I suspect that I'm not the only one here who went through a phase of buying those 1:18s... I have the same Viper and 993 for instance. Though basic, they're nice models and they spawned a complete industry of models.

Love the Volvo Amazons, still missing from my collection. At least I bought a decent 1:43 recently.

Nice to see them side by side, and when doing so I can't help thinking that I like the challenger more than camaro - I enjoy seeing some of the classic lines from the original challenger.

Results lifts the Bburago model to new heights. I love what you have done with it and it all adds up to a most significant improvement! :)

On the basics Bburago Models aren't so bad and with a little work on it you can obtain a very good result for a low budget ;)

Looks really menacing in matt black! Those Buragos started lots of collections in the 1980s...

I normally don't care for the matte black treatment but I think its looks great in this case.
