Diecast, fantastic Bentley lineup. Do you have any Rolls Royce models? They seem to be rare. Recently, I saw a RR Phantom model by Kyosho at Automania. Wanted to have it but the steep price did not allow me to do so. The model is to be first booked and deleveries will be in July.

Some days back, I got another Rally legend in my collection, the Lancia 037 "Presentation edition" by Kyosho limited to only 1200 pieces world wide.
This car has an intricately detailed engine bay, much detailed than any of my other models.

Not all model makers make all models. For example, Auto Art does not make some models that Kyosho does or vice-a-versa. Motor Max is not that bad a model maker, except for the panel gaps that seem pronounced of some of their models. Your 1958 Corvette looks realistic more because of its colour combination and your photography.

PIMV - Did you get the white Lancia Delta Integrale or Lancia Stratos?
Thank you on correcting me about the Rolls. They have a small line-up in 1:1 scale and a smaller one in 1:18 scale!

But apparently I am selling her.

It was an impulsive buy, I need to buy the AutoArt Nissan and also have many modles in line to built.

Hey Petrol, maybe we posted at the same time and that was the reason I was unable to see your reply.
Do post some images of your white Delta Integrale.

You should not sell something that is your passion. So what if it was a mistake? We all learn from them. Only after collecting different kinds of 1:18 scale models since 1996, have I recently decided to focus more on Rally cars and SUVs, although an occasional fling does happen.

I agree but if you have to choose between the chevy and this, what will you choose.

AUTOart -.

Manish, I agree that the Nissan Skyline RS Turbo is an excellent model and that too by Auto Art but comparing it to a model that is in a different class and era and which costs just a fraction of what the Nissan costs (Rs. 8.5 - 9,000/- perhaps) is not justified. But an Auto Art model of the same or similar car (that also costs around Rs. 5500/-) may justify your need.

Amar,I will post images of my latest acquisitions when I return to Bombay (and my collection) in June.
By the way,I'd just like to clarify that the 1:18 1959 Chevrolet Corvette in Tuxedo Black by AutoArt seen in that pic was bought from Gift Centre,not Automania.These AutoArt Corvettes are fantastic little things.Highly recommended if you're a Corvette fan.
