i was condemn by ppls asking: why do you like to modified these goof toys..get some kits and do it...
i have 10 kits and they cost me a bomb ( kits in malaysia r very xpensive for our living style ) that 's why i use these toys that look realistic to model them. and i am happy cause my skills are getting better

not so soon i think for more mods for this car.. 1 more month to my a level exam ...

i am on a very low budget as models /diecsat are very expensive for big scales.

yes cobalt a.k.a mister low end , :giggle
yeah, i love all my models, diecast, even these non original toys....
let's see
a 1:18 cost in malaysia is RM 120 ( average ) and the salary of an average malaysian is RM 2000. now i get those BMW for RM 5.00 each only and it's 1:18 and i spend RM 5 on a desirable spray can and RM 5 on markers and probably RM 3.00 on stickers. so one model cost me only RM 18 and below and the markers/ spray can be use many times right ? RM 3.80 equals to USd 1.00.

the bmw looks like the real thing right ?hehe..

:woohoo :eek:k :gathering
