How much was the Maybach for? Any reason for not picking up the 62. I saw the 62 in Mumbai for 4k and Im considering it as the next addition to my collection.

Hey Khanak... Im not a Maybach fan... love the Phantom usually hate the Maybach. But I love big scale models. When on display the size really becomes intriguing in comparison to the others. The only Maybach I like is the 57s cause in all black it doesnt look very S-Classish and the rims are fabulous even better than the Lowenharts thats available by Autoart on the Maybach 57. Also the 62 wasnt available, and usually they have those wierd color combinations. It was listed at Singapore $185 but all the models at the store were selling at a 20% discount so I got it for 148$ Singapore. ~Rs 3996.

Yea...too bad the phantom is only available in 1:43.

btw how do you store your 70 cars. are they in a cupboard or on display?

I find it tough to store 20 cars.

After this latest spree Ive run out of shelf space. I have some in boxes now and 5 are actually on a mattress on the floor for the time being. Im getting a new display cabinet made which should house most of them together. Ive had to remove books from bookshelves, and all my odds and ends from other shelves, so now its just cars on 2 out of the 4 walls in my room. But its become an addiction dont know how to stop. Maybe I should check myself into rehab!

I think Dippy has a cabinet made. Hes posted pics of it somewhere here. But I doubt if it holds all his cars. Also I was thinking of something more open such that the cars are more visible, something like individual shelves. But then again I need to keep them safe from kids who think theyre toys and dust.

Think Dippys cabinet holds about 24-26 cars if I remember right. Dust can ruin the cars. I have stains on some that have sat out cause by dust and moisture that seem permanent. No amount of wiping with water seems to remove them. Im gonna try windex or some such thing and try it. If making cabinets try and make them in a way that when its closed it seals shut keeping out dust and moisture.

My cabinet houses 24 cars . the rest are all on shelves in my room. Dust is a bad problem for cars in the open . I use a toothbrush to remove the dirt on the insides and corners. Apart from that I use something called "MIN" cream to give the cars a shine. i cant do it regularly since it s a big task. Cleaning 70 cars at one go is no joke really
