Gargash sells the Mercedes Benz models, and Al Jaziri has the Lamborghini models... I think some of the other agents sell their scale models as well... but I didn't get the Reventon from KOH or Hobby Center... picked it up online. The funny part is how I came to know about the existence of the model... was surfing souq.com and came across the model... guy was selling it for AED1200... I asked for a discount and he says can only reduce by 200... so I did some searching on Ebay... got one guy selling it from UK for AED290 with shipping... placed the order and got it a week later... then went back to souq.com and left the guy a message about the same.

do they have any 1:18 Defenders or early model Landrovers?
cheers
Thanks. Sorry but didn't find and Defenders, frankly didn't really look that much for them.

Detailing is pretty neat can't complain, the color is outstanding. But the engine bay isn't detailed... but then not much is really known about this car except that it shares alot with the Murcielago... maybe Mondo should have put a 1:18 Murcielago engine into it for details... but love it just the same... oh!! and the wheels are also good I feel.

Home made? Mate looks like you are really using your free time to do some prodcutive work.

BTW i had designed and ordered one Storage unit but the guy delayed the delivery by 2 weeks ticking me off to cancel the same. Now i am hunting for a good carpenter.

Guys / Mods i am sorry to go off topic here.

Since I got a job, not had much spare time... did those units when I was in school... now with no time, had to resort to buying the units, that is why the black one came in.

Friend, this is my first 1:18 scale model. It was bought from the US by my uncle way back in 1993. So, it is very dear to me. The detailing on this car is so good that it will put even Maisto to shame in some aspects.

For instance, the tyres have all the technical specifications inscribed on them. Even the word "tubeless" is etched on the tyres. The wiper is hinged and so it can actually move. The roof is removable as I told you earlier. The engine bay is highly detailed. Some piping is actually made up of rubber and so on.

Now, the sad part. For reasons I don't want to mention, the car is in very bad condition. The seats are missing. Two wheels have disappeared. Door handles are gone. The roll over bar is broken. Paint is scratched. The end can is also broken.

Whenever time and budget permits me, I want to restore the car to its original glory.

The car is 15 years old and still looks so beautiful. Check out the red SL500 in the pics.

Mumbai University has messed up with the syllabus. So life is very busy till mid-June.

I am posting a small part of me and my brother's (300 KMPH)'s collection. I've already posted the 1:18 cars.

Note that this is just about 10% of the entire collection. The rest of the cars are packed and kept in Pune.
e.g. many Kinsmart cars and some 1:24 cars are missing from the pics.

Till then, enjoy!

Some more pics will be posted by 300 KMPH later.

Salil from you pictures I think the 1:18 SL500 you have is from a company called Road Tough. I remember seeing these SLs in Prabhat and other stores long ago. I have a 1:18 Toyota Landcruiser by Road Tough (1992 model).
