Thanks Amit. I liked the white one more. The black roof treatment really suits the car.

the vintage car is a nice one.

Perhaps Cyrus or Sujith1100 may be able to help with the name and make?

Spitfire me old chap - add me in to the Kinsmart gang - I like them and have a couple myself - a similar T Bird and a Chevrolet too.
wondering whether I can get a nice 1967-1968 Mustang Fastback in the 1:32, 1:24 or 1:43 size.

traveloholic - looks like you've leaped onto the Scale model band-wagon with a vengeance eh?

WHOA!!! Awesome. Welcome Shankar and Salilpawar.

Now how do we get all the models from Kinsmart. I know the lucky few who got the WRC Impreza and I have been going green with Envy since.

@Ben: Get that photoshoot rolling. I will make a list of what models I have presently and try my amateur camera skills on them.

Salil was kind enough to send me the imprezza from Mumbai. However, after it had reached me, i noticed one at the Saffire Toys outlet on Richmond Road. You could try there, since they have quite a few other Kinsmarts as well.. including the VW bus.

My wife has currently infracted me for all the scale models i am buying and so there is a temporary lull.

Nope Shankar, was planning to upload them for a long time but time constraints did not allow me to do them. Now, I find some time on hand, so I unleashed my Scaled Cars onto the thread

I am trying to search for some more vintage models in Kinsmart. Hope I lay my hands on a few of them ASAP.


I have a very simple setup I use to photograph my scaled cars.

My Setup
Background: A very basic setup. Used a sheet of Black Drawing Paper and a couple of Paper Tape to stick on to the wall/sofa. The paper tape doesnot tear off the Black Drawing Paper, when removed.
Light Source: 1) Simple Table Lamp, which we use on our study table 2) LED Laptop Light for Keyboard 3) National-Panasonic Emergency Light with 2 CFL Tubes & 1 Tungsten Light 4) 21 LED's Emergency Lamp
Camera Used: Canon S3IS
Mode: Mostly Super Macro

Default Shelby

Model: Shelby 427 SC Cobra
Make: New Ray

Sorry, friends, had to buy this Shelby from NewRay as it wasn't there in our brand Kinsmart

Wish NewRay concenrtrates on the quality of tires, did not like the tires. Would have loved to see a more detailed and spiked ones.
