Hey Shankar, nice to see you back.
I'm sorry to repeat a picture on this thread, but here are Fiat 1100s I got from Automania. 1:43, beautifully made. You probably missed this post of mine.

Can't agree more. None looked scaled. But then one does not know what one might chance upon, so the trick is to keep on looking.

This car is fantastic, infact had a chance to drive one BMW 2002 (Same body style, different powertrain) in 2007 and the whole feeling of driving such a wonderful machine was incomparable. It was purely mechanical but still connected to you, very little body roll and precise steering.

thanks Amar and Super.
Those cars, Super, are really nice. I like their little white wall tyres!! And I love that Fiat hatch back version - so common at one time in the 1970's!!!
trouble is I dont visit Bombay much anymore.
Can you guys tell me where this Automania is? and I can ask a friend to pick them up for me. Please PM if possible. And does Automania have any Heralds?
Thanks

Hi Ravi,

Very good photography. Which camera do you use?

Hey Amar, thanks a ton man !
But I'm no photographer !! I use a simple point and shoot instrument - the good ol' Fuji Finepix automatic camera

If the pics still come out good, I'm happy !

@Shankar: I've sent you a PM on the Fiats. Btw, some years back I'd picked up a nice Standard Herald Mk-1 (Triumph Herald, actually) in 1:43, made by Corgi of UK.
Besides that, I also have a 1:43 Standard Herald Mk-2 (Triumph Vitesse, actually) made in India, by Dinky Toys India. That's from my childhood, so the model itself is a classic now !!
Will try to post some pics soon.

Its a very nice model. Nice detailing also, considering its a Welly.
Only disappointment is the RVM's are missing.

^^ @Eagle_f1, Thank you.
But i think the original 1971 Miura didn't have an ORVM as well.
Did an image search now and found this picture. So, guess Welly were right in excluding it!

Lovely Miura Autofreak . Where did you buy it from? The detailing on this is quite good. I saw a Bburago Miura the other day and it was absolute rubbish. Would have bought it if the quality was good. Need to look for a Welly now.

Thanks a lot Dippy!
Yes the detailing on this one is good but i wish the rear engine bay opened up as well.
Only the small hatch (boot lid) opens up.

I got it from www.DreamCarModels.com

Yes Super
I contacted that chap. In fact he just rang me a few minutes ago.
Said he would send me a catalogue and price list etc and I can do the transaction via his bank account.
thanks & cheers
