Welcome to the newly launched subsite of
Some of us Hondaphiles and Acuraphiles
cannot get enough just having our 1:1 scale cars, we also need to savor
the miniature versions of our cars and sometimes even those in the Honda
family we don't have in our garages or driveways or street parking :).
My Hondamobilia collection started about 15 years ago - at a time when models
of Honda cars were rare, at least in the US. The most common Honda cars were the
Hondas. This was largely due to Honda not licensing their brand or model names
or designs to toy and model manufacturers. However, over the last few
years, things have changed. Now, there is a huge selection of Honda vehicles.
In addition to scale models, my HondaMobilia collection also includes Honda
brochures, pins, books, videos, press kits and pretty much anything about Honda
cars. To date, I have cataloged about 60% of my model cars and 15% of other
Honda related collectibles.
I will attempt to do a few things with this site:
- Have a virtual display of my HondaMobilia collection
(over 5000 items large at this time)
- Publish my reviews of various Honda scale
models - I will publish a new review every week on average plus updates to
current pages of new models or photos.
Eventually, I'd like to include a
sale/trade forum and a discussion forum...
Please keep in mind that the reviews are from the perspective of a collector
based in the US. This probably means that I have limited access to many of
the Japanese market items.
I do my own photography for models in my collection. Please do not use
the photos for commercial purposes (including as photos for auctions).
If there are any inaccuracies, please let me know so that I can improve the
