Not Really. The KInsart Mustang and a few other cars have the same wheels.

Im not saying they use the same wheels for all their models. Having owned alot of their cars, i know they use different wheels. What Im trying to say is that they use the same design for multiple models.

Those are some brilliant scale models. Reminded me of my olden days & Hot-wheels. I guess i have few at my hometown but chances of going there are pretty slim lets see i would love to share those beauties. If my memory serves me well then theres a hummer, Enzo, Aston Martin & a Lambo. This may be THE reason to go to my hometown after 2 whole years.

A couple new additions to the 1:18 collection:a black Lexus LS460L(Norev) and a silver Mercedes Benz SLK55 AMG(Auto Pro Shop).The Merc comes with a Carlsson body-kit but I like it the way it is so no plans to install the kit for now.I've noticed how a lot of collectors keep track of how many scale-models they've got so I did a little counting of my own.Time for some stats(read 'shameless showing-off')-my 1:18 count touches 295 with the above mentioned SLK55 AMG being my 31st 1:18 Mercedes Benz.Cheers!

An Update on the M5. The Roll cage has been Fabricated and the Interiors complete. The First Coast of Paint and Clea was applied and then I found a small mistake so did a second Coat. Clear Pending. Assembly will be done tomorrow. Hope to get the "M" Blue-Dark Blue-Red Graphics somehow.
