Default Re: The Scale Model Thread

Recent trip to Australia resulted in a visit to one of my favourite shops in the world - Model Mania on Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Grabbed a few little fellas there.
Immediately after that, a quick trip to Dubai and a visit to the Land Rover - Jaguar Showroom to see the F Pace, resulted in the purchase of a nice Land Rover Defender Model.

1. Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spyder 1963 - the Day of the Jackal Car, but in Red and in 1:43
2. An Austin Healey 1959 in 1:43
3. A great little LR Series 1 in 1:43
4. A little Bedford Post Office and Telephones Van in 1:76
5. The LR Defender in 1:24

Nice little happy things to buy in life!

Thank you for pointing out.
The pics in the post are visible to me when I'm signed in, but I'm unable to see it (just like you) when I'm not signed in.

Rechecked the thread and realized I inserted the pics in the post the incorrect way.


Here are the pics from my garage

My tools of trade

Actually these are the only ones I had to use

To sum it all, it was an extremely satisfying experience. Started it last Sunday and worked on it only during the weekends. Yes, the finish could have been much better. But this is my first 'project'. Hopefully things will improve with time.

I had also added a 1:24 Corvette (Bburago) to my collection sometime back.

Thank you very much sir. Importing these pieces of art is main challenge as the shipping plus import duty hits. I can only wish they were available locally too. So many worthy models out there to collect and display.

True. Even I collect scale models and have always been at the receiving end when I have to deal with customs.
