@ amit V8 nice T-Birds.

Chevy 2500 is from die-cast promotions, I bought it in US last year in an auction for $20.

@flotsam: What a way to begin your Team BHP journey. I just love your collection and the detailing is lovely for 1:43. Many of the 1:43 cars which cost as much as 1:18 ones have fabulous detailing. Keep posting more pictures. They would be a great addition to this thread.

@ Cyrus that's some tight parking. Wonder how you manage to drive them out. Nice cars. BTW is that a Cadillac Escalalde at the bottom in your second pic?

Thanks for the warm welcome Dippy (and thank you, all, for appreciating my little collection).
Here is another one:
Morris Minor 1000000, Minichamps, 1:18

Bought two Merc today.

One for Dippy and other one is absolutely impulsive purchase for myself.. Both from AutoArt.

A CL- Klasse for myself and one 1995 E-Klasse E 320 for Dippy. I'm yet to open Dippy's car because it needs other type of lighting to highlight silver colour.

Used an Eveready LED torch and two acrylic sheets against black velvet ground to display CL- Klasse. I'm happy with the result, however.

Dippy's car will be shot over the weekend.

Default Some from my collection

Actually I started my collection without a definite intention of diecast collecting,mostly brought from England as just collectables or as an object for photography.
Here are some cars which I shoot in my photobooth earlier.They were in RAW format,so I have to make them JPEG images.After trial and error regarding negotiating the size of the files,I landed finally to some odd small sizes.I am posting one by one.

@Dippy: My camera is not working,I will post the new ones soon after I get my cam back.
@Mr.Rudra Sen: I have seen your earlier posts also,wounderfull photography.
This one is Porsche 997 GT2 (Norev)

@Cyrus: So you have two Nissan GTR 2009? One is Maisto 1:24 (that you have modded),but the other one?obviously it is 1:24,but I cant guess the make.I mean to say,I have seen only AutoArt 1:18 in that colour.I think this one is modded too?

@predatorwheelz: oh,still have been bad now.Anyway,I know by name a man,Mr.Bose,in Kolkata,who stocks Bburago,I have his phone number too.Is that your friend and this man same? By the way,he stocks soft toys too.

@Rudra: I have absolutely no words for your shot. First you do this brilliant photography and then explain something which goes over the head and grin. Please explain what you did for this shot

And I am really really happy that you will be the first to click my W124 E Class rather than myself. Thank you so much for sourcing this model for me. I was desperate as you could make out from the crazy phone calls I made to you

@flotsam: Thats a beautiful Morris. This is the first time I am seeing a 1:18 of the Minor. Minichamps make some fine cars.

@abhishek: Waiting for your pictures and nice shot of the GT2
