@Cyrus43: Those are some beautiful cars you have there and really nice pics.
What scale and make are those? Did you just pick them up? Mind sharing the price. Thanks.

@benbsb29: Nice mods. What material did you use for the bullbar and are those alloys and rubber modded too? Looks neat.

Siddvi, the bullbars were my own creation, made of steel wire, with insulation used as a sheath. The wheels are ofcourse from another vehicle, which i bought specificaly for the wheels.

Shankar, thanks for the comments. I picked all the colors of the Scorp i could find. I sourced them directly from the Centy dealer in Bangalore located in Mamulpet. No amount of searching in Big Bazaar or any shop gave me any leads. I can give you the dealer's address if you require.

Default the newest ones in my collection!!

ok me hearties!

here is a super example of a Jet Black Glossy, mean and purposeful looking Alfa Romeo 8 C Competizione - 1:18 Scale Bburago.
Loved it and bought it.

And then comes the little 1:43 Maroon delicious looking little Corvette Stingray by Auto Art.

At this rate Im going to get beatings with a stick from the wife because while she indulges my scale model madness I shall need to go out and buy one more lovely glass fronted wardrobe to display the lot!

The 8c sure does look nice. You did not post pictures of the rear which according to me is the best bit in the car.
