models for the first time two years ago. It was my second year in college, I bought a used model for closed to $85. wow, I didn’t know why this model was so expensive comparing to my other HOT WHEELS lamborghinis, MAISTO corvettes. But I was obsessed with the realistic tires and rims, plus I had not seen a model with so perfect paint and tampo painted decals. (later I learned EXOTO has some serious paint problem with some particular models).
So I met my first EXOTO Cobra Daytona there, I believe that it was #13. And then I found myself wanting to collect almost every model that EXOTO makes, haha, maybe this is so-called ripple effect. My favorite series is always Sauber C9, superior finish and engine wiring really delight me every time I get a glance of it.
Now I am proudly collecting 200+EXOTO models, maybe one day I would complete the collection and have a sell off on eBay.
Along the way, I have studied EXOTO business model, paid attentions to what other collectors had to say about their EXOTO experiences. One of my pastime has been macro photographing my EXOTO collection.
I have recently acquired this photography lighting tent with 2 115W and 1 150w photography lamps on the top, a perfect mate for my Canon EOS Rebel XS.
