@Rudra: I have absolutely no words for your shot. First you do this brilliant photography and then explain something which goes over the head and grin. Please explain what you did for this shot

And I am really really happy that you will be the first to click my W124 E Class rather than myself. Thank you so much for sourcing this model for me. I was desperate as you could make out from the crazy phone calls I made to you

@flotsam: Thats a beautiful Morris. This is the first time I am seeing a 1:18 of the Minor. Minichamps make some fine cars.

@abhishek: Waiting for your pictures and nice shot of the GT2

The White one, is also a Maisto. And yes, it sports some subtle mods.

Wow! Siddvi, I love this tow truck! Always wanted one myself. Superb!
@manishalive, the Morris is 1:18, Minichamps,and the Vincent is 1:12 from Minichamps. Both purchased in .sg

Here is one of my favourites: a 1:12 Ducati Monster from Minichamps.

Arrow 2005 Williams F1 team BMW FW 27

Here is one of my latest addition.
The 2005 Williams F1 team BMW FW 27 Driven by Mark Webber 1:18 diecast replicated by Mattel/Hotwheel (year 2005,China)

(I am very sorry that I can not compress the files losslessly)

Here is a small interesting History of this car:
"This period (2000–2005) saw Williams depart from the standard livery scheme in motorsport, which consists of one colour scheme, either the teams' or the major sponsors', with smaller logos in their own scheme. BMW stipulated that, and paid for, the whole vehicle to be in blue and white, with other sponsors adopting this scheme. Also in 2000, Williams abandoned tobacco advertising in favour of Information Technology companies, as the team’s second major sponsor became Compaq. That sponsorship lasted until Compaq’s acquisition by Hewlett-Packard. At the 2002 British Grand Prix, the team debuted the Hewlett-Packard sponsorship. After complaints about the HP logo on the rear wing it was replaced in 2003 with the sponsor’s tag line, "Invent".One of the most memorable results of this technological partnership was a worldwide television commercial featured drivers Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya seemingly driving their BMW Williams cars around a track by radio control from a grandstand.

This "clean" image allowed Williams to sign a cigarette anti-craving brand, Niquitin,and Anheuser-Busch, alternating with the Budweiser beer brand and Sea World Adventure Parks,in compliance with trademark disputes or alcohol bans." (Reference:Wikipedia)

@Dippy: I will post the newer ones now,then the olders and I welcome your appreciation.
Have I made the post unduly long?
What about if we start model specific review?(better,if we had Child forum)

@Cyrus: Sorry I missed that,actually I was not a member then,so I read all the pages as a back log-so accidentally missed.The GTR duo are one of the best mod by you.
