[quote=zibby;1759481]New arrival to my collection Mclaren F1, one of my all time favourite supercar.

Wow man! neat grab! this is my favourite supercar. The McLaren F1 i have the F1 GTR from UT.

but i must point out one thing by looking at the pics, quality of this Maisto model is wayyy below par man. i mean, it looks all plasticky! i think they should have made these rare ones with high quality materials!

The 456 GT has been replaced by the 612 Scaglietti. I see the 612 being replaced in the near future as well now. I have both in 1:18. Will post a pic of them together.

The finish on this compare to UT is not that good. UT models are pretty expensive and hard to find. Will try to get one in the future.

@Zibby:So my confusion was valid, as vantage has no fog lamps or any vents on the lower bumper.

Default 1:43 Scale - Mercedes Benz Unimog U400

Thanks Guys.
@agspins: As Amitv8 notes, the Unimogs are easily available at most toy stores.
@zibby: Nice collection. Having been looking for an Aston Martin for my collection.

One more in the fleet for lesser loads, a 1:43 Scale - Mercedes Benz Unimog U400 from Welly

IMO the Lambo lacks detail. Maybe, because i expected a lot while the image was being loaded.

It is a 1:43. And its mainly the camera that is at fault. was very impressed otherwise. the Mercs are nothing to write home about though
