You can get it for 300$. I think I can haggle it to 275$. So how are all these 23k and 40k even coming up. There are sellers trying to sell it for $400 tops. But 40,000Rs ? Noway!

all i know collector had bought it from UK and he said it cost around 40k when i asked him about price....
maybe for this MS edition FXX it might cost that much....

there are a lot more in his collection like Mclaren f1(lot of racing versions and pure),M3 all except e92 versions,escort WRC,DBR9 LeMans,911 GT1,Maserati MC12,Esprit,M1,Panoz roadster,Bugatti veyron,Enzo,F430,355 spyder,skyline,....couldn't take pics as i have no cam,will try to get some pics from friends....
DBR9 & FXX were standouts with stunning detailing...

Not at all..take some FABRIC paint and paint over it. It will give you a good finish. You need to have a good steady hand though.
I have one the above in all my cars.

The collector is probably putting you on. Ran a search on ebay - Ferrari FXX... the highest is at USD 279.99 Buy Now rate, that converts to around INR 11,296, even if shipping is included it isn't likely to touch INR 23,000.

Nice car, just that the owner may need to ease up on his chatter a little, seems to have a really nice garage, wish him the best.

GTA, I have used fabric paint when I started modding a few years ago. It retains its slightly sticky nature (thanks to our humidity) and is an excellent dust magnet.

I have the Gallardo in 1:18 from Maisto, but not the Spyder version. Trying to get the whole lineup
They are Maisto
Picked it from Model Art @ Forum Mall, Bangalore.

Hey GTA, what kind of paint do you use and do you airbrush the models?
Nice job on the horse

I use normal brushes and normal fabric paint for the mods. The stripes have been vinyled on. Used them from another logo thingy. Please go ahead and mod your rides fellas.

GTA, have you painted the lights from the insides or just over them?

From inside. The whole assembly was taken apart and painted and then put back together using the miracle of superglue.
