Recently my collection crossed 120 in numbers & its still growing. But for some time I've not snaped it. And it's after a long time I'm visiting this beautiful thread, then I thought of sharing some photos I took few months back when I took many of my autos out of its garage (show case) to add up couple of racks. Its not the entire collection, also post some of my favorites among the entire collection. I'll post more photos of all the models soon.

Hanmust, lovely collection there. Being yours, i am not at all surprised to see mostly Mercs in there. Will appreciate better pics of the rest as well.

@Cyrus, for the Skyline, do the B pillars and window outlines in black as well. Looks like you missed that out.

Thank you all for the compliments. I'll defenetly post better & more photos of all my models. But I've two kids in the age of 3 & 1 years, so can't take out the miniatures from show case when they are at home, as you all can guess what'll happen . Hence will snap when wife took them to her house on holidays.

Wow the is looking good, now where to find Bosny clear coat paint ( i believe we are talking of spray cans) and if that be the case is surfacer primer also available in spray can. I have couple of cars to paint from the ground up.

Cyrus and all,I need that information too-because,I have a Tin London Bus
from my grandpapa-it is in very rusty condition.Both painting by brush and painting by using vaccuam cleaner sprayer sucks.I will post the pics later.

nice price to pay for-I think the model is not available now.It would be around 1200-1300Rs. if it was available-but,the finishing was much better then.Really,its a nice collectors piece Dussy.
