I haven't spotted the F2005 at the Shell Outlets here yet!
I have Enzo & 360 Spider in the collection.

Thank you, flotsam. Mine is a Maisto GSX 1300R Hayabusa 1:12
The Z4 is 1:38 from Kinsmart.

Next, I have my eyes set on a RC BMW M3. The cost, being almost 4k, I will have to wait for some time before I pick it up.

Yup, will try to keep them that way. I am sure my son would get the better of me one day and open them all.
Great to hear that you got the F1 too, so now your collection is complete.
Regarding new cars in my collection, do you really want me to be thrown out of my house?

I got them thru a relative from Shell, Hosur Road, Bangalore.
There is a Shell pump in Navi Mumbai. Last time when Hrishi visited them they didnt have the F1 car with them but had everything else. I would be in that area on Friday. If you want I can check with them for the complete bunch.

I believe they should be available at all Shell pumps. I think the F1 car is the one that is a little difficult to source. Rest five should be available easily.

Yup, 100 bucks each.

Thanks for the comments, guys!
@Amit : Spare wheel lifted from the Bolero.
@Cyrus : Wheels are from a Wrangler.

I also added a subtle bull bar. Here are pics before/after bullbar and also one showing the spare wheel.

Currently, spare wheel is attached with double sided tape. Thinking on how to make it a permanent mod.

Thumbs up Aa Mb 190e

@Cyrus :nice ferrari.I have that model too,but from BBR.

@Dippy:Got the merc?am waiting to see.

@Both Cyrus and Dippy: Do you have any pic of Shell Ferraries?I saw two models in one's house (not a diecast collector-kept in showcase along other showpieces,like stonedust made Parrot,crystal Ganeshji ).There was plenty of dust over it,so it did not made any appeal to me.But in the packages they looks great here!
Anyway,cyrus why you told not to open the pack?

@crazybiker46,flotsam and planet rocker: nice pictures

Here is one from my collection.Probably its a repeatation.Mercedes Benz 190E 1:18 from Autoart.This is a second hand car,the original owner dissambled the engine from it-so,I got it for 10 GBP some years back .
