Recently got the Official Tesla Roadster 1:18 Scale model from the US. Looks amazing. The paint job is top notch.
Comes with a certificate of authenticity as well.
Also got the Ford GT 2021 Special Edition 1:18 from maisto.
The Porsche Panamera 1:18 was already part of the collection.

I ain't 'fraid of no Ghost
The original Ghostbusters (I & II) were among my favourite childhood movies. I even had both those movies on VHS cassettes.

The Ectomobile, or Ecto-1 is a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Sentinel limo-style endloader combination car (ambulance conversion) used in the 1984 film Ghostbusters and other Ghostbusters fiction. The original vehicle design was the creation of Steven Dane, credited as a Hardware Consultant in the credits.

In the original movie, Stantz pays $4800 (equivalent to $11,957 in 2020) for it and claims it needs a plethora of repairs. In Stantz's own words - "it needs "suspension work and shocks, brakes, brake pads, lining, steering box, transmission, rear end... maybe new rings, also mufflers, a little wiring...."

After the necessary reconstruction, it is used to carry the Ghostbusters and their ghost-capturing equipment through New York City. Its features include a special pull-out rack utilizing the old ambulance's gurney in the rear containing the staff's proton packs. There are also various gadgets mounted on the top, whose function is never revealed in the movies

I used to collect Bus models when I was residing in the UK. I also had a collection of Minichamps Moto GP bike models including all of Valentino Rossi championship winning Aprilias, Hondas & Yamahas and a couple of Dani Pedrosa Hondas. But they were all sold at various points and what remains are a few Bus models of emotional significance and a small Hotwheels collection.

The Scale Model Thread-img_20220120_15572197901.jpeg

This is a Mercedes Citaro 'Rigid' bus model in 1:76 scale and I had boarded the actual bus on a visit to the University of Southampton. This model was a special edition.

The Scale Model Thread-img_20180627_131617561201.jpeg

This is the No.25 Mercedes Citaro 'Bendy' bus that plies between Oxford Circus and Ilford, which I used to board quite frequently, though not necessarily in the University of East London livery it is in here.

These are made by Creative Master Northcord Ltd.

Any recommendations for a scale model of the S-Cross ? Preferably the model based on current one on sale in India ?

*Maruti suzuki accessories website seems to have a die cast scale models of the Ertiga and Ignis but couldn't find other models.

When I Googled for it, found some international sites listing this. Not sure if they ship to India or how reliable they are. But below are a few examples:

Not just the morning, turns out this whole Saturday was lazy for me. I just sat at my desk playing around with my toys. Here are a coupe of more examples of today's "work":

I'm guessing these are Tomicas? I also got the Tomica F40 recently along with the Ferrari Roma, 2F2F Skyline and the Initial D Toyota AE 86
