How about this, The red is too common. I am also thinking on matt finish. The first one coffey brown and black combo will give a more sedate looks.

@karpusv: awesome work with paper, you've crafted a sportbike with just paper.. awesome attention to detail. The lower fairing could've been reduced a bit but I guess thats the limitation with paper. Awesome work sir... get a case for it and you can preserve it for a long time.

From the look of it, i.e. the pictures are steal. The quality looks like a million dollar. And it is from Bburago.

In another news, as I got lot of difficulty while building my kit cars (or rather modifying). I bought these stuff of ebay, the same are not available in India.

Bikes are something that I cannot live without. Even after numerous falls, some near fatal accidents, I still prefer them to cars (by only a small margin). It was only due to these that I had a brief period in Auto Journalism.

I have managed to taks snaps of some of the bikes in my collection. I have bikes in three scales, 1:18 scale bikes are by Maisto collected since 1996, 1:12 scale bikes are by Maisto again and the newest entrant, Welly has bikes in 1:10 scale. I have two of these and have an appreciable amount of detail

My 1:10 scale bikes by Welly.

The quality of these is way better than Maisto's 1:12 scale bikes. Even though a bit expensive (almost Rs. 800/-), they are worth it

Woah. you really are getting serious with the mods job?
well for the LP700 a little more detailing on the headlamps would have worked wonders. but as long as this thing costs 1800 bucks as the reventon. whose going to complain? from my side i wanted them to make the LP670 too but then it would be way greedy on my part.

Checked out Frisbee in Oberon Mall Cochin. Wanted to walk out there with at least fifteen 1:24 scale cars but my dismal bank balance prevented that. Ended up settling for the following
1. Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet
2. 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX
3. Jaguar XK 120 Roadster
4. Porsche 911 Carrera

Big thanks to Naveen for telling me about that shop.

I got these models from "Time Out" , Oberon Mall. I guess this "Frisbee" is the shop above Time out ?
