Thanks, shankar.balan. The Linea toy-models sold in Tata-Fiat dealerships are very small and do not come with mounts/glass case. Out of Euros 44.14 I paid, shipping charges amounted to Euros 18!

Cyrus, good work with the matt finish on the GTR. However, for the wheels alone, i would prefer a glossy effect.

amit, superselect, yajaman, siddvi

thanks a lot for the appreciation.

im lazy to take out the larger/ more sophisticated camera so I have been snapping all these with my little mobile camera.
however, it just goes to show the extremely decent quality of photographs one can achieve with a 5MP Nokia camera with the Carl Zeiss lens!

somehow I love the little fellows 1:43 size. storage, beauty, appeal, cute-ness, play-ability etc!

i guess i simply never grew up in that sense.

cheers

I think each of us here who collect these scale models feel the same each time we pick up these models. Imagining driving these beauties and spend hours looking at them.

That Ferrari Collection is awesome. Is there an F355 too?
