ah yes my friend that Ferrari Store in Regent Street. Difficult mouthwatering choices there when I went a month or two back. But as you say, murderously expensive indeed! that 250 Lusso is delicious indeed!


take a look at this 1957 Peugeot 403. 1:43 Scale.
Welly. Cream Shade with Convertible top.
Very nice car. Bought it more for the car model than anything else because it is quite rare.

cheers

yes you're absolutely bang on. also similar to those old Rovers of the 1950's, 1960's.
nice reassuring sort of shape I always thought. very "establishment" sort of cars these.

lovely bentley
from hamleys?
what make - I guess this must be a 1:18 given your predilection for that scale?

Shankar, nice Peugeot. Hard to believe thats in 1:43 scale.

Meanwhile, here are some pics of my Beetle Cabriolet. I would have preferred a better color, but couldnt find one in any other color. Scale is 1:24.

my little cell camera is a pretty good one - carl zeiss lens and 5MP - i guess thats why the picture looks like a larger scale than it actually is.

but your silver beetle is a nice one too - I guess a red one or blue one might have brightened it up a bit but silver is a nice shade too.

cheers

Lovely Beetle, I had the similar one in yellow by Maisto (made in Italy), very good quality (being Italian made) (apart from that made in Thiland were also having good quality).

Repainted the car Black and red, now the beetle is no more with me.
