I think that I may be a contender for the smallest number of 1/24 scale
Models. Being a late starter into 1/24 I have a total of 25 models in this scale all funded from a massive sale of some 700 1/64 scale models. There are stll around 200 left to dispose of and then I'm done. At my advancing years I am finding 1/24 to be a descent eyefull. What restricts my numbers is that my interest is in cars of US design and manufacture from 1930 - 1950 and their just aren't so many of these available to buy. However, I am happy with what I do have and will add two or three more as a kit and two conversions of custom cars to regular examples are completed. Some of my favorite cars are available in 1/18 but my obsession with symmetry prevents any purchases in this big scale.
It is rather sad that there will not be new castings in 1/24 scale except perhaps for limited edition resin cast models that poke my budget brutally wiith a big stick.
