You don't have to buy from eBay. There are a few stores in Toronto that sell pretty decently priced 1:18s - Toronto Motorsports (that will ship your order as well) and Presitge Auto Art.

My F40 is not an Elite model, do not know whether it is a Foundation.

Your photography is excellent and brings out the best in your models which are equally super.

Default Lightning McQueen !!!

Here are 2 of my most favorite cars from my dinky car collection of 518 cars till date (& still counting... )
Lightning McQueen (1:55 - Mattel) (Limited Edition of 10,000 pieces)
# 1st pic: Lightning McQueen from movie Cars (2006)
# 2nd pic: Lightning McQueen from upcoming movie Cars 2 (2011)
Both of these have cost me a bomb considering their size, but they really do have fantastic finish & neat detailing considering their small size.
Will post the detailed pics once my exam is finished on 18th June.

You may also want to try PM HobbyCraft in Calgary - huge store with a very varied & large collection of Diecast models and kits... Domestic shipping shouldn't be too high.

Default The Autorickshaw

Bought this yesterday at New Delhi airport for Rs. 200/-. Don't know what scale but it's around 4.5" long. But it's well made and it's "Made in India" , one of the reasons I bought it. Obviously, my photographic skills can do with some improvement . Enjoy!

Umm I think my last post here was about the G55 AMG that I got. I also got a AA Lotus Elise, another Maisto Mclaren F1 and another UT Mclaren F1 LM. I haven't really bought too many cars off late - trying to stay strong.

I've been wanting to pick up the AA Zonda and the Atlantic but they're a bit pricey so I'm going to have to save up for them.


I think its a bit ridiculous to have two of the same model so I'm thinking of selling the two Mclarens.

What about you? Anything new?

Sell me one of the McLarens! What color are they BTW?? Also, Dont get the AA Atlantic. Get the CMC one. Trust me, its worth it!!

On the new front, 360 Modena, Aston DB9 Volante and Morris Minor Million! The Morris is a rare car.

I believe they're pretty much the same price. I really wouldn't mind adding a nice CMC to my collection. Have you seen it in person?

What is the Minor Million? Minichamps?

But shocked to see the price tag, it is 1.99 pounds
