Dippy, I've tried a different lighting for your duo-tone silver baby. Problem with silver colour (especially for model cars) is they look very flat with regular lighting. I had to mask out acrylic with black paper strips to get this. Front light is bounced from white papers and mirror.

Rudra,

Amazing Photography, can we know of the trade secret. Can we meet some time.

Then came along great inventors who laid the very foundation for various modes of transport that provided a platform for further innovation and improvement over generations.

Autofest City is fortunate to have authentic scale replicas of all the important firsts in the world in transportation history. Here is the link to our newsletter celebrating the dawn of a great new era in transportation: V8-I8 Aug 2009.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

Acting on feedback from many friends who always keep writing in we added a new page to our website at webs.com. This page titled ‘This Month In Closeup’ will feature exhaustive photographs of a highly-detailed scale model at Autofest City each month. Please use the following link to go directly to the page:
This Month In Close-up

Let’s go back in time.

Best regards,
Neil D’Costa
Co-founder – Autofest City
Neil,

Awesome man, mind blowing, ever since I come to know of you I am dying to meet you and cherish seeing your collection. Can we come and see your collection and if yes then when its preferable to you.

Default " Star of India "

dhrishikesh,
here is the 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II, " Star of India ", Italeri kit assembled by me around 7 years ago. Italeri make excellent plastic kits which are highly detailed. They are a pleasure to assemble . As they are highly detailed, there are lots of small parts one has to be careful about as they are easily lost while assembly. All the best with the kit.

I collected these models in between 70's and 80's. Not sure if they are still available. Need to find out. Each one has a serial number at the bottom as Y1,Y2 etc. Lost some as my kids use to play with them in my absence.
