Salil, sure shall keep a lookout for another one. I picked this up from BB, after quite some searching. There was a black Baleno and an Indica in white as well, but since i had to choose between the two, i chose the Lancer.

Just need a favour from my side, if you come across an Ikon scale model, please would you pick one for me? Kinda desperate to get one in scale, since i already have the real one.

As for the stickering, there were a lot more silly ones, which i got rid off, before i went ahead with modding it, keeping the Evo as an inspiration. Can you believe i have an embedded toothpick in that spoiler which i fabricated, for strength.

Doing the alloys was the most difficult part. I retained the Turbo sticker as the rear bumper looked really empty if i removed it.

I want to get hold of the elusive AutoArt Mitsu Evolution VI. Searching for two years in Mumbai but in vain.

@salilpawar: You are looking for the AA EVO VI WRC or the road car? I have the WRC Tommi Makkinen Edition from Autoart 1:18

Both are pretty rare. You are lucky to have that model.

Thank you, SuperSelect. Centy is still very much into making models, and for a price which is almost half of a similar scale Maisto, the detailing is just about fine. I now have an Alto, a Lancer, an Amby and an MM540 from Centy.

Couple of more pics of the Alto, with a spoiler i made.

Nice models of the Ferrari and Lambo. But, Lambo in black looks dull, had it been in its trademark color ( yellow), it would have been hot looking.

How much do they cost?

Beautiful model godsenvy. The E Type is just gorgeous. I'm guessing this is a Bburago

right guess, dippy it is a Bburago. detailing is ok ok,
one quick Q though. I don't seem to have the ORVM's with it. Is that how it is for Bburago?

Off late, I have started collecting models of the 1960-70 era.
currently have an Impala, Jag E-type and a Fiat 500.

Planning for a Porsche 356B and a Lambo Miura

@ godsenvy: In the hay days we all thought Bburago detailing was the best. Atleast I thought so. It is now after brands like Autoart and Kyosho have come that we think Bburago is ok ok. Cant blame you for that. I agree with you there

I'm not sure whether this E type model came with the mirrors. I'll check my Bburago catalogue and find out.

i however had only heard about Maisto, because that was the make of the 2 Porsche 911's that I picked up about 3 years ago.

Only when I saw AutoArt's models did I realise how much of a sea of difference there is.

I have a wallpaper of the E type and noticed the ORVM's and wondered why the scale model didn't have it. thanks dippy

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

Outstanding new additions to Autofest City - that's what we'd call these new models that we added recently to the collection. They will definitely add a special dimension to the historic importance of the city.

I love black and agree that Labo looks the best in Yellow.

I brought Lambo at 225 Rs. Ferrari at 1800 Rs.
