hi,

can anybody tell me how to turn the highly glossy and shiny chrome like parts of a scale model to dull finish. this problem is apparent in low cost (read Maisto) models : I need this especially for Disc Brake finishing.

thank you! here few of them. don't have right pics (waiting for the right camera for close up pics). the bike has active suspension at the both the sides. front one mimics almost exact mechanism of that of original R1100R.

Two Ferraris, 20 years Apart!!!

The Testarossa and the Scaglietti

First things first, this car is going to be turned into a full blown Super Tourer. The only problem, is that somehow, i cant get it apart!!! The moment i get it apart, The First thing i am Doing is painting the DAMN Chrome grille BLACK. But it will be Gloss Black. And the logo shall remail Chrome. Then the Wheels will go non-silver. They will most probably also go black. Just the way i like it...Watch this car closely....ALOT of future mods coming up. Nothing crazy and over the top, just subtle but suitable mods.

Sinner, how much did the Lancer cost you?

Meanwhile, here are some pics of my Mahindra. Bought it to provide some company to its cousin the Rubicon.

It came with a rocket launcher attached, but i got rid of that. Some pics.

@Amit_V8 : That jeep actually looks very desirable! And you bought that in 1997! Wow!

@Cyrus: Use a well-lighted area, and avoid the flash when clicking pics. They'll come out really well. You have a good collection of exotics.

I had a look at the pictures of the 1:18 W124 E Class by Autoart. Its crazy moreso because I love this car so much. Goes for 114 USD and available only in US and Canada for now. This is at the top of my wish list now. This and the 190 E . I am going to start expanding my Benz collection now after Ferraris when finances permit. But I will get the W124 and 190E anyhow.

I dont know about the E for now but I'm really tempted to buy the AA W221 S Class and the Maisto W220 S Class if they are available here. Any idea on the pricing?

Yes, The 221 S Class AA is 3.5k. Its on my "To be Bought" list since a long time. Just waiting for the GTR as of now Though.

Also, Maisto Makes the 220 S600 in the Playerz range. Dont know if they have a normal version of it. Salil has the S600 in a bluish grey i think. With Bling wheels.

3.5 k is not at all bad for a W221 AA. Cyrus, Maisto does make a normal W220. Question is where to find one. Maybe Nikhil can help.
