sorry you are right- 1:32 is what signature makes and they cost 595/-
the Bijoux collection from Maisto makes 1:24 and these also cost 595/-

neither of these two brands is of as good quality as Bburago and AutoArt though, in my opinion which is why Im wondering what kind of Signature models cost 2500/- each. I havent seen any of these and would definitely like to know more.

Hi,
The SL, DB5 and Alfa are 1:8 Scale, the Bentley, SSKL and the Benz in making are 1:5 Scale. Made by the craftsmen of FineArt. And they cost a crazy amount on money, for example the Bentley Blower is available for 28lacs.

What scale are they please?
The SL and Aston DB5 are made by Diamond Cars of Germany.

bijoux collection is from bburago,i hope it's a typo from your end

i have a bijoux collection Merc 300 SL 1:24 it cost me 495

So far from my observation bburago stand out in finish when compared to Maisto

But I would really like to know which Signature models cost 2500 each please.
cheers
I'm Talking about the 1:18 in Signature. I have seen Signatures go above 3k too. Also, The 1:32 Rally collection from Bburago is 600 Bucks. And Its pretty good Detailing!!

Signature 1:24s are quite rare, they do exist though.

hey!
Sorry again - yes - high speed typing causes "thought to typing translation" errors.

yes Bijoux is by Bburago not Maisto - my apologies.

I also love the Lancia Marque - always have.

I have several of these in Scale Model form which I had picked up when I visited the Lancia Owners Club meet some time back in the UK.

Ref your NewRay Landrover Defender - it looks lovely in Silver - I also have this but in Dark Green colour. Same 1:32 scale. Lovely detailing it has!

yes Cyrus - I really like the Bburago rally collection too - I bought a Citroen a few weeks ago - very good quality. 1:32 Scale.

Will keep a look out for the other scales in Signature if I come across any.

Same here, I too didn't have a choice of color. However, this 1:24 scale Z is from Maisto.

Just bought some models today:
1. MAN 19.343 Silent by New Ray (display set with no box, so I am guessing the scale is 1:24?)
2. Mercedes-Benz L319 vans with various liveries (1:87 scale by High Speed)
3. Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans with various liveries (1:87 scale by High Speed)

Default Scorpio Scale Model

So here is a 1:32 Scorpio Scale Model from Centy Toys.
Poor quality - made of plastic
Quite a come down when compared to International Licensed Scale Models.
However, since I ve been looking for one for ages my wife saw it today and bought it.
I believe there were 2 colour choices - Red and Blue and apparently the Red looked rather tacky so Blue was picked to be added to my collection.

Here it is!
