I have something very Interesting to share. I was generally browsing through the book stores at Kings Circle today, and i stopped by this small shop as he had a couple of Maisto Bikes Hanging in his shops. I asked him for the book I wanted but he said he didnt have it. Suddenly, A small box with a Maisto Logo caught my eye. I asked him what that was and he said "woh ek gaddi hai. Sallo se padi hui hai." I asked him to remove it and show it to me, and what i saw, Shocked me. It was a very old, Maisto Nissan Skyline GT-R. It Is in 1:24 Scale. I wil put up some pictures shortly. I had promised myself not to Mod my 1:18 Skyline ever, but this one, i will Definaltely mod.

Cyrus, the Skyline is a nice find. How much did he give it to you for?

Cyrus, personally i would prefer to have had the wheels in the original shade, but looks like you always prefer to have black wheels.

This is how lucky one can be.

>> The car's poorly detailed headlamps are begging for eyelids.
>> The window sills and door pillars need to be blackened. Do them well.
>> Try to make Recaro stickers and put them on the seats.
>> DON'T change the colour.

I wish we had the technical know how to the mods done on the skyline below. Here's the video for inspiration. You must have already seen this video.

Drooool...
