Ken its a 1:18 bburago Ferrari F40. Got it like 11 years ago. Very difficult to find em cause Bburago doesnt make Ferraris anymore. Overall Ferraris are hard to find around here. got myself a 355 after 2 years of searching

damn neat collection dippy!!!!

if u dont mind, could you upload pics of the mags on the scale Gallardo, Murcielago, Diablo and Countach. Would give us an insight on the attention to detail....

Also, which RC's do you own? Does anyone in Bangalore/Mumbai race these? Would be the easiest way for me to race half the cars i want to

Question What does scaling 1: 18 means

Dothe companies gaurantee that these are high precision model of cars i.e if it is 1:18 does it mean if the dimensions are scanned and analysed will they give real dimensions of real car. Any one knows abt this stuff, Throw some light. Will be very useful.

Also dippy, where can I get precision models of stock cars like mitsuibishi lancer, ford ikon, and all..........

Yes dude they are exactly to scale . First a prototype is made and sent to the car manfacturer. Only after the car co. approves that the model comapnies go ahead with production

Unfortunately you do not get precision models of indian cars . You get the Lancer EVO however but no local cars
