Default Offshore boat collectables

I am looking for offshore boat collectables. Specifically the smaller scale race boats. Has anyone ever seen any of these? Any info would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks

Last year there was a guy on here that was in the process of making offshore race boat collectibles. Have not seen anything yet. I think they would sell like crazy.

Here is a crystal Cigarette Top Gun that I bought in Bermuda about 15 yrs ago.

Wouldn't it be cool to have a miniature made of your boat? Probably cost a grand or so, but would be a nice desk piece...

Cigracer,

It has a decal from Magic Crystal, West Germany.

Good luck!

When I was little I collected HotWheels and MatchBox cars like crazy. I had the Miami Vice tow truck/boat/trailer. It was my favorite!!! The boat locked onto the trailer AND floated!!! I would play with that for hours, loading and unloading, boating and loading, etc. I hope I still have it around at my mom's home somewhere....

Last I checked, Cigarette still had some of the 42 Tiger RC models. They are really nice, I bought four just because I had waited so long for someone to produce one. When I get some spare time, I'm going to modify one to look like our 38 Top Gun. It won't be exact but it will be close.
