@flotsam: You collection is superb. I havent seen such a fantastic truck collection anywhere. Keep the pictures coming in.

@Dussey: That Karmann actually looks cute. Love the detailing on that one.

I must say the GTR is of a much better standard than other recent Maistos.

As for the photography, i havent used any filters (dont have such equipment). This was done using a P&S camera, along with an LED torch and then some surfaces for diffused lighting.

Thanks for the comments.

Here they are in more detail:

Dude, you have a good taste on trucks & your collection is mindblowing. Love to see variety of trucks. I too love trucks, as you know mine has been resticted to Mercs, but now after seeing yours I wish to expand the trucks in my fleet.

How do you buy minichamps, ebay? Or is so many collection avaialble in India?

Default Finally !!

Finally after wanting one for so long, my 1:18 Autoart W124 Mercedes Benz E Class (E320) is finally in my hands. The detailing on the car is mindblowing to say the least. Pictures should come soon.

A big big Thank You to Rudra for sourcing the car for me. Thanks again pal.

Hi Hanmust, thanks. The 1950s German trucks are really nicely designed, so I decided to look beyond Mercedes to Buessing, Magirus-Deutz, Kruepp etc. I buy my models from a shop in Singapore. They frequently have discounts, including up to 50 per cent off sticker price!
And thanks, all, for appreciating my collection (I haven't quite got the hang of multi-quoting yet).
Now here is a Schuco 1:87 scale Mercedes-Benz bus (Deutsche Bahn):

And after seeing Dussey's beautiful Karmann, I just have to post my own Karmann Cabriolet:
