Default 1:18 Bugatti Royale Coupe DeVille - Type 41

Finally!!! I'm back from a long hiatus. Been busy with stuff and never seemed able to login, but, finally managed to get back.

I realise I have missed alot, but here is one of my new babies, to get my car rolling again. Putting this up first as it is the pride of my collection, the other models will be uploaded once i am able to re-organize myself.

Do let me know your opinions.

Oops, my bad. I put the scale in the title but forgot about the body.
@Traction - it has about 1300+ individual parts and is awesome. It has a shelf entirely for it... I think well deserved too

Hi. Did'nt know this thread existed till day before and all i can say is wow! Have'nt been able to go through all the pages, but I'm really impressed with the collections. Does anyone have any Matchbox, Corgi, Tomica, Majorette models made in 70's and 80's ? I know I have a few(maybe 40 - 50) of them lying around . Anyone ?

Ghost_rider, please post the pics from your collection.
I used to have a lot of Matchbox and Majorette models as a child, but over the years they got displaced, or damaged, and i have no idea where they are at all now.

Would love to see some from your collection.

There wont be any new cars at Gift Centre for some time now. Apparently there is some holdup at customs or some order that has been passed which affects imported toys. Somehow scale models are considered as toys. The ban is expected to be lifted in about a month or two and it will take roughly the same amount of time for the new shipments to arrive.

Why not just ebay them? Shipping shouldn't be too much on cars of such a small scale and you have access to a lot more.
