Thanks (again) Tom. The BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe is on my scratch list as a 1:1 (though not the updated shape), though might just prove too pricey to run/depreciate for the little use it would get.

Next up for your viewing pleasure Tom is the GT Spirit Bentley Mulsanne EWB. Ignore the slightly wonky emblem on the bonnet....I've been brave and managed to straighten it up without breaking it off since the photo's were taken!

Not my favourite subject, but a very classy colour scheme and it oozes quality.

Wow that BMW is really good looking 4-door Coupe/Sedan, especially in that blue colour :)

The quality of the model is very becoming of the Bentley badge......particularly like the two-tone paint job.

Colour is quite typical for a BMW M car.....far nicer than the matt bronze metallic of the dealer edition model I have.

I think this is a very smart looking 1:1 and the model follows that theme.

Thanks Jeff. I'm a bit of a fan of the 1:1 too.....it may be an inch I have to scratch one day.
