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!
The DB5 SHOULD HAVE lots of details, it is an AutoArt . Both models are nice, ofcourse detail wise the DB5 is way ahead.

Isn't it Minichamp model? I too have the same one with same colour!

Hani, here is a small gift for you.

A BMW X6 to take our friendship to new heights. I believe it's the same 1:43 scale as the rest of your collection

Wow buddy! Great collection as well as superb photography. Really admire the effort taken & the way you took those photos! . Keep it up!

Viveck all your 1:18 are very perfect & detailed. Its the GTR in 1:24 I liked the most! Regarding the Jetta with black wheel, have you re-done the paint job? If so its superb! I wish you all the very best to enrich your fleet with some real gorgeous machines!

My new addition, three different Merc models have reached the post office. I'll have to collect it Monday as I was not in town this whole day!

1,2. Thank you
3. Thanks again. I find it very difficult to capture the details on these tiny 1:87 models even with the macro mode. However I have tried it again as the first thing in the morning. Pics attached
4. My S500 and this A8 are both Maistos. However it must be noted that these are 1:26 scale. Maisto collections have bigger cars reduced in scale to fit in the same packaging as other 1:24s. Like the hummer H1 and h2 in 1:27 and H3 in 1:26.
5. I had a cannon before. Now I have a Sony H50. The reason for shifting(from a more professional brand) is because the Sony produces enhanced pictures (with exaggerated colours than real tones) that require less post processing. Weird as it sounds, my photography requirements often need a camera that can directly send the pics to print.

Thanks Hani. I too like the GTR very much. It's now the most photographed scale model in my collection. Will be posting some more pics soon.

The paint remains the same. All i have done is I have painted the wheels black and removed the chin splitter, err.....it actually fell off.

Very rarely do you get these scale models in Cochin. Previously I would look forward to buying a 1:18 whenever I visit Delhi, Mumbai and have time for shopping. Then I should have enough cash to spare and find a model taht I like too. That wasn't very often and my collection was anything but expanding.

When I switched over to 1:24, things were much easier. It costs only one third that of a 1:18 and takes up only half as much space. So I was buying like there was no tomorrow. Five models in three days. I am yet to recover from that vacuum it created in my account though.

abhishek_bmw , these pics are for you

Got the GTR and A8 on the treadmill for some tracking shots. Hope you like them.

The Nissan GTR 1:24. Could have added a back ground, but decided against it.

Excellent stuff Vivek. I especially like your treadmill shots. Nice idea. Next time put some white or yellow tape to get that realistic road feel.
