I also chanced upon an old Premier President scale model in my collection, that requires restoration! , will put up pictures of it soon.

A Bugatti most probably, this one is from my Hot Wheels collection

Really looking forward to see the pics of the Premier President. I too have these tiny models some of them are imported ones (bought from abroad) and some hotwheels & Matchbox.

The Scuderia is a nice Metallic Red which is much shinier than the Usual Rosso Corsa

@Cyrus: Nice set of pics. Especially liked the pic of the Scud.
What is the window mechanism like in these cars?

That is unfortunate. Do share details if it becomes available.
The F430 Scuderia & the AMG are just stunning.
P.S. - Have been toying with starting a scale model collection & was wondering which is the best scale to collect (Eg. 1:18) which would also have great detailing & which are the best companies. Further, where in South Mumbai can i buy them from?

1:18 is the best scale to start a collection in. They have fantastic detailing. You could pick up models made by Autoart & Kyosho. They have awesome detailing but they come at a cost. Maistos are cheaper but hteir quality has improved over time.

Gift Centre at Fountain has a great collection. You could start of ffrom there. Lemme know if you need some company to go there sometime. I'll be glad to tag along.

No, no. What I wanted to know is how does one operate the windows in the Scuderia for example, where they are partially open. Or have they been fixed in that position by the maker?

Oh no, they have been fixed in that position by HWE. I think it gives the car a little character. makes it look a real more realistic.
