@Mclaren Roxx the BMW and the 2000 GT are AutoArt, the 308 is a hotwheels(obviously), the Mclaren is a Maisto and the Superbird is by ERTL, which ive always wanted. The latter 2 i got from the US at a gift store in a small town and i just had to buy them as they went really cheap being old models in a tatty box

Ah, thought so. Oh man, Maisto has royally screwed up the McLaren F1 Road Car. It's my all time favorite & Maisto should never have been given the rights to make it Such rare beauties are best left to the premium brands

Ah, the AM DBS. What make is it? and is it Diecast? Looks to me like a unibody plastic construction.

Great buy KRN, looks sweet

The highlight of my week was the arrival of my 1:18 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes MP4-26 F1 car by Minichamps & the Lewis Hamilton racing helmet keychain

(note: those white specks that you see on the front wing & some on the body is dust. Missed cleaning that out before clicking snaps & realized my bad only during upload. Paint quality is flawless)

Oh I see. Nice. What other models do you own?
A tip on posting, don't delete the closing tag "/QUOTE" including the "[]" when you quote someone in your reply. Else your post wont display correctly.

cheers!

That Tractor looks nice, what make is it ? Also hows it related to Indigo Airlines, having their logo & their signature paint scheme on it, just curious to know.

Thanks samsag12, I bought the model on board an Indigo Airlines flight: it is in their in-flight shop and it cost around Rs 600 (if I recall correctly). The manufacturer is not mentioned on the box, neither is the scale (it could be 1:32, I am not sure). The detailing is good enough.
