Between, what did you use to make the spoiler?
thanks, the spoiler is made of pure cardboard & then painted.

the decals are not stickers, i got them from the net & printed them. some 1:32 models don't, specially the centy models.

here are some more pictures with the rally mitsu.

Thanks, sinner,agspins & superselect. The 1:43 cost around USD 10 to 13 on an average or more depending on the make. I have displayed 80 of my 250 models ( I think.have lost count) in open glass shelves. I am unable to display my entire collection due to space constraints. I am in the process of constructing a room which will have closed glass display shelves, which should take around 6 months to complete. I intend displaying them catagory wise, American Vintage, British cars, special vehicles(fire engines etc) , Classics, Military models and so on.
Please note some motorcycles in the third pic.

This is a 1:43 scale model of an Amby, not very accurate. Made by IXO, ever heard of them? Me neither till I got this.
The rear window is slightly too large, perhaps thay saw this modification on my Amby. Also, wheel caps resemble the common Indian after market accessory, resembling a three pointed star.

@harit: Ixo is a well known company. They make good Ferrari models in 1:43 scale apart from other cars. This Amby is one from their special line up. It was available for 1500/-. How much did you get this for?

I have been looking for a Scaled Amby for a long time. @ harit; your amby looks neat in the pic. Wish they made it in 1:24 scale or even better 1:18 scale. How much did it cost you?

Anyone knows where to buy the model Amby in Bangalore? TIA

@Dussey: Amazing collection.

Default 1921 American LaFrance Fire Pumper.

Here's a 1921 American LaFrance Fire Pumper from my collection of special purpose vehicles. This is a Signature 1:24. Highly detailed and very good quality.
