I spent the weekend at Subic with my family. Of course, I didn't let the chance of shooting with model cars get away. So I brought two models, my camera and my road diorama. I did the shoot at my favorite by-the-sea spot. Here are the results...
I got this second generation of the Gallardo Superleggera (LP570-4) from AUTOart in February of this year. As expected, it's a fantastic model replicated into a 1:18 scale car. I chose metallic green (verde ithaca) as it is the best color for me. Although it also looks quite good in metallic yellow (giallo midas) and metallic orange (arancio borealis). Here are some recent shots I took of this model. I will add more photos soon.
When AUTOart announced that they would release the Aventador in mid of 2011, Lamborghini collectors were so eager to get their hands on the model. They first showed the pre-production pictures of the orange, black & white models. I was set to get the white one until they showed pictures of the yellow Aventador. It quickly changed my choice to it especially when I saw it in silver wheels. Then suddenly, AUTOart decided to change the wheels to black and many people got really upset, I included. I patiently waited until the yellow Aventador was locally released. As soon as I got mine, the black wheels didn't look bad at all. The combination of yellow and black never fails just as seen in the Murcielago LP640 & LP670-4 SV models I also have. Here's a quick photo shoot I did of this model. I will do a better shoot with sharper image next time and probably do an outdoor shoot as well. So here are the pictures I've taken for the mean time. :)
After a long hunt, I was able to get another holy grail of mine. A Lamborghini Diablo Roadster in red by AUTOart. I have passed up on this model years ago and fortunately, a fellow collector from DIF (Diecast International Forum) let go of this one. I didn't think twice and bought it from him as soon as he posted it in the for sale section. Here are a few pictures of the model. Enjoy! :)
I've always been a fan of Lamborghini since childhood. The first time I saw the Countach, I just fell in love with the beauty of it. A timeless car. Up to this day, the Countach remains as an icon in the supercar industry. It was a design way ahead of it's time. In 1984, my Dad had bought me a 1:24 scale, Tamiya plastic model of a Lamborghini Countach LP500s. It was my very first Lamborghini model that I assembled and detailed.
