I love scale models and would love to have a good collection of the same. However when it comes to shelling out the amount which equals to the price of a REAL car, i would somehow go with the real car. At the end of the day, its the engine which matters the most to me.
I dont have that kind of money at the moment. I already have a reasonable road car. Would love to go for an Alto K10 next. I dont need a bigger car in say the next ten years and I never run more than 1500 a month on average and so no need for a Diesel too. So I wont be going in for a Rs.5 lakh car anyways.
Coming spot on, for me the scale cars collection is a greater treasure than any value depreciating 5 lakh rupees worth of a real road car. So yes I'm in for the scale models. Not all 100 at once, but over the years. And the deterrent at the moment for me to begin is my wife.[thinking] My daughter has to grow up a little bit more so she and I can vote out my wife two to one and start to collect the scale models.
