Hello every one ,
This model of ambassador grand , had been completed by us recently(it took nearly a month more than expected to complete),unluckily it reached the owner in damaged conditions,and he was pretty upset,though we give insurance coverage for all our models ,the owner was so irritated at the state of damage that he refused to send it back to us,.....Name:  558153_157759514385907_1532803743_n.jpg

I am in the UK currently and interested in starting a scale model collection. Can anyone point me to good manufacturers / sites where I can research / buy scale models? I tried ebay and amazon and am thoroughly confused with the number of manufacturers / scales available.

If you haven't checked this out already, here is a very good discussion on the same in tbhp itself.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/everyt...st-models.html (ARTICLE: About Scale/ Diecast Models)

But it's surprising that no mention of Welly brand is present in there. Infact, they make some of the best budget models around. I suggest you go for the 1:18 scale as the availability, detailing and variety are really good, either in budget or premium makes. It would be a good idea to add a secondary scale in 1:24 or 1:32.

All the best with your collection.

My recent acquisition. Fell in love the moment I set my eyes on the shelf. Would have been happier if I could get an F3 and a Daytona 675 as well.

They look gorgeous ! Are they 1:18s or 1:12s? And could you tell me where you bought the Panigale? I've been wanting to get my hands on one, but can't find them in Chennai.

Thanks Turbo. They're all 1:12. I got the Panigale and the S1000RR from Landmark and the F4 from Reliance Timeout.

Your pic reminded me of good times. The Uno has had a special place in my heart. It was a faithful companion for all the years that we had it.

So here goes the entire collection of Scale Models.
I do have some 20-30 Hot Wheels. But I keep them away from scale models. They seem like only fancy cars to me.

Ohh and yes, I haven't yet found the Scale Model for my Chevy Beat. All efforts of mine at local stores have turned futile. The only option it seems is now to write to Chevrolet India.

Ferrari F430 - DIY.
