@ Cyrus: Quattroporte in Italian means four door;here are also four Italian cars in the last page! I bought those from your City Cyrus...and yes that 512 is difficult to find now.I can not find the reason why the seller could not sell them in past four years in Mumbai,where you,Dippy and all other model hungry person live!

@abhishek: Nice pictures of the Quattroporte. I had the chance to pick one up when I was in KL way back in 04' but somehow gave it skip. Guess I'll buy this and the Granturismo together but thats later. Right now I want to increase the tribe of the tri pointed star in my scale model garage

@Yajaman99 - Excellent collection dude. I see a Bugatti EB110 and a Maybach 62. Good finds.

Just one question? What is the black car in the bottom right of the Ferrari shelf?

The lights and one of the wheels have conked..thanks to my 4 year old son and his curiosity on why the the bulbs wouldnt glow and how much he could make its wheel turn. Once he dipped a singapore brought ferrari RC into a bucket of water to see if the ferrari could swim.

@artofzen: Its really very easy to shoot by virtue of digital cameras.Just goto PAI website-yes,it is difficult to get a membership there,but you can learn many things from their forum.Also look for some foreign sites which will guide you in how to build "home made" diffusers,photobooth etc.Also I welcome your apprecitions.

@yajaman99: Splendid collection in a nice display cabinet.Its nice to watch the diecasts in woody case with a leafy background.I think they create a more dramatic effect in real life giving "in the world" visual effect.

Been away for a while and the thread has grown by 4-5 pages, my my and look at those mercedees vans, morris, vincent and like I am envious.

@ yajaman : the collection is damn good, can you put few more pictures of Mclaren F1 road car. It's been a dream to own one from day one.

@flotsam: where in singapore did you picked up those minichamps models and for what price. I go often for official meeting's. Never searched for scale models in singapore though. Are they cheap over there, i know electronic items are cheaper.
