@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.
Yes Agspins i would going to try the Stickers only .If we dont like it we can remove them can change to original.

What are the equipments required. I wanted to paint my grey !:18 Maisto jaguar S-type to black with golden wheels & muffler tip and the discs red.
I have never done it, so shall i try it on a test car (not a part of collection) or shall i straight away paint it.
Please help me.
No. You have to Dismantle every single part, and then Paint the body. If the car has scratches etc, sand it and then paint it. Also, If someone is coming to Bbay, you can send the car with them, and I will be glad to do it for you.

ohh its very simple. Especially the Maistos and the Bburagos etc. The pricier the car, the more difficult it gets. But Ive read that Kyoshos are easy.

Yes as Cyrus said we have to remove every part of car part and if possible the stickers.
But do handle the glass part what i mean to say the window plastic and ligths carefully .

I tired the spray paint which we ue for orginal car as it was easy and do not require any gloss for shine and we can use quickfix to fix the parts back again if they tend to be loose.

Tried project on couple of Maisto next would be Autoart Lambo but i would try Stickers which i orders and would post process and details soon.

Default 1:43 Ferrari

2 new cars have entered my collection after a long time. Both are 1:43 Hot Wheels... Got myself the 328 GTB and the Testarossa.

Am in Chennai and looking out for the Nano, but the Tata showroom dudes seem to be duds, cause they all keep showing me the plastic model ... anyone know a place in Chennai where I could get one??

I doubt the Nano Models have left bbay yet. In fact even the bbay dealers are very selective in selling the models.
