Default 1:32 Scale - Peterbilt Motor Transporter

@cyrus43: You Bombay guys got it all!!! Nice pics of the Kyosho Wall.
@shankar.balan: Nice picks. Lambo at its usual AA best. Love the Corolla, nicely done for a 1:36 scale.
@diecast: The BBR SV is awesome man! What else does your friend have in the collection?

Here's one more auto hauler, a 1:32 Scale - Peterbilt Motor Transporter.

thanks Siddvi
unfortunately here in BLR, the ModelArt store which stocks Auto Art models has very few in 1:43. All the ones that I like, Ive already bought. The remaining ones arent what I want to own.
I ve asked whether he can order some more and have indeed shared the details of the cars I d like, but he doesnt seem to take it seriously enough.
Sad.

Thanks diecast. This looks much, much better. The problem with the Murcies & LP640s is that they place thick black frames around the headlights(which don't exist on the real deal) which ruin the detailing. The exhaust pipes too are badly finished.

Thanks for the pictures of the Kyoshos,Cyrus.
Unfortunately,all the Ferrari F40 Lightweights were gone by the time I could get my order in.Also the prices are playing spoilsport.You know things are bad when you've overshot your budget three cars into the list.So for know the only additions to my collection are:
1.2004 Ferrari 575 GTC (Matte Black)-Kyosho
2.Mercedes Benz CLK DTM AMG Cabriolet (Silver)-Kyosho
3.2009 Mercedes Benz E-Class (Black)-Minichamps
Looks like the Audis and Bimmers are gonna have to wait.
Oh and siddvi,love your truck collection,man.Awesome!

I know about the F40. Judging by the cars above, your budget was 20k??? That is a big haul!

Sad.
Shankar, pity that. Unless they face some serious competition with someone undercutting them or hearing customers, things won't change. That probably is a long wait for us to be heard.

@PetrolInMyVeins: Congrats on your Kyosho haul, now time for some pics.

Thanks All. Nothing new, just a truck's group shot here.
