Thanks for the link Salil. What were Ixo thinking while they made the model? RPM, if you have some other 1:43s to compare, you might notice that the Amby is larger than even some of the SUV models. Didn't mean to upset you. The model is nice, but I am not thankful to Ixo for messing up a legendary car, (atleast for Indians.)

I have a few 1:43s but not check them against the Amby yet, while I do look for authentic details, I felt I had to forego a bit on this particular model, since I am unaware of anyother Hindustan Ambassador models in diecast. As I mention in an earlier post, the only other Amby models on the market are plastic. Maybe IXO needs to market the Amby as a Diecast model sans the scale, anyways I am just glad that I have atleast one 'Diecast' model of the beloved Ambassador. Regardless of what scale it is.

RPMPKDMFF congrats on the Amby. I love the amby so much that I would buy this one model even though its 1:43 though I strictly collect only 1:18s. (blackadder is probably muttering under his breath). I dont think IXO got official drawings from HM for this car. So they might have found This particular Amby somewhere in India or even in Europe as someone might have imported it there for novelty and modelled the scale model based on that. Thats the only thing that would explain this being pot pourri of Ambys. But I reiterate RPMPKDMFF (dude you need a shorter nick) enjoy the car and its a great buy.

Thanks BEEM3R, am more than happy with the Amby. As for my nick, you can call me RPM, I know there is another member with a similar connotation, but his is R.P.M. so omit the dots for me

By the way, BHPian 300 KMPH found a plastic but decently detailed scale model of the good old Tata Truck.

In my very first post, I was talking about the scale model of Tata 407 made by Funtoyz. My friend owns these two models, a Tata 407 and an Ashok Leyland Cargo. Here's a pic

Hahaha Beem3r. I am doing cart wheels with joy just imagining you paying for your first 1:43.
RPM, do enjoy the Amby like Beem3r said. I would have liked one too but it would dwarf the few 1:43s I have and hence wouldn't be able to enjoy it on its own merits. I think I am that anal about models being strict to scale.

Do one thing. Put up pictures of your 1:24 Model cars which are not that important to you. I will guide you step by step on how to mod them

Its just what you read Cyrus....atleast when it comes to diecast.
Been to Inorbit Crosswords today and they have the Audi RS4 convertible in black, Audi R8 in silver, Cadillac ElDorado in red (new color) and a BMW M6 in blue. All by Maisto in 1:18. They also had a black SLK and 997 Carrera. The SLK looked pretty nice.
The R8 is rough around the edges and is a step down for Maisto. So also the RS4. The M6 needs bigger wheels and lower profile tires. The kidney grill is wonky in the one example I happened to hold. The engine in the 997 is the pits. Never seen a worser engine. The body is nice though and I hope Maisto can make the 997 Turbo in coupe form soon.

Forgot to add that Lifestyle Inorbit is offering a 40% off on their Burago 1:24 models. Some nice cars out there too, Alfa Romeo 156s in various police versions, a white Countach, some Murcielagos, Range Rovers (again in police colors), Fiat Puntos...some more which I cannot remember now. I think the models now cost around 300 bucks with the discount.
