So.... you collect teddy bears too.
Sadly, we don't have a Teddy Bear Thread. (There is a BHPian named TeddyBear, by the way)

Thinking of starting one?

On a serious note, do "play" with your scale models once in a while. Otherwise, the tyres tend to lose their shape, if you make the cars stand idle in the same position for longer period of time.

Guys,

Came to India for 4 days for some work and had been to Bangalore to visit my sis for a day. Ended up going to ModelArt and buying 4 AutoArts. All you enthusiasts must make a trip to ModelArt they have a great collection. They even had a rare Mazda RX-7 by Kyosho. I wanted to buy it but.. anyway

1:18 AutoArt Lotus Esprit V8 (Yellow) HE
1:18 AutoArt BMW 2002L (Red Metallic)HE
1:18 AutoArt Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.0 (Barolo Red) HE
1:18 AutoArt Nissan Skyline R34 V Spec (Midnight Purple) HE

Left these back in India so sorry no pics but,

And then came back to Dubai, today had been to the supermarket with a colleague en route to a meeting and ended up discovering a bunch of Wellys.

1:18 Welly Chevrolet El Camino (Red) HE
1:18 Welly Ford Mustang Boss (Red) HE
1:18 Welly Dodge Charger Daytona (Yellow) HE
1:18 Welly Lotus Elise (Yellow) HE

These last 4 I will click some pics and post. And tomorrow I will have big news cause the model car dealer called to say a huge bunch of new stock has arrived so I guess half my paycheck is out the window.
