Default Hi Guys...

Had not visited the forum for a while. Found this thread today and spent a lot of time on it. All I can say is - it's amazing - never seen so many models with high levels of detail like I did in this thread.I need some help - could someone suggest a shop in Kolkata where I can pick up some 1:18 models? I just relocated so please put in as much detail as you can.

TIA !!!

Default An American Classic.

Here's a 1949 Buick Roadmaster Convertable. This is a 1:32 National Motor Museum Mint. Good Detailing.

Thanks Guys.

@zibby and dussey nice collection of classics.

@zibby. I have the same Cadillac Eldorado Seville 1:18 in my collection too. Or may be a little different. Got to check.

OT: I need to improve on keeping track of my collections. Very easy to miss in midst of 100's. Sometimes I have ended up buying two of exact same cars.

Thanks, siddvi.
I have the same problem too, keeping track. Nowdays, I photograph them as and when I get them so that they get catalogued and its easy to post pictures too.

@dussey and amit: beautiful classics, nice pics.

@amit: nice job on the lancer. did you buy stickers on the net? where are they available?
