its never worth it if you calculate the cost of the collection. Its only the joy you obtain from the cars that matters.
Fixing a price on a collection should never be (and is never, i hope) done by any serious collectors like dippy.

Hey adit

Thanks for the appreciation of my collection. I have never calculated how much I spend on these machines and I dont think I ever will. Its just that when you see these beauties all you have in mind is to buy it it forgetting the price.

Its all about the love of these cars and I'm sure fellow collectors agree. Islero has shared my sentiments too. I dont see myself stopping either so I have hope to have a massive collection by the time I am old.

Waiting for next additions soon. Rest assured the pics will be there. You can ask me any questions regarding the collection except the cost since I would be able to answer that

Cheers

Not a bike 1:87, sinner. Im talking about cars. Even though it still is very small.

But the level of detail is stunning. Youll see what I mean when I post pics.

Fellows

Had got a call from Hindustan Times (English Edition) asking me about my models 2 days ago and apparently I got calls from friends that there are a few lines on me in their article on Model Art and scale models in the supplement today which comes with the newspaper .

Maybe you guys can check it out. Date : 11th Feb 2006
