It is just the size of my thumb. Will post more pics of it when I get time.
In fact you have to see it to admire it.

Default An American Icon.

Hi Folks,
A Classic American icon from my collection after a long time.
Here's a '57 Chevy Corvette. This is a Bburrago 1: 18.
Good detailing.

The Porsche is a 1:18 and bought it at I believe a shop called Model Art in SelectCity Walk, Saket. Before you ask - it is for 4K. Can't really afford this kind of luxury myself - as I mentioned earlier - it was a wedding present from my friends. Thank you.

Thanks Amit V8 & sinner, This was added to my collection long back, maybe around Rs 1800. its a very well built model just like the Renault Alpine I had posted around two months back. I have noticed that the Bburagos which came years back seem much better built than what we get these days.

I was gifted those by a VW head during a business meeting. He said he has a 'little something' for me when he gave it to me...and I didn't know it was this little. He knew one would be too little so he gave two.
