These are cheap viable options to start with model appreciation

You can give him my reference - it won't help you with getting a better rate mind you :-(

Your photography is really good. Congratulations on all those wheels.
Thank you, Narayan sir.
Which Rolls Royce do you have?

It's nice. How is your Tomica collection, Majumdarda?

Sadly, most of my toys have gotten misplaced, so I'm putting up photos of those that still remain, albeit in a poor condition.

Well worn dinky cars are the mark of a passionate collector. Preserve them. One day you'll look back on them with nostalgia. See my post number 12,182 on page 813

Gorgeous Rolls Royces! Do you have a special display case for your cars? It must be quite a view.

I went through your post, and I had that same dinky red double decker! Don't know where it is now, though.
It's great to see that you still have the toys that you had collected in your childhood. Quite a rare thing in today's world where people throw away old stuff to avoid "clutter" or be a "minimalist"!

Hi, thanks for the corrections! Most of my Hotwheels cars have the model number and year stamped below them, but these two didn't, so I didn't know :(


This reminds of an incident. This one day when I was out shopping with my parents, my dad had bought me a lovely gray Mercedes C63AMG by Mattel, so that I didn't get restless while they went about their work. This was back in 2009, when I was in class 5. I took it to school the next day, and mistakenly left it behind. Unfortunately, that was also the last day before the summer vacations started. When I realized I had left it behind at school, I was really upset, but I also had some hope that I'd find it once school reopened after the month-long vacations. After all, it was in my desk, and I didn't think anyone would bother opening and checking the thousands of desks in the school.

I was in for a rude shock a month later. The school buildings had been re-painted, floor tiles had been relaid, and the furniture had been replaced. Needless to say, I never saw her again. Although I spent just about 15 hours with her before I lost her, I have vivid memories of myself admiring her beauty, marvelling at how smoothly she moved and racing her against the then champion of my garage, the Ferrari 333 SP.

My first post in this thread. Got these two Thars from m2all.com.
For me, the headlights don't work as advertised, but I am not bothered by it.

The black one is clearly the better looker of the two.

Hi guy's I just started collecting scale model car's. Right now I have just cheaper models from Kinsmart and MiniAuto brand which I think are value for money but don't have that excellent attention to detail like other cars which our collectors have on this thread.

Basically Mini Auto brand cars have better attention to detail compared to Kinsmart but the former does not have license from car's , hence they don't have proper branding.

I have done a vlog between these different brands for anyone interested to see them.

MiniAuto vs Kinsmart



Kinsmart vs Non-branded
