Dippy, f1fan, ragingbull, superselect & cyrus:
Why not make a mini-meet out of it & go visit Automania together & grab a bite after?

We can discuss it in the thread below:

P.S. - Anyone coming for the Autocar Performance show tomorrow?

No one makes one. Sadly. Unless you want a very very expensive sealed Resin one.

Hello friends,

Here are photographs of our Scale 18 TATA Nano (by Norev) which we purchased recently from the TATA dealership in Mysore.

Norev has done an excellent job at replicating the original. Norev has however pushed Nano economy to further limits by offering only front doors and trunk as opening features.

We have dedicated a page on our website in tribute to the TATA Nano. Please visit : Autofest City - India's largest collection of authentic scale models

Best wishes to everyone!
Neil D'Costa

Default Mini Cooper

I only have had one scale model, a red and white Mini Cooper that I fell in love with at Carrefour when we were in Singapore. Attaching a video of me and my nephews test driving this beautiful beast!



This thread brought back memories and now am determined to resurrect my love for scale models!

Talking Nissan 370Z

For some reason I could not resist buying this Nissan 370Z on ebay. Manufacturer Maisto. Nice details for a 1:24 scale. Take a look:
