Ok, Dippy, that's a good idea! Now to get them all together in one frame. Perhaps this weekend.

Default 1:24 Roll Royce Silver Ghost - 1907 - Franklin Mint

1:24 Roll Royce Silver Ghost - 1907 - Franklin Mint... one of my newest acquisitions. The detailing is amazing, I guess it has to be since it is from the MINT

@RPMP: What a stonker. The Rolls is really beautiful. What else can one expect from Franklin Mint Do post some daylight pictures and yes how much did it cost you?

Thank you Dippy, did you by chance happen to see the Bugatti Royale I posted earlier, I didn't notice any reply for you, so assumed you had overlooked it, let me know your opinion on it, would be appreciated.

I will get some day pictures up as soon as I find some time. The detailing to be explained in one word would be - Exquisite. I got it at a steal actually - USD 75, it is pre-owned, but well kept, as can be seen. I got the whole package - the literature, manuals & guarantee.

Hi abhi, I do have a passion for Hot Wheels as well, but the logo you see happens to be from my Hot Wheels bedspread ... that is how insane I am about cars. I am trying to get myself the Corvette bedspread as well, seeing that it is my favorite car.

I loved the way you called me..@RPMPKDMFF.I did a mis diagsosis just seeing the logo..lol..I havent noticed the whole bedsheet.
I will find a bedsheet like you,or may be paint one!You are a hardcore diecast lover (thats am going to be these days).I never liked Hotwheels 1:18 before I bought three last month at a reduced price.
I have to source a good store for Hotwheels 1:18.

Marvellous Rolls Royce!
I am also rather keen on seeing what looks like a trailer/excavator, and a couple of firetrucks in the background in the display cabinet. Could you put up photos of those as well? Thanks!

Did you notice the minor detailing differences on the Headlights?
