And here are the favourites in my collection- Triumph Herald 1200 (red & white) & 948 (blue & white) made by Lledo Vanguard, UK....the latter was actually based on one of the 2 Herald prototypes that were taken for a Trans-african test run just before the Herald was officially launched in the UK in September 1959. Hence it has even the same regn. no. as the prototype in question.



Detailing is very good in both cars.....the bonnet & bootlid lettering however, has been etched the opposite way in case of both the cars....

Thats called a theme. It would be better to stick to a theme rather than collect something that you would really not like.

Hey Beeman.. what will cost 8k+? Bentley?
Between the Ford GT and the Lambo, go with the GT blindly. Somehow lamborghinis and ferraris though exotic cars in real life arent exotic enough at 1:18 especially the current models. If it was something older would make more sense. But the AA Ford GT is superb. Go for it.

@Blackadder: You Bad Rash ! Haha its not a Bentley. Infact I doubt anyone on this forum would be able to guess what this scale model might be!

Beeman, why do you want to spend that much on getting them from Europe when they are easily available here?
