Default The latest additions of little classics

I just received some brand new little classic scale models since my wife just returned from a long overseas trip.

(Wedding Anniversary presents for me - bless her!!)

Am literally rubbing my hands in glee as I write and share this with you all!!

1. Holden FJ -1:64 Scale - Cream - Auto Art (Commemorative Edition - Racing Driver Dick Johnson's First Race)

2. Jaguar E Type Convertible - 1:43 Scale - Pale Lemon - Vanguard

3. Jaguar E Type with contrast black roof - 1:43 Scale - Dark Green - Dinky Toys

4. Ferrari - 1961 SWB - 1:43 Scale - Rossa Corsa - Ertl Scale Models

and the piece de resistance of this lot, a truly brilliant little gem -

5. Bentley Sport Le Mans 1928 - 4.5 Litre Engine - 1:43 Scale - British Racing Green - IXO Scale Models.

This jewel of a car is a 1:43 scale die-cast metal replica model of the one driven by the prominent South African Gold & Diamond Mining Millionaire - Gentleman-Racer and Sportsman Mr. Woolf Barnato, whose love for, belief in and considerable investments in the Bentley Marque, helped to change and bolster the fortunes of Mr. W.O. Bentley in the 1920's and 1930's!

Woolf Barnato was part of the wild, high living, work-hard/play hard bunch of "Bentley Boys" of the 1920's and 1930's. Mostly well to do young men of an aristocratic background who could afford to indulge their tastes for fine cars, horses, yachts and other such.

Awesome gift there. Just brilliant. You should take a picture of all your 1:43 scale model cars. I am sure its quite comprehensive now.

Oh and a Happy Anniversay

thanks bud
actually i have most of them on pic form - having made an effort to catalogue the collection.
i think by now the total must be in excess of 200 vehicles - have to check.
but this includes all sorts of scales, manufacturers and types - like I said I buy 'em only if I like the particular vehicle (s) depicted and in whichever scale - preferably smaller scale for ease of storage and ready regular viewing enjoyment.
i can say that its nice fun to be able to follow one's childhood dreams consistently as one grows through different stages of one's life! of course it helps if the better half endorses this view and indeed encourages the same!

Default ferraris and a jag

3 more bought today:

1:43 Ferrari - 250 Testa Rossa - Rossa Corsa - Bburago (Garage Set)
1:43 Ferrari - 430 Scuderia - Rossa Corsa - Bburago (Garage Set)
1:43 Jaguar XK 120 - Bright Red - some Chinese make.

The garage sets priced at Rs 250 and 399 each are good value looking at the finish of the cars.
The jag looks nice - it may not be up there in quality but its nice anyway.

Thanks pal. And i thought noone noticed it.

Siddvi, the Civic looks good, except for too much bling on the wheels.

I'd also gotten myself one of TBHP's favorite off-roader scale model - The Land Rover Defender by Welly. Although i had picked it up a long time back, posting the pics only now.

Some pics.
