Maybe he got it from Gift Centre. I think they are the only ones who stock these things now. Unless his valentine had it custom made from Autoart for him

No, Gift Centre Does not have this. This was at Prabhat(shivaji park). They had just one, lying since quite a while.

Looks Superb. But you should have left the Hood White. It would look like an M3 then.

i thought of the ac schnitzer BMW 1st, so made the hood black. but later lowered the car & made the wheels black to look like an M3.

thanx sinner!

well, there is a bentley in the bentley box
continental GT. i dont remember who is the model maker... but it came from the factory. it also has a 'official bentley collection' tag and smells wonderful... like the car itself. alongwith that i also have a bentley mug...

by the way, does anybody know that you get ferrari scale models at shell petrol pumps? i got a 430 (1:38)... its pretty decent and for 100 bucks, its a steal..

@Nitrogary: Bentley factory models are usually Minichamps - could be wrong.
also suggest you shut the face of your display case with glass. Dust on models is very difficult to clean, specially when it fill the interior details/gaps.
Nice Dragster. What make is your Countach? my Bburago has closed lights.

Yeah i know. They are placed on top of the TV and are near the window so are very prone to Duct. Eben the models which are securely placed inside my showcase get extremely dusty extremely quickly.

cyrus man, those are the ones.. i was a little lazy to go there. so got only one which was left...
@ mustang
youre right. the bentley is made by minichamps. so are some of the others.
i know man, the showcase was done wrongly... i hate it when dust gathers on the models. soon, i ll add another row.
thats when i ll have it with a glass door.
the dragster is a ford t-bucket. its some limited edition. my dad got it from the ford museum in detroit.
the countach is autoart. i love it. the red spark plug lead cables drom the distributor look sexy!
i ll post some close ups when i clean them... it takes 3-4 hours at least man...
@ agspins, the box has a continental gt.
