I have been following this thread for quite some time. I have never been too keen on model cars, apart from the fact that I still like running tiny dinky cars along the stripes on the bedcover, up the pillow and zoom down again. But just following this thread has got me quite interested.
Dippy, your collection is out of this world. Another thing I must say is that Rudra and Dippy really make these models look real. Both of your photographs are inspiring.

I won't say that i remember doing this in my childhood. the only reason is that i still do it when i'm lazzzzing around on a slow day. I pick up my scale models and start plating with them. Its fun that way.

my Ferrari models are spilt 50:50 hot wheels(mattel) and bburago. The quality is better now but you dont have a choice since only mattel makes Ferraris. Kyosho makes Ferraris but just 2-3 models and they are very expensive. I have a Ferrari 308 GTB 1:18 which cost Rs. 3700/-

Kyoshos are sometimes costlier than even the Autoarts, but their quality is excellent.

But Franklin Mint have the craziest prices, their 1:24's cost as much (if not more) than the other 1:18's!!

Has anyone seen the new Mustang 1:18 in or around Delhi? Maisto has a 1:24 kit but I try and collect 1:18s.
Yat-Ming makes some 1:18s but not seen many in India. (Saw VW Nardo concept car 1:18 in Heera Panna toy shop, might still be there supercar collectors). I wanted their 1968 Mustang GT-500KR 1:18, if anyones seen let me know please. They are not as good as the others, but are cheap and they have the GT500.... so can't help it!
