Hi Flotsam... I think this is what you are looking for -

1. Mercedes Benz Atego Fire Engine - 1:87 Siku
2. Mercedes Benz Atego Water Cannon - 1:87 Siku
3. & 4. MAN / LIEBHERR Heavy Haulage - 1:87 Siku

Thank you Cyrus
I will post some more photos soon.I also have a Ferrari F430 like you (@Cyrus),but its from BBR.Apparently,the outer finishing is likewise same,but interior is just marvelous...There is chance of a quick tour(a day or two) to Delhi for me soon,so..

benbsb29 wounderful experiment,guessing you used filter?This Nissan GTR from Maisto is really a sharp pencil tip 1:24 from them at that price range.Have you noticed the rims have the air valve nipples too?

Default Just snapped it now AmitV8

AmitV8 I just snapped it now without any light setup and am just lazy to change the Macro Lens...I think its not the right lens for a 1:18,just converted from RAW,resized it and ended up with it.I dont have the Suitcases come with it.

Cyrus I knew you would like it.Actually it came to me as a gift.I saw this one in London selling around 120 GB Pound.But it had three Suitcases along with it with a"Ferrari" emblem on them,and a small booklet.I have neither of these two.

RPMPKDMFF This is what an Exoto should be.Grand.Excellent.

agspins good finding sure.we have to do a research on it.we have to test buy a lower cost something.I fear of Customs,really.To me its Camoflouged.

Thanks Planet for posting these for me.

Though not very substantial, but was playing around with my old cars sometime back.

Here are two more. The 300 SL no longer has its front wheels attached to the car!

The no longer new "New Edge" design theme. Ford Ka in the Ikon eye (The Ikon needed a wipe before the shot!
