Lovely Miura there Shankar,
I have still not made it to Sapphire toys yet and neither have I ordered from the distributor.
As a matter of fact, received strict orders from wifey to not buy any more cars for another month.(As you know I just bought 4)

So counting my days.


@Maverick - That is one hell of a showcase!! Nice lighting as well.

And finally, why is your steering wheel resting on the front seat when the hole through which it should have passed remains vacant?
@ Siddvi & Vivek : Thanks for the compliments.

@Vivek: Nice catch, I had dismantled the car for polishing and then the forgot to fix the steering. I use the 3M liquid polish which I also use on my BIke and car. How ever I use small painting brush for applying the polish and earbuds for buffing hard to reach areas.

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.
