@Dippy -yes I typed wrongly 550M,that is 512M which for sale.Please make edit my post to correct it.Two days gone for the Bank workout,Saturday made me me too busy,Lastly today is Sunday.But "option lock kar diya" before anyone can get it other than me
Thank you very much for giving opinion for hotwheel.
@Cyrus-its a sweet car,please let us know the make.
@Dussy-Did you brought it from US or they sent you to India?
@all regular members of this thread-I have some models bought and have in London rented flat,some of them have no bills/invoice-what will be their fate at both countries' customs when I will try to bring them to kolkata?(I dont have a good experience with a simple keychain at Netaji SubhasChandra Bose Int'l Airport,Kolkata)
There are about 15 1:18 models,4 of them donot have bills.All of them have boxes.Thank you for the bubble wrapper suggession-its very good idea;and definitely if you have not said,I would do the mistake of putting them in boxes(I can understand,what is the problem with the boxes).Well,then,I will have to bring the boxes alone,in another session.
I will post the pictures of them after reaching London.(Leaving India in first week of Dec,comming back around Mid Fev).
Guys, I have officially started bringing out my scale models which were haphazardly packed and kept in the attic. Will keep posting regularly now.
While on classic Ferraris, here's my 250 GTO (1962) by Burago, 1:24. Made in Italy.
Its great that you are getting your models out of the packet. This one is great. I think you have clicked this pic by keeping Ferrari on your Super Select.
Hope you will get all your Vintage Matchbox Models soon. Eagerly waiting to see all of them & also your other models.

Thanks Hrishi.. I'll try and get them out as soon as possible. BTW yes, while I was talking to you on phone this evening, I was trying to multitask - cleaned up the superselect first, then took these pictures. Here's another:
Fiat 500 1:16, by Solido. Made in France.
Cyrus43,please dont take my comment negetively.The yellow paint job is definitely awefull ,
I know that your work is not completed,I am just pointing out what seems to need your attention.
But why didnt you masked the BMW logo over Bonnet during painting?Try to mop the paint with thinner/terpentine oil-if nothing clears out,print in appropiate scale of the BMW 3D logo(like my profile picture).
What happened to her eyes?Extra pressure to take them out,or thinner made it opaque?Try Xylene to make them clear.
I want to see the best Finishing touch from you mate,like that GTR.
The current Bburagos are now made in Thailand not China. That happened after Maisto bought Bburago. There is definately a difference in the ones made in Italy and those in Thailand.
Luckily all my Bburagos especially the Ferraris are made in Italy
Thank you Dippy,for correcting me.Actually,I bought a Bburago Vintage 5 weeks ago(that is1:24;no 1:18 available for this Merc 1928),that was made in China-But,it was made in Sept 2008.So,now they make in Thailand-I have no idea whether they are good or worse than the China made.
Anyway,I am posting two pics(close up is blurred due to shake in high ISO)-it may be a offtopic-but enjoy the profile pics of SuperSelect,Dippy and me,in the background(I took the box out to check;can not controll myself to take the shots).
Yes SuperSelect,I have also noticed the quality difference in 1:64 models in India and UK.
