100% sure - 1:43 Scale which is the scale that I am generally interested in! the 1:18 scale must be the 8 grand one.

they also have some beautiful old vintage racing BMW's, a Jag D Type and some 1960's Lancias all in 1:18 Scale and all priced at Rs 5000/- ish.

Loved it and bought it.

And then comes the little 1:43 Maroon delicious looking little Corvette Stingray by Auto Art.
Shankar, Both of the Car's are Damn good, but Sting Ray is the killer deal.

Default 1:24 Scale - 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe

@AmalTanna: Any idea as to what scale the models are. Looks like an exact detail, the best I have seen.

@crazybiker46: The Veyron is simply beautiful.

@Cyrus43: Love your Citroen Rally car. Is it 1:18 too? Any pics.

Here's a 1: 24 Scale - 1941 Chevrolet Special Deluxe from my collection.

All I can say is Wow! Those scale models you've pictured are breath-takingly lovely. All the marques depicted in the pictures are favourites of mine!
What scale are they please?

signature models that I have seen and picked up until now (1:24 scale) have cost me only Rs 595 each! Of course for 595 one doesnt get absolutely brilliant quality etc, but the cars generally look pretty good and Signature covers some of the older model cars which is why I dont mind them.
But I would really like to know which Signature models cost 2500 each please.
cheers

Welly vis-a-vis Maisto has better detailing and a better range of products. I just confirmed the welly pricing with someone and its 1.5K. so that makes it bang in the Maisto Range. BUT, nowadays after the new pricing has been introduced, Maistos have been priced at a stupidly expensive 1650 and above (except for a few)

Signatures on the other hand cost around 2500K+ so it is a completely different range altogether.

I guess it can only be 1/8 scale model from Pocher. No one else(except for this one guy who does custom scale models) had ever produced anything with so much detail. One thing to note is that these models have to be built and often take years to finish.

These are definitely a must have for any serious collector.

Didn't know that Signature made 1:24 scale models. The ones I have come across are either 1:32 or 1:18 scale.
