@manish: Lovely 1955 300 SLR. I regret not picking up one few years ago.
@dhrishikesh:If possible post your WIP pics on the RR kit. Also, your XYlo model is the first I have seen. Nice find
@flotsam: Lovely 1:43s, nice pics. Love the Citroen and the nestle truck.
@benbsb29: Where do you pick up your centy collections? The scorpio, bolero and couple others are on my to-buy list. Wish they made them out of diecast in 1:24 or 1:18 scale.
@shankar.balan: Very nice picks, love your Miura.
@Superselect: WOW!! Beautiful gangsta collection.

This is pure Gangsta! All one needs is small action figures wearing hats (a Gangsta trademark) and machine guns.

Here it is, the Corgi Classics - GM Coach Transit Bus(Limited Edition). There's no mention of the scale, since Corgi is mostly into 1:50 scale, this bus is probably of the same scale.

I got the Scorps as well as the bolero directly from the Centy local dealer for Bangalore. The other Centys i pick up during my shopping visits to the hypermarkets such as Big Bazar, Spencers, etc. Stuck with these as my budget isnt favourable to the big brands.

Like you, i too really wish the M&M models were made atleast in diecast.

@ Siddvi: nice beetle there, to give you company here is my 1951 Split Window Beetle from Maisto 1:18. Was the first model I purchased. I have couple of more beetle in diffrent sizes (old and new ones).

The steering and suspension work. The seat recline, doors, dicky and boot all open. Spent more than 2 hrs of sunday afternoon polishing the beauty.

@ Ravi: Your Gangsta cars are very nice, I like those 1:32 from signature as they have good detail for their size, I have few of those from signature. And hoping that you will love the beetle. how this color will look on our Fiat's.

@Siddvi,

What is on the bonnet of the silver beetle? Loved the old red bug more.

@Manishalive,

Nice split window beetle. The detailing is great. What polish do you use?

And finally, why is your steering wheel resting on the front seat when the hole through which it should have passed remains vacant?
