I'll look around for the thread and maybe put in a few posts. He's done a mighty fine setup, almost all the buildings are scratch built to scale.
WOW Buddy! That's a nice set up. Please do post pics of your Dad's collection, I think there was a thread for Train scale models. Cheers!

Hello friends
Had visited mantri mall tonight. Decided to check out a baby toy shop called Beanstalk. It had lots of scale models both Bburago and Welly. I didnt get the one i wanted though there were plenty to choose from and they had kept the classic cars behind the sports cars. So kept searching for 40mins for the one i wanted but didnt get. Also an SLK 1930s roadster was available in another store but the Benz star logo was bent so decided to not buy it. It was a Maisto make but the finish was great.

Can this logo be fixed? The pointed star is bent from the stalk that attaches it to the bonnet. I really liked the model and probably will get it if it can be fixed.

Btw there is a toy store on Richmond road next to lifestyle near Garuda mall. Do they keep scale models? Has anyone been there? It seems pretty big 2 storeys of toy heaven.

Regards

Hi Dippy, I was reading the rules of posting. i am a scale model collector and also build dioramas. I have built my own website dedicated to my hobby called TINY TOWN - Home and was wondering if I can post pictures of my models from the website, or do I need to upload pictures on to team-bhp.com?

thanks

KRN, the detailing on the Pagani is awesome. How much does these high detailed models cost?

Also is your Baja 5B stock?
