Shankar, look on the bright side.. you have the real one, so why feel let-down on the quality of the scale model?

IMO, the red one looks much better than the blue.

beautiful 500 and California

i wonder where one can get 1:43 scale models of the older Ferrari Barchetta, the Dino, the 308 and 348 GTB's and the 599 Fiorano GTB as well.

Those are truly lovely looking cars.

But atleast Im happy I got the much desired 250 GT Lusso and the 250MM 1:43's recently.

Default 1:24 Scale - Nissan Skyline GTR

@flotsam: Those 1:87 Merc vans are lovely. Would go really well with my HO scale train set diorama. Newray Trucks are 1:32 scale.

@shankar.balan: Nice Scorpio. Just mod with some pattern coloring/stickering and it will look more stunning.

@gods-envy: cute Abarth. Is the Ferrari an R/C car? What scale are these. Thanks.

@benbsb29: Nice Rubicon Jeep there. I have a similar one in 1:24 scale.

Here's a 1:24 Scale - Nissan Skyline GTR from my collection.
Fold-able ORVMs .

Hey GodsEnvy

I ve posted several pics these last few days
the pics of the new Italian 1:43 scale beauties that my wife gave me are already up and running on the thread -maybe a few pages ago but they are there! They include 2 lovely old Alfa Romeo's, 2 Ferraris, an E Type Jag and 2 Aston Martins as well.
I think it was on 30th November - see page 12 or 13 of the thread - i think it is somewhere there. Last Sunday I got a nice Alfa and a Stingray whose pics also are somewhere on the thread.

Thanks Arjun. There was one mistake in the detailing, which is not having an indicator on one side.

Meanwhile, here are the pics of my 1:35 scale Maisto - Rubicon.

Dyno for scale model cars.

I guess this should be easy to fabricate.
