It really looks good. Where did you pick it up from, and also the cost?

benbsb29 this is a tamiya 1:24 scale kit i built in 1994. Tamiya kits are available in any hobby shop or Tamiya centre in places like Sigapore/HK/japan/malaysia etc. The kits range from US$ 20 t0 50. BTW u need to work for many hours put detailing to get the final car ready as u see it. If u go to the Tamiya site you will see what is new and what is still available, some of the old ones from the late 80's & 90's are not available outside japan. The only place u can get them is Japan where the entire range is available.

If u don't want to build i recall seeing a good diecaste some years ago in 1:18 scale Gift Center in Mumbai or any indian hobby shop will fix u one for say Rs4 to 5 grand cheers

Hi CanonBall, nice collection of scale models. I remember seeing that particular LC model from Tamiya, but with UN decals. Do you use an airbrush ? I prefer WW2 aircraft myself, mostly in 1:72 & 1:48 scale. It's difficult to get model paints & other paraphernalia here in Chennai, I however did manage to get a few tins of Humbrol model paint which ran out a long time ago

Hi srini thx for the compliment I mostly use Tamiya ready to spray arosol cans which has so far given me showroom finish (gloss & consistency). I usually get mine on my over seas trip or friends who travel. The Tamiya centre in Singapor is large and well stocked I believe. Humbrol is that indian brand?
