Somehow I have not yet warmed up to the looks of the Veyron or the CCX. Maybe because I have only seen them in magazines or on the net or on TV. Give me a McLaren F1 any day.

RPM, its good that diecast makers are making everyday cars too now. See how so many of them make the Beetle. The Beetle with its unchanging shape and charm was destined to be a classic anyways. Can we say the same about the Corolla or the Civic?

I have the Pagani Zonda in 1:18. Its by Motormax in silver. It isnt outstanding in detailing but pretty good quality overall. I'll post pictures if you want to see it.

Hi Dippy, was worried about the quality a bit. Not sure how they hold up against the Burago & Maisto, and I know they can not be compared to AutoArt or Minichamps, but anyways, will see if I can get one and take a chance, atleast could have it till AA or Maisto come out with one.

Would appreciate the pictures as well.

Its not bad quality at all. Just dont compare those with Autoart or Kyosho. It was priced at 17 dollars on Ebay. Will put pictures in some time. I also have KITT from Knight Rider in 1:18 by ERTL. Very nicely deatailed with opening targa tops, eject seat and winch. Even the red scanner in the bonnet works. The dashboard is replicated extremely well.

Picked up a souvenir set from my day at the Lamborghini Cafe at Souk Al Bahar, Old Town, Dubai. Actually got four of them.

Thanks guys, was always wanting to add a Vespa to the collection, it adds a special something towards the group I feel. Will be adding more Vespa models as they come up. And GTA, all are Maisto models in 1:18.
