Default Re: The Scale Model Thread

Was always a fan of the VW Beetle and the VW Bus (T1 & T2) so when I saw this particular model I knew I had to have it.

The model is a 1:18 scale 1962 T1 shaped in a way so it could carry a Beetle (old type with the iconic split/oval rear window) shell on its back for promotional purpose.

The original version was created by Midlands Centre, which was a famous VW dealer based out of Nottingham, UK. In 1971, they started converting Beetle models into buggies, which were sold under the brand name Beardalls.

Its a Resin model and being a Schuco has excellent fit and finish. This was produced in limited numbers with only 500 models made by Schuco.

Now for the pictures:

Sixth from the V12 collection is a GT-Spirit 1:18 scale Jaguar XJS Lynx Eventer.

In 1968, Lynx began as a repair and tuning shop specializing in Jaguar C-type and D-type racing cars. In 1972, Lynx began work on a D-type copy of its own, built from Jaguar's production E-type, and the Lynx D-type debuted in 1975. The company would go on to build C-type, XKSS, and E-type Lightweight replicas as well, but in 1980 turned part of its attention to converting Jaguar's E-type replacement, the XJS, from coupe to convertible.

These convertible conversions brought in steady work, but in the early 1980s it became apparent that Jaguar intended to launch an XJS cabriolet of its own to supplement the existing Targa-roof XJ-SC. Pondering what else could be done with the XJS, a car with which Lynx was now intimately familiar, the company decided upon a shooting brake version, which not only added (needed) cargo space, but improved leg room for rear-seat passengers, thanks to the extensive conversion process.

The original cost of the conversion in 1983 was £6,950, which was nearly 30 percent of the $36,000 sticker price of a U.S.-specification Jaguar XJS, but the cost reflected the complexity of the work required. In addition to removing and replacing the coupe’s flying buttress roof, the Eventer conversion involved pushing the back seat rearward, relocating the fuel tank, and stiffening the rear suspension due to the change in both front-to-rear weight bias and center of gravity, adding a rear liftgate -- complete with a wiper and washer -- and revising the rear seats to fold flat, creating a 6-foot-long cargo area.

A total of 67 cars were produced over the years by Lynx.

This is a Resin model and GT - Spirit made a limited batch of 999 models.

Here's to all the Schumacher fans.

This one's a 1:18 Benetton B195 from the 1995 Pacific Grand Prix (Schumi won his 2nd title at this race).

Minichamps now gives you the tobacco decals separately in the box (spares you the trouble of having to buy them separately), so finished up the tobacco decaling today.

In India you can try the following sites:

1) https://www.scalemodelcart.com/

2) https://automania.co.in/product-category/scale-models/

On Instagram you can try Car Collective Online (Kunal)

I have ordered from them in the past and no complaints till date. Good pricing and packing which is essential as these are delicate models.

For a wider range you can try https://ck-modelcars.de/en/.

But will have to incur additional cost of shipping and customs. So alternately you can chose a model you like and ask any of the Indian sellers to arrange if possible.

Thanks SnS_12, your info is useful to me as well.

I usually buy from Minichamps directly (www.minichamps.de), but yea like you mentioned there's the customs bit. Going to try and compare final prices with the sellers you've mentioned.

Have mostly bought from manufacturers directly (BBR and CMC), ck-models and ebay. Best selection on eBay, but yea same customs problem.

Feel free to PM if you need any info

The reason why I avoid ordering from abroad is the customs and the hassle of dealing with transit damage and subsequent return.

Plus, all the dealers I have listed are based in Mumbai so works better for me to collect them personally.

Also, what I have seen is that the dealers get a better price from manufacturers directly as they place bulk orders and also have access to clearance sales. Further people like Genie @Scale Model Cart or Kunal @ Car Collective Online also manage to arrange rare limited edition models which are difficult to source at a good price.

I always thought of picking models when I travel abroad. But getting more than one 1:18 scale model is a task thanks to the bulky packing and the expensive ones like FrontiArt are quite heavy as well to carry as a hand luggage.

In case you want to pick up super exclusive limited edition models then you should check out Unusual43 on Instagram. They are based out of Singapore and have some really unique models for sale. But, again the landed cost for a single model in India will be upwards of 50k.

Thank you for your kind words. Yes, its a beautiful model and I just loved the design of the 250 GT. But over the SWB Berlinetta I preferred the design of this LWB. However the SWB Berlinetta were considered one of those rare models which simultaneously did both being a road car and being a racer. Indeed it represented possibly the end of an era, of Ferraris that could be driven to the track then won with, even at high-profile events, applying little or no modification

Seeing one in real would be something else but I was fortunate enough to see its successor the legendary 250 GTO in flesh on a public road in London. With only 36 ever made and the last one selling for $70 million I am sure this was the most expensive and rare car I would have ever seen in flesh and that too not at a classic car event.

A picture of the car for your viewing pleasure

P.s - The scale model from CMR was not that expensive as its not a limited edition model and plus it had a discount on the MRP when I purchased it.

A unique, specialized and most interesting collection. You should post the rest of your scale models too.
