Thank you Stanher... the Miura is probably one of the best looking supercars ever... I'm in love with this scale model.

Hey blackadder... ill keep the models a suspense till I post them ... no I love the G500... I'll never own one in real life.. so this will have to do... the level of detailing when compared to a Maisto is mindblowing... the fire extinguisher.. the carpets.. the dials.. the spare tire cover even has the clip(immovable) at the bottom that wraps the cover.. but just the attention to detail is awesome. Think its worth every penny, you have to see it to believe it... infact if I can find it I'd gladly buy the silver G500 as well.

well thats how much auto arts and kyoshos for, you pay for the attention to detail and IMO its worth it. Id advice someone starting their collection to start with a Maisto or a Hotwheels or something which will really help them appreciate the quality of the higher end models. I guess it would seem really expensive to someone who doesnt collect the models but when you start collecting you dont mindpaying the extra.

@benbsb29 What company is that Evo? Don't mean to be rude, but those headlights look out of proportion.

Beemer, why I asked the price of the G500 is because the AA Range Rover and Pajero both retail for Rs 1975. So its surprising to me to see the G500 at 3.5K. All 3 basically have the same amount of detail.

WOW!!!
Everyone is living their dreams in small scale heheh!!!
After seeing this even I am interested in buying these 1:18 scale models..

I think I need to start collecting some money,,

By the way how much does one model cost..
I had seen a Maybach's models for somewhere around Rs.4000..
are all cars that expensive?
