Would also love a Scale model of the Jag SS100 and of course the Land Rover Series 1, Series 2, Series 3 etc.
any ideas guys?
Signature Models are just ok - they arent all that great though they seem amongst the few chaps who are doing vintage vehicle scale models.
Signature it is my friend. Just today I went to Gift Centre and the SS100 is still there in all its glory. 1:43

Btw, i was filling up at the Shell petrol pump and guess what i saw. There is an F1, an Enzo and a F50 as well but they havent got them yet. So i picked up the F430, the 360 spyder and the 575 SuperAmerica. For a 100 bux each, they look pretty good. 1/34 scale, made by hotwheels.

Those arent made by Hotwheels.

Cyrus you got this at a discount from gift center right? Saw her there with the taillight missing a year ago! I already have one in black so did not bother.

By the way mine is not from the same company it is more detailed and better finished

well, I don't really have a huge collection although I'd love to have a big collection. But I'm particularly proud of a few that I have. Especially my 1:43 Bentley Arnage R. My brother used to work for bentley and while returning, he picked this up from the factory. The detailing is pretty awesome. photos don't do justice.

1400rpm, you may not have a big collection but you sure have some big names, a Bentley Arnage R and from the looks of it, probably a MiniChamps... it is an awesome car. All the best with your collection.

Well, Unless Ferrari and Shell have brought out a new range, Which they havent, and unless these are Diecast, which they are not, These are NOT Hotwheels.

Just FYI, I have all 6. Mine I believe was the first set on the Forum way back last year. Flip them over. you will see what I mean..

Default Thank you to all who understand my point

Thank you to all who understand my point

@14000rpm: Thats a wonderful model.Definitely your car needs a professional Macro lens+digital SLR+adjustable bellow system to shoot it properly.But,you have tried and performed extremely well to show us.Hats off to you.


@Cyrus: Its Hot wheels/Mattel who got the "exclusive" License from Ferrari.So,there box always contain a special 3D hologram sticker from Ferrari(on the left side back) and a number(on the right side back).
But,in case of Shell Ferrari models,first generation made my Maisto (upto 2004 probably),then Hotwheels make them (3rd quarter of the year 2004).
Here is a pic of one of my box (Ferrari 512M,2005,Hotwheels/Mattel.
Ref: Shell V-Power – Ferrari Car Collection LifeDrive

Thats a good model Cyrus

Hi Baleno Power: Christine was purchased from Welcome to chidlrentoyss.org - Search Results for "chidlrentoyss.org" and delivered to a USA address..then a buddy got it to india...these guys have some awesome stuff and comes much cheaper than in india..like the 1800 bucks maisti..cud cost you around 24 - 25 USD..which is still cheaper...and if u have somsone coming in..they can get it anytime...

The Interceptor is frm Gift Center..at kalaGhoda..South Mumbai...awesome collection he has..sadly in limited quantity....albeti..i picked us some rare 1:72 vintage beauties from him..along with a GREYHOUND bus....a year back.......

BTW which Shell Petrol Pump do u get ferrari scale models at 100 bucks???

An absolute beauty of a model 14000rpm. This has to be a Minichamps. If your brother bought it from Bentley itself, this is the dealer edition which is awesome.

I know you are using Cannon P&S.But,there are some lens attachment available to make best out of it for macro-they are like magnifying lens with attachment.Also,you can save in RAW format after tweaking your camera a little bit.Just do some net search...

He sure did buy it at the curio shop at the factory so I guess what you say could be true.

Still no SLR but more point and shoot camera tricks for my aston martin DB5 and 1st gen SLK. The DB5 has got lotsa details and its simply awesome. I can't say that much about the SLK though coz it just shouts Chinese in the finish.Nevertheless it still finds its pride of place in my showcase just coz its a merc!

14000rpm its better now shot wise.I think you will shoot more better next time as you are very flexible and took my criticism positively.
Very good collection mate.I like your Bentley 2nd 3rd 5th pic and that Merc pic with open door taken from back.nice model.
