you're good..yea it is a 1:36 from kinsmart. This car is going to remain as it as right now. I like it that way. My other purchases for the day...well...cant assure anything of its "originality"

Have a look.
Though the car is a kinsmart. It has staggering detail for a 1:36

Edit-Credit goes to SALIL PAWAR a.k.a. salilpawar1 for guiding me to the place where these cars were.
sorry for the poor quality of pics. taken from my cell phone camera.

Hey, nice ones, I have never seen the Evo from Kinsmart before. I have seen the HUMMER H2, Porsche Carrera GT, Ford Mustang GT, Ford GT (happen to have all of them), also seen the Mercedes Benz CL500, Volkswagen New Beetle, Lexus SC and Scion tC. But have never come across the Evo. Looks pretty neat, and I see you have worked the wheels in the yellow one as well ... you seem to enjoy doing the mods. All the best.

Cyrus, you got to do something about those tires on the Ford GT. They look more for offroad than supercar. Not acceptable for a model in this day and age.

Do I see the 3 pointed star on the Amby? I have seen this one at Gift Centre. It seems it is only available in this color.

Infact the detailing is not that precise. The rims and the front indicators belong to Ambys of a different era.

@GTA,
both the evos share the same underbody and interiors, so you can interchange them for fun. These Kinsmart evos are a slap on the face of AutoArt and its ultraexpensive 1:43 evos.

That was standard fitment on the Amby. And they look like The Merc sign but it isnt.

@blackadder, yes that is a three pointed star, I noticed it as well, but this was the only Amby I could find around that was diecast, it is from IXO, so I had to forego on that nitty detail. On my trip to India last year, all I saw were those plastic ones.

@GTA, adder is talking about the wheelcaps.

The thing I like about this model very much is how neatly they have placed the exhaust pipe and fuel cap.

That was standard fitment? I would believe that Mercedes would sue HM if they ever used their emblem on the Amby. I always believed that those caps were an after market job.

You can get non-standard aftermarket chrome wheel caps with a three-pointed star embossed.
When the wheel spins, each of the three light-facing surfaces of the star flash a reflection,
giving a cute Mercedes-Benz star like effect.
However these hubcaps were aftermarket and seen on very few Hindustan Ambassadors. They were certainly not stock.

The tall bumper overriders came on the original Hindustan Ambassador and were replaced on the Mark II with smaller curved ones. (The Mark IV came with black rubber overriders). The ones in both models are the tall ones that strictly belong only in the black car (Ambassador 1957-1962) below.

The brown Ambassador Model is a (1975-1979) Mark III wearing a (1979-1990) Mark IV grille.
The Mark III grille was so wide that the parking lights had to be farther apart center-to-center than the headlamps.

The solid bonnet ornament in the brown model is correct for an Ambassador Mark III. It is out of place on the black car below. The old original Ambassador had a bonnet ornament that was thinner, more art-deco and had a chrome "H" in a maroon circle.

The models are therefore somehow a hotch-potch of multiple Ambassador models.

Where is the correctness, one usually finds in model brands like Franklin Mint, Brooklin models, Solido and Box.

Does anybody remember when the opposing wipers were replaced with ones that park near-parallely on the left?

Wonder how authentic the rear of the black car is. It should have round conical turn signal and tail-lights, while the brown car should have flat ones.

The dashboard of the black car should have the bulging upper surface in the center of the car. Not above the steering position. On the other hand the instrument cowl on the brown Mark III is in the right place.

What's the name of the German manufacturer of these 1:43 die-casts?
