Bought a Bburago 1:24 MB 300SL Gullwing (black) and a 1:24 Carera GT3 (Grey). Pics to follow soon. I bought it from Homeshop18.com and the surprising part is that I ordered for a 1:24 Gullwing and an Alpine Renault but I recieved a Porsche instead.

Interesting model. Is this the 1:12 Norscot model? I love the detailing by Norscot in all their Caterpillar models. It is amazing.

Cool Boxster there. An SUV kept in those places would give a splendid effect.

Default Range Rover 1:24

Bburago Bijoux Collection Range Rover 1:24- greeny gold-ey sort of colour and silver 5 spoke alloys.

Saw it and liked it because it seems to be of a similar colour as my Scorpio and has sort of similar alloy wheels too. Decent finish and a good looking vehicle. (have put a pic of the Scorp for comparo purposes only)

Am waiting for my wife to come back because she's apparently bought me several little Classic car Scale models on her recent travels - watch this space and I will share the pics of these as soon as she comes back!

Default Porsche 911 Carrera 4S - 1:43

Got a nice black Porsche 911 Carrera 4S in 1:43 scale just now at the local grocery shop. Maisto - nice looking example - not tacky.
Here it is.

@manish: nice engine and in 1:12 scale it must be pretty big. Norscot is good, I have a CAT service truck from Norscot posted here and love it for the detailing.

@crazybiker46: nice pics of the boxster

@shankar.balan: nice rover. How much did it cost you?

Here's a 1-24 scale Nissan V8 Titan

your Nissan pickup is very nice - especially the tyres! nice and chunky and purposeful looking!
the RR cost 600/- - it's good value at that price.
there is also a Defender in the Bijoux Series and Im trying for the last few months to track one down - so far no luck.
