Guys, an old dinky car from the mid-1970s. Not quite in mint shape but could not resist sharing nevertheless with wet nostalgic eyes. Be generous with your praise. Problem with these new HD photos is that all the mess of 40+ years shows out! I bought this in December 1976 in Hazratganj, Lucknow.

Well, this one is not exactly a scale model. It is a souvenir gifted to us (Vodafone Gujarat employees) to constantly remind us our next target at Vodafone Gujarat, a ton ( 1 crore Postpaid customers). I am using this as a paperweight from last 10 years.

Hey Guys,

Recently got hooked to diecast car collection after I got an opportunity to have a look at dear friends collection. Already loving the newly found interest. Started collecting 1:24 models. If anyone of you interested in sharing few models dues to space constraint or otherwise please let me know via pm

Sharing pic of new proud acquisitions.

Delicious. Which site/shop do you order from. I visited the Select City Walk place but sadly the shop has gone out of business.

Gentlemen, most of my life I collected aircraft models starting in May 1975. Other than dinky cars as a child scale model cars they did not feature in my adult life. But some of Team BHPs fragrance has crept into me. At my age it is not often that you do something for the first time in your life. More so in my case because I don't do very much to start with. But today, literally today, I have opened my account on scale model cars. Purchased two Rolls Royces. My warm thanks to Rohan Dheman, a very fine young man, for introducing me to a reliable supplier.

Rolls Royce Phantom VI Kyosho scale 1:18

When the box arrived I was in the field. Promptly took a half day and zipped home. There are some things more important than making a living.

Brother, you have the best collection of scale model aircrafts on Team BHP and quite likely one of the 3 most prolific collections in India. Compliments to you. Your car collection is something to be proud of too. I would love to see close ups of the Antonov Mriya, the 707, DC-10, DC-8, IL-62, Osprey (I think I saw the rotors turned up) and any prop airliners. Could you post them on the Scale aircraft thread in case some birdies miss it by not visiting the scale auto thread. Many thanks.

The car collection now has four pieces. I am keen to focus on 1:24 and look for models of the 1960s and earlier. The cars are now jostling for cabinet space with the aircrafts. In aircrafts I buy or make all sizes from 1:200 to 1:48 but as cars in reality have a shorter variation on length 1:24 looks good. I wonder if 1:43 can maintain the same quality of finish and detail.
