@Diecast: What you intend to do with the Lambo? I know that result which you have achieved with the ML is very motivating and you must be raring to do some more on the same line. But I would suggest you to use some other BBurago or Maisto for such customisation/experimantaion and spare the AA LP640, if still you are keen on Lambo get yourself a Masito one, even if you screwed up it won't be hurting much. Just my two cents.

I picked my 7th 1:18 Car scale model today, Autoart Honda S2000 in silver color.

@Mclaren: Nice picks again. The Porsche 911 Gt1 is good.
@sidindica: The 280 Cabrio is superb. What make?
@flotsam: Love the matador viking.
@Diecast: Nice job on the ML55, gels well with your AMG

Here's the little red truck from the 50s, a 1:18 - 1956 F100 Pickup from Welly.

@Diecast good work man,what was the paint used( spray can).For CF effect on Lambo, try to use Cf stickers.

@Cyrus43 is that display case for sale and what is the lighting used

@Siddvi I almost decided on getting a 1:32 of the same by New ray, but found it very
ordinary in terms of finishing and quality( what else you get for 200 bucks).This one is sweet.

No No. They havent started selling them, this is their new Display!



Also, I have managed to lay my hands on:

1. 1:18 Audi R8 White
2. 1:18 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Red with White Stripes
3. 1:18 Mercedes S55 AMG Blue
4. 1:18 BMW V12 LMR. This is a very rare car that I have managed to procure.

Pics Soon.
