Hi guys, today I am sharing my newest model. It's a huge massive model. I got scared when I displayed it on my shelf. So big and so beautiful. I am pretty happy with it. And the price was too low, I couldn't believe. Was such a bargain though.

This one you can take an idea about the size.

It's a shame the most beautiful models are getting rare and hard to get them. But one by one we will afford them. Thanks guys for giving the room to share here. Bye

This giant left me gobsmacked and I still kick myself for not getting it. One of the nicest 4x4 models around. Is the winch operable on this one?

Hi

Hi winstoncds, the winch does't work unfortunately. I observated them to check if could be possible to make functional, but I decided not to touch. :dunno:

Yeah I love this model - and I'm lucky enough to have two of them. Best part is that all doors and the bonnet open. Can be tricky to find a big enough shelf for them! And they can be very expensive to buy now - so you are lucky!

Custom Diecast, Just DO IT!

Nice add, I love it!

Yeah they've become hard to find now and are expensive. I only bought mine new last year, thankfully for a good price.

I had the opportunity to get two of them, but as my display is kinda small I had to miss it :bawling: . At least I will have room for more future models. :yahoo: Regards

All we have to do is keeping searching and typing every hours to not lose the rarities. But unless we will have new released models avialable.

Keep looking that you will find it. On Europe is muh easier to get these kind of models. Hope you get yours too.

As you guys can see on this photo below, my display is a little narrow so I had to prevent the truck not to fall off my display. Sorry for the quality of photo. I took at night  :duh: For that I used a GMP set. Very helpfull.

Hi guys, I wish I could take some outdoor pics, but I live surrounded by concrete. Anyway, I snaped some new photos just to give a kind of realistic background. Hope you like it.

Hi, pleased to meet you. It's nice to see other people from the same country that share the same hobby. I'm sure you're going to get yourself an Expedition. Most models I have I bought at Mercado Livre. I'm following your Civic project, can't wait to check it all made. I'm also building a BMW 502 Maisto, soon I post some pics at here.
