@ Manish,
I still haven't opened the box for making that model yet. Will start assembling it after my exam finishes on 3rd January 2011.
Which kind of glue should I use to hold the parts together ??
Will you be able to find that 1:62 Matchbox Willys Jeep of which I have posted the pics on previous page in Banglore if possible ???

That looks like a picture of the 'real' Harley Indian Launch bike! Have you got a model of this exact bike?

Default Scale 18 - TATA NANO by NOREV

Hello friends,

I am attaching here photographs of our recently acquired Scale 18 TATA Nano by Norev. The workmanship and attention to detail is outstanding. A neat replica of the spare tyre in the trunk upfront is provided. On the downside, Norev pushes the economy benchmark further by not providing opening rear doors.

Neil.

I am using Fast Bond (A cyanoacrylate Adhesive). It is really good, the glue does not hardens for few days even after opening (however shelf life is not that good over a longer period). But for 30 Bucks it is a good adhesive with the required bonding strength. Finish your model in one go and this adhesive will not disappoint you.

As for Willys Jeep I haven't seen any, I will look out for now.

@ Manish,
Thanks for the advice regarding the glue to be used.
Hope you will get that 1:62 Matchbox Willys Jeep in Banglore .
If you see this scale model of Jeep anywhere in Banglore, please buy it as one of my friend got the same from a mall in Banglore only.
(PM'ed you regarding this.)

Nice pictures of the Nano. The detailing is really good from Norev. However I noticed that they have provided a rear view mirror on the LHS which is not present on the real car

Last week found these models at a emporium in Ahmedabad, they are hand made somewhere in Rajasthan; costing around 2500 each

Fine Art Models - 2nd Edition
Solido does have some good details, it is quite good for the price. Don't expect Minichamps/AutoArt quality or the FineArt quality ;-).

The FineArt model is astounding and so is the price... but to be fair it is a highly detailed 1:8 model... I suppose it is on par with Amalgam.

The problem with solido is that they do a fantastic job with one product and a really pathetic job with another. Case in point, my Lancia Stratos!!!!
