One suggestion, if I may. You've arranged them by types of cars - sports, pickups, vans and so on.

Within that, if you go to any color selection site you may be able to rearrange them by complementary colors. I've used the one below. There are others.

It'll make each car standout. Cheers.
That is a very high compliment. Can't even think of reaching that level! Thank you for your appreciation, Hangover!

That is an interesting site. Will definitely go through the ideas. Thanks!

Since you spoke of the great man and also my workplace, here are pics of my desk and a small collection to remind me of the great man. A piligrimage to Ahmedabad is due.

A few 1:87 scale models I recently purchased on Ebay -

Model Make
Mercedes Unimog Brekina
Willys Jeep Kyosho (1:64)
Audi A4 Cabriolet, VW Beetle, Wiking
Audi A4 Avant Herpa

The accuracy and details on these models is amazing - given their small size.

Default Repairing Die Cast Model

Hey Guys. Since being into the automotive business and having love for the automotive world , I have a hobby of collecting Die Cast Model. Till now i have only like 15 cars with me. All of them are 1:18 Scale model cause that's the size i prefer. My first preference has always been Autoart as their quality and the accuracy copying the actual car is pretty good. But sadly now days they are pretty expensive. The starting price is from Rs5000.


Unfortunately due to storage problem my rare Aston Martin DB5 went into a little trouble. And all the wheels of the car have come off and i can't put it back on as they were resting on delicate plastic spoke wheels. Would really appreciate if anyone who is good at repairing Die cast model can help me out.

Apart from the Kyosho F40 LW LM Wing added last month, the following additions have been made in the last few days:

GT Spirit Porsche 911 Black Edition- 1:18 Resin
GT Spirit E92 BMW M3 4 Door- 1:18 Resin
Otto Models E36 M3- 1:18 Resin (Personal favorite since i have a E36 316i)
AutoArt Lamborghini Countach 25 Anniversary Special- 1:18

Unfortunately due to lack of space, i am constrained to keep these in the box. The picture of the countach is for representative purpose only- I have the exact same spec- just lack of time to click her.

The theme I followed before adding the F40 and Countach was modern cars only- these have been added to complete my dream collection- all Lamborghini flagships and the Ferrari Big 5.

The E36 M3, E92 M3 4 door and Porsche 911 Black Edition were brought through a wonderful chap based out of Mumbai that I met through Facebook. If the mods so permit, I will share the contact details here for the benefit of other members and collectors.

Some pictures ( my apologies for absolutely useless photos- need to find time to click some proper pics)

Planning on getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus. Used to save up my pocket money and buy scale models as often as I could and managed to fill up an old showcase with 1:24s. But now that I am finally earning, thought I should get back and up the game to good quality 1:18s. Starting by getting a Bburago LaFerrari Signature Edition as a present for myself!
Have my eyes set on the 458 Speciale Signature one for next month.
Just wanted to know what websites are good to get stuff from?
And any recommendations for makes? I am still on a budget though, so AutoArt and Kyosho are a little out of my league, for now. And I didn't quite like the finish on the regular Bburagos and Wellys as much. So any alternatives?

Got a great deal on it (28% off) on First Cry and this was the last piece they had in stock. And for some weird reason they had it listed as a Maisto. Got real lucky!

For the good kids, it starts in the childhood. For the notorious ones, dissection and detailed analysis of what's inside that tiny plastic / metal piece of a toy is very important, so it starts a bit later. But for all auto enthusiasts, collecting scale models really does start somewhere. Here are two such (too small to be called) collections, that I clicked recently.
