It looks like a 1:36 Ford GT from Kinsmart, so am I remotely close, am pretty sure I am ... Nice work on the wheels cheers:, but that is pretty mild coming from your stable.

you're good..yea it is a 1:36 from kinsmart. This car is going to remain as it as right now. I like it that way. My other purchases for the day...well...cant assure anything of its "originality"

Have a look.
Though the car is a kinsmart. It has staggering detail for a 1:36

Edit-Credit goes to SALIL PAWAR a.k.a. salilpawar1 for guiding me to the place where these cars were.
sorry for the poor quality of pics. taken from my cell phone camera.

Hey, nice ones, I have never seen the Evo from Kinsmart before. I have seen the HUMMER H2, Porsche Carrera GT, Ford Mustang GT, Ford GT (happen to have all of them), also seen the Mercedes Benz CL500, Volkswagen New Beetle, Lexus SC and Scion tC. But have never come across the Evo. Looks pretty neat, and I see you have worked the wheels in the yellow one as well ... you seem to enjoy doing the mods. All the best.

Have you seen the Beetle RSi?? that car look soo cool. Anyways. The detailing in the evo is really good. The intercooler is the crowning glory...have a look. Such detail in this scale.

Secondly-What mods should i do?

Cyrus, you got to do something about those tires on the Ford GT. They look more for offroad than supercar. Not acceptable for a model in this day and age.

Do I see the 3 pointed star on the Amby? I have seen this one at Gift Centre. It seems it is only available in this color.

Infact the detailing is not that precise. The rims and the front indicators belong to Ambys of a different era.

@GTA,
both the evos share the same underbody and interiors, so you can interchange them for fun. These Kinsmart evos are a slap on the face of AutoArt and its ultraexpensive 1:43 evos.

That was standard fitment on the Amby. And they look like The Merc sign but it isnt.

@blackadder, yes that is a three pointed star, I noticed it as well, but this was the only Amby I could find around that was diecast, it is from IXO, so I had to forego on that nitty detail. On my trip to India last year, all I saw were those plastic ones.

@GTA, adder is talking about the wheelcaps.

The thing I like about this model very much is how neatly they have placed the exhaust pipe and fuel cap.

That was standard fitment? I would believe that Mercedes would sue HM if they ever used their emblem on the Amby. I always believed that those caps were an after market job.
