@ ruffryder, the bad thing about the vespa is each & every part is silver. being a 1:18, the brake, start lever, shud have been black as normal. i saw these models before but didn't go for them as the finishing wasn't too good.[/quote]

but it was on a sale and thought Rs. 45/- would not be a bad deal for it...

@RuffRyder: Why dont you pick up a paintbrush some black paint and do the requried. The Vespa will look much better.

Lovely pictures everyone. Youre right Mav it is raining supercars out here

@Cyrus: Nice pictures. I like they grey one though

@Mav: Just love the GT90. Missed out on that one

@navin: Nice pictures esp the CGT

@ Ruff: Thats a very cute Vespa

Seeing all this I think I should take some pictures of my existing car lineup and post them here. Have quite a few like the XJ220, Zonda, Evo VI, E4 M3 etc..

I have seen a matt black superleggera and the price mentioned as around 1.4k in OASIS. I had picked a nice replica of mustang MACH1 for around 250 bucks. The details are not as good as the costlier ones but it defenitely looks hot. If any of you visit oasis do check it out, the mustangs look really neat, and also they have some endeavours and cayennes and porshe's etc. I think they are pretty good enuf for the price of 200Rs or lesser. The mustang looks like the brown/purple one in the above photo minus the skirts and different alloys . It is navy blue in color and has silver racing stripes. Looks real neat.

Hi amit, sorry to dissapoint you for the photos since i dont have a comp at home and am not allowed to upload photos from my office desk top. But i just googled out and here is the link Ertl 1:18 scale diecast 1970 Ford Mustang Mach 1 in Grabber Yellow with Black stripes . This is ditto the same one that i have only that the wheels are different and the color is blue with silver stripe in the bonnet. Other than that everything is the same along with the spoilers and the rear window plastic panes and MACH1 written on the lower portion of the door

There is another link with a similiar colored one 1970 Mustang Mach 1 Highway 61 blue 50587 Diecast Cars but the detailing on this is more precise. In my scale model the bonnet along with the doors is openable but not the back dickey.

will check out the make and let you know.
