Looks like a couple of them are from Tamiya and/or Kyosho...?
Thanks for the kind words!

The cars are not model kits, the majority of them are done by AUTOart. They make super detailed die cast scale models.

Thanks! Most cars are AUTOart with some Kyosho, Franklin Mint, etc. Construction vehicles run the entire spectrum from DHS, NZG, TWH, Conrad, etc.

I've got about 15% of his collection photographed, will do it piece by piece when I visit.

Wow. This is my niche. Your dad's collections are unique. Needless to say, your photography is impressive.

I recall building some models similar to the 4 engine dragster. I would not be surprised if your dad started with the same kit adding his special touches.
