Just ask me, 90% of my collection is Maisto and i will keep on buying them until i get more money. As i said, i have a few problems with them but these are problems that make you smile.

Long live maisto

Yeah man... If only i had a Gallardo.. I'm sure that'll be my next one. BTW the yellow Gallardo i posted earlier belongs to the same friend.

So i must admit that the Carrera GT and M6 will look fantastic next to the mighty bull.

What Say?

i'm sooo sorry to disappoint you dude. But be sad only if you wished for a White BMW M6.
They still have 1 of both R8 and Carrera GT ( same colours). They have a BMW M6 but in Navy Blue color.

They also have 8 Rubicon , Porsche 911, Audi RS4, and a few 1:24s.

The White M6 is exactly what i wanted. It would have complemented my Silver M5 perfectly. And i am not a big fan of darker colors.

Please sinner PLEASE post up some pictures of the car asap. Evemn if it is from a cell phone camera!!

Good Pics Sinner! The M6 looks good in white only the grille is spoiling the looks of the whole car. Just my opinion though.

Where are the pics of R8?

Its been over 9 months since I bought my last 1:18. That was ... ahh 770K Pullman. Im just waiting for my new showcase to get ready. After that im planning to build small clubs like 200mph club, Off-road club, Vintage Club etc

Nice pictures sinner. I really wish they gave those wheels on the M5 1:18 model as well just like they do on the real cars. Get those R8 pictures up quick. Whats the R8 priced at anyways?

Dippy as i told you at the autoshow, the wheels will most probably be interchangable. I just have to chek the assembly of the M6 to be sure.
