no issues buddy. Anyway if you dont mind can you please tell me how much does the shipping charges alone comes up to, to get the model down here in India for the W126?

Also i have never done this before- ordering online. Is it safe? Thanks again

Yes it is. I just used it. Also, Order a few cars in one shot. Get together with a few people and do it. That way. the shipping makes sense. Salilpawar wants a few cars too.

How would you get those? By the way I have Caterpillar Nascar 1:24 car, back in the days I got it signed by the Race car driver "Ward Burton" himself.

First one is a 1/24 1996 BMW M Roadster.
Second is a 1/18 BMW 3 Series.
Third one is an Italian steed a 1/18 Ferrari 550 Maranello

Superb pictures Cyrus!!

I know not everyone likes the colour on the W140 but somehow I prefer it to the black. The Jag is by Autoart I assume. Where do you buy your models from?

Excellent pictures, Cy.

A 5 foot 11 inch human being at 1:18 scale would have his eyes just 9.5 cm off the floor surface. So the camera's optical axis should be 9.5 cm off the floor surface to take lifelike pictures. And your friend has done that.

Artifacts like suitcases, gates and gateposts of 1:18 scale would tremendously add to the realism.
