Thank you Shashanka. I never knew to possess such a rare model. You gave me a wonderful information. A true fan indeed.

Yes it is indeed a very rare car & worth a king's ransom as they say! So you should certainly prize it above all the others!:
I am not a collector and the only model I have is of a similar vintage - a 1934 Alfa Romeo. I had written a post earlier (#12082, page 806 in this thread) about it and am attaching a couple of photos here.

Wow nice !!
That doorless frame and the spare wheel position is really unique.
And not to mention the liberal use of chrome on the left side which is standing out. Think this element is not just a current favourite among the indians

These cars are to die for. Oh My God. That Beetle and the Jaguar and the Chevy Impala. Slurp. Delicious. Keep displaying your wares, Don't stop. BTW those photos continue to be great realistic shots. Either you are lying F-L-A-T on the ground or doing the yoga handstand.

That is a Hummer H1, not H3.... couldn't stop myself from commenting. H1 used to be a model that I drool over when I was a kid.
Reference.


I must say, the pictures are awesome, you are good with the camera and the lighting.

I just spend last weekend at the Classic Grand Prix at the Nurburg circuit in Germany. Lots to be seen as usual. I came across a market stall of CMC Classic Models. Check out their website for models and prices. Quite in a legeau of their own.

https://www.cmc-modelcars.de/en/home/

I was allowed to take a few photographs. These images donít do the models must justice. Handheld, through the glass of display cabinets. But you will still get to see some very nice detail

I will let the images do the talking:

I liked the Mercedes car transporter and SL on it. I have seen it in real life not too long ago:

Was just going to comment the same. The cars and the background looks so real that I first thought damn that's a real car collection?
Simply excellent pics.

Here is my small collection, have been trying to save from the wrath of my 4 year old and his friends.

Starting with the one that ages well.
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_121657.jpg

The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_121545.jpg

The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_123044.jpg

One of my Favourite , the design never ages
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_121926.jpg

Would I be wrong to term it a comfortable supercar
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_121814.jpg

Another SuperB car
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_122415.jpg

Now entering the SUV Territory
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_122513.jpg

The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_122608.jpg

The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_122933.jpg

One of my favourite Truck
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_122129.jpg

This opens too, realized few years later.
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_123245.jpg

And now the Duster, mark the wider profile tyres, this guy also got the tyres upgraded after I upgraded the tyres in my Duster AWD to Maxxis 771 Bravo
The Scale Model Thread-psx_20180908_121450.jpg

One of the best angles of Duster.

Thank you Spinnerr. Yes indeed it is H1, successor to the original Humvee.

Oh my God!!!!! Irresistibly drool-worthy for a collector. That 'Blue Wonder' is the most unique one I have ever seen till now. Sadly, I did not find any article on Wikipedia on this. If CMC ship it form Germany, definitely I will bring it into my collection.
