Please ignore the red/blue sticker on the hood, those are completely removed now and next time I will hire a better camera.

The bonnet of the MG does not fit properly. Same case with my Gullwing. Looks like a common problem.
Lovely, lovely dude . Awesome, The car has come out nicely. I have one or 2 minor suggestions, like paint etc. As for the bonnet / hood issue i think it is problem on our side, I also have slight issue with Cuda that I built. I will write a PM to you, I think I know of the solution.

My Corvette 1:24
This is from Maisto IIRC.
it is not a regular scale model but an assembly kit wherein they provide the parts such as the body, glass, dashboard, wheels and a small screwdriver and we have to assemble it.

Some pics of my Ford Mustang and Corvette. True to my collection, both are Kinsmarts and 1:32 scale.

I found it on ebay (where else) and on ebay italy site (where else). I saw many generations of these 3W scooters over there. For Your Information they do not ship it to India.

It is made by Italeri, I think the same is discontinued now and this one is old stock. Any ways.

Well On their website there is an APE in 1:18 scale (the retro one, like presented to Pope) @ 20 Euros. Awesome deal but they do not ship out of Europe :(.

Italeri. 68006 - APE CALESSINO (2007) 1/18 SCALE

Default Shelby Cobra 427

Heres a 1964 Shelby Cobra 427.
This is a 1:18 by Road Signature. Its a good model with a well detailed cockpit
with even a extinguisher! In a metallic Blue with Black racing stripes typical of
the muscle Cobra !
