Default Re: The Scale Model Thread

Hello people!

I had been planning to start collecting scale models, so I went ahead and purchased my first 1:18 scale bikes from Maisto. Here're the photos:

Ever since they've arrived, I take them out at least once everyday! Though they look pretty delicate and so I've kept them in their boxes because I'm afraid I might accidentally break them.

Thanks, Maverick5490. Yes, they are well-detailed. How I wish the Mercedes-Benz trucks were Tata truck models, though. Wonder if any model maker has a Tata truck range.

My 1:18 Hotwheels Elite Ferrari F40 Competizione LeMans #40

Got this delivered last week. Took me nearly 15 minutes to remove the plastic threads with which the hood/dickey were tied up to prevent them from popping open, Hotwheels seems to be tying them up painfully well! Shouldve used a pair of pliers instead of trying with my bare hands. Now i know..
