@ silverado (Ashish),
This time you can not take part in this exhibition, but next time for sure I will suggest your name as well as names of other BIG DADDYS in 1:18 like Cyrus & Salil.
Do try to come for an exhibition. I will surely like to meet you there.

Some amazing detailing there. One issue with the AUTOart though- I always thought that LP550-2 came with a manual stick, but AUTOart has a paddle shift!
Nice!!! Where are the pics? Bought them from gift centre?
I'm guessing the Kyosho cost about 4000 bucks. How much did the Balboni cost? 5500?

@arvi86 & @Arkin
My camera is not working currently but will click pics from my cell and upload it soon.
I got the Kyosho as a gift, it was bought from the BMW showroom at Worli. I think its cost is around 5k there.
The AUTOart was bought from Creative directly. Yes it cost Rs.5500/-

Does anyone know of a good detailed 1:18 scale of AM DBS?

Wonderful models Mr. Shankar. I have a similar 1:18 scale model of the Mustang in "California Red", a limited edition Auto Art model.
One of your ORVMs of your Mustang seem to be missing. If found, its easy to stick it back using Feviquick or return it back to Model Art who are known to sell defective models. I speak this from personal experience.
