Now My favourite. The SKYLINE GT-R R34. This is a royal SLAP IN THE FACE of AutoArt. The detailing is Mindblowing. And it is onli 23$ or something.

Same old US Army Willys in dark Olive green.
The detail on that toy is pretty authentic though
cheers
Thanks Shankar !!
This MB too is quite authentic in details.

Would love to see the snaps of your jeep's too. What scale it is ?

Cheers

Well, here are some pictures of my Alfa Romeo 8C 2300. It is a 1:32 Airfix kit. The box says this particular car was owned by Mike Hawthorn, the racing driver. Hope you guys like it
This is an Absolute Stunner. Very rare car i think. Keep it well!!

Voila! So you finally got what you always wanted. Good going.
What brand is the skyline? Methinks the Evo needs black wheels.

What is your mom's reaction? Fuming? More cars means more boxes.

Suggestion: Keep the 1:18s as stock as possible. Try all extreme mods on your 1:24s

Car came without box. Directly from US ith a friend. Those wheels i got royally suck. And yes, I finally got what i want. Wish Fullfilled. Now i need a supra!! And yes i will keep them stock. But i am not changing the Evos wheels color. I took this car because of this reason. The detailing on the skyline is worth a second look. When you coming to have a look at it? And get your Skyline Please.

@Cyrus43: The M5 looks great now. Try and see if you can get any other matt colours. Yesterday I saw a matt red/maroon SL55 AMG and it looks great. Cannot describe how hot it looked.

What make is the Evo 7? And the Skyline I take it is Motormax? You cant compare it with an AA but Im sure its a good effort from Motormax. Enjoy the new models. All these budget models, I would say you can modify without any worries. They're released in large numbers so will not be rare. But when you get your first AA etc. be careful with those cause you know never which is going to become the next scale model holy grail ! Anyway keep collecting

Those are nice addtions Cyrus. Please keep them well. The detailing looks great on the Skyline but certainly one cant compare with the AAs and the Kyoshos. Just wait till you get your first AA model and you will know what I'm talking about. BEEMER has already given you a low down. As he said Motormax are good value . My Zonda is from Motormax.

I don't know if you have realised this: Your Lancer's bodykit, hood, wheels(?) and spoiler are exact replicas of Bryan O'Connor's 2Fast 2Furious Lancer Evo. So, a few years down the line, if you think of repainting it, you know which colour to use.

Here's my evoVIII with snaps from under the hood. Check out the sub and the amp in the 1st pic. Bad quality pics cause water went in my digi and thus used my cell.

Is that an Import Tuner from JADA or is it an X Tuner?
