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!
Lovely 8C and the Stingray is a real stinger

too lazy to unscrew the car from its mounting and picturize the rear bit. yes I agree its rear three quarter view is very attractive. beautiful car. I dont mind Bburago quality - better by a million miles compared with Maisto.
but auto art is really something - I say yet again.

Yes. It is an R/C model made by MJX. It's a Ferrari licensed product. I have an F50GT of the same 1:28 scale. good thing is that it comes without an antenna. The build quality of this thing is amazing as the car can take a few hard knocks and still look clean. The yellow hook at the front bumper and the side mirros are flexible.

@AutoFeak: Nice Pajero. I have a similar one from Autoart.

@Cyrus43: Love your rally Ford. How much does it cost? SL600 convertible, that's neat.

@shankar.balan: nice additions.

@planet_rocker: nice OTR there.

Here's a 1/24 Scale - Lexus RX300 from my collection

Thanks Siddvi!
the mustang is a Maisto!
yes the finish is good. That's why bought it immediately!

Just bought a 1:24 Race Tuner Toyota Celica, Porsche 356B, Alpine Renault, Abarth 500 and a Mazda MX5. All Bburagos and courtesy Cyrus. Thanks. Also ordered a set of 1:24 or 1:43 LR Series 1, II, III from Universal Hobbies.
Still couldnt find a Ford GT, Jag E-type, AM DB5 and Race Tuner Evo in 1:24. Please help.

Photos will come very soon.

I love the American muscle cars, all of them, it represents an era of sheer size & raw power. My most recent addition of muscle would be the good ole General Lee

Any idea where did he get it from, because I have seen 1:43 Ford GTs but they're too small and the detailing also lacks and ofcourse it wont look good among all 1:24s.
