I ll have to unpack them from their boxes and/ or packs. The ferrari is in a blister pack that I dont want to tear.
However I will take more pics and post them in a day or two.
And yes, I always go for these classic type cars and preferably in 1:43 or 1:64 or 1:76 or similar. While I love 1:18's they are too bulky and will take up a lot of space in my overflowing cupboards besides being very expensive to acquire as well.

Some pics from my side after a while

The M3 lineup from E36 to F82. E30 is missing and I am desperately looking for it.

Mercedes CL Klasse. Just some very gorgeous lines and rims

And the recent addition: super limited GT sprit Porsche Cayenne GTS. Number 025/504.

Cheers

mods: please merge the last 2 posts: forgot to add these pics

Also added the 1:18 Phantom Coupe from Kyosho. The Rolls Royce Collection now includes 2 1:18 Ghost(s), 1 1:18 Phantom EWB, 1 1:18 Phantom Drophead and the 1:18 Phantom Coupe

The Phantom Coupe- will try and take a picture of all the Rolls Royce(s) together

While i do not collect Hotwheel cars at all (my entire collection of models is 1:18), this was way too tempting to let go of!

Regarding the Hot Wheels - this is a nice series, even though they cost double (Tip: can get it cheaper on First Cry). Another series I like is their Camaro Fifty series. Even though I'm not too keen to get same model in different colors - but still have bought most - colour combinations and designs are quite good.

Hi Sarthak,

I usually procure most of my mainlines from Big Bazaar. I have befriended the toys section manager and he calls me whenever a new case arrives. I go early when the crowd is less which gives me ample time to go through the boxes.

Online the options are very less as we can't order specific models. But luckily on FirstCry.com you sometimes find collections and specific mainlines. I recently ordered a 50 year Camaro 8 car set from there. They even give a 15-25% discount plus cash backs and free shipping over Rs.500/-

Even the @Home stores near me have good collection.

All the best!

Last post for me on this thread for a while

Due to storage/display and other issues, packed up my entire 1:18 collection of cars and bikes and locked them in. Have a 1:18 959 and 1:18 P1 and a couple of other Porsche on order but they would head straight to storage as well.

Your Beetle is to die for. Hold tight I may turn into a kleptomaniac.

Ha ha! Thank you Sir. Most people (the age I started collecting) had other indulgences. Thankfully this is my only indulgence and even better is the fact that the better half approves of it. I am extremely sad to seem them packed but it's only a temporary arrangement.

For those interested- there are roughly 60 1:18 model cars there!
