And here are some pics of the 1:24 1921 Rolls Royce made of copper, as the real car is.
This is from Franklin Mint.
The Copper Roller is absolutely deliciously superb.
What a car!

Thank you for your kind words, Mr Narayan and Shankar! Glad you both liked it.
Mr. Narayan, one of the shops was in the alley beside Bahri and Sons. The other which no longer exists was in the corner Next to Archies Gallery. In Janpath, it was near the circular book store.

Here is a 1924 Hispano Suiza H6C Tulipwood Torpedo. Hope you both like it! the scale is 1:24 from Franklin Mint and is made in wood.

Default Kinsmart

For me personally (even though I collect smaller scales), Kinsmart gives best bang for the buck. For Rs 250-350 one gets pretty accurately detailed models with :
1) Rubber tyres
2) Separate plastic lenses for head and tail lights
3) Opening doors
4) Good selection of colours (I have collected 4 colour variations of 2 models )
5) Good variety of models

Only thing I hate is that all models being pull back, some need to be given unrealistic plastic suitcases (to hide the pull back motor) - which feels out of place in a sports car

"BMW R 1200 GS"

Hi,
since a while I had been reading about motorcycles, adventure bikes, and BMW R1200GS is a bike which can leave a deep impression on anyone's mind, same here!
Moreover, I did see this bike in real, couple of them, and "boy-o-boy, watta machine it is" !
Few weeks back I ordered this scale model from HobbyToys @ Rs.600.
