Thank you Dippy,for correcting me.Actually,I bought a Bburago Vintage 5 weeks ago(that is1:24;no 1:18 available for this Merc 1928),that was made in China-But,it was made in Sept 2008.So,now they make in Thailand-I have no idea whether they are good or worse than the China made.
Anyway,I am posting two pics(close up is blurred due to shake in high ISO)-it may be a offtopic-but enjoy the profile pics of SuperSelect,Dippy and me,in the background(I took the box out to check;can not controll myself to take the shots).

Yes SuperSelect,I have also noticed the quality difference in 1:64 models in India and UK.

I know that your work is not completed,I am just pointing out what seems to need your attention.
But why didnt you masked the BMW logo over Bonnet during painting?Try to mop the paint with thinner/terpentine oil-if nothing clears out,print in appropiate scale of the BMW 3D logo(like my profile picture).
What happened to her eyes?Extra pressure to take them out,or thinner made it opaque?Try Xylene to make them clear.

I want to see the best Finishing touch from you mate,like that GTR.
Ill give you a bit of background on this car. This is my Keeda car. My trial and error time pass is all done on this one. I appreciate your inputs though. The thing with the headlights is as follows. they were painted black ages ago. And then the paint started coming out, so i was using thinner to take it off and thus this happened. But its ok with me. I like that grey smoked look. And the best thing is that the car looks super stunning in my Showcase.

Fiat 500 1:16, by Solido. Made in France.
Kudos Superselect, lovely Ferrari & Fiat 500.

After our last Bangalore trip my wife gifted me a 'Assembly Line' semi-build Ferrari 1:24 model from Maisto. I was so excited as its my first Assembly Line even thought I've made somany model of my own by clay & card-boards. I was so excited that I couldn't control my self even after a late night drive back from Bangalore & I assembled it the same night. Here are the pictures of my 123rd member of my garage!

Cyrus, this looks a lot better than the matt black effect. Seriously, i wondered how you ever decided on that! However, why yellow? White would have looked awesome.

Kudos for your assembly line model. I too have the 1967 mustang and Ferrari F60 1:24 assembly line from the same company. It was fun.

I am working on a revel 1:24 assembly line kit which involves glueing and painting, has got 120+ pieces to assemble. I will be posting Pictures once I start Assembling.

HAHA!! Well, that was a year ago, when I had a Fetish for Matt Black. Anyways,Ill tell you why yellow and not white. You cant get this shade of yellowish orage in the market. White on the other hand, Maisto makes.

Nice kit manish. Looks like it will be quite a task to put it all together. It will be hours of fun though. Happy assembling

Tks for the appreciation. I did not purchased the Glue (it was 18 dollars) with the kit. Now Can any one suggest which Indian Glue to use (will it be feviquick)???
