A McLaren SLR, a Ducati 998s and again a SLR :) scale 1/12 and 1/64

Hello modelcar collectors and diecast/toy fans :) This time I set up a SLR McLaren, a Ducati 998s bike and again a SLR McLaren, but in smaller scale. So, the scale for the "big boys" is 1/12 and yes, they are both pretty huge, and the smaller SLR belongs to 1/64 scale. This was just something I wanted to show, because I like all scales and I find it interesting to put different scale models side by side... will have to do a whole line up... one day heeeh :)

Interesting info: SLR stands for "Sport, Leicht, Rennsport" (sport, light, racing). The last of the SLR coupes rolled off the production line at the end of 2007 and the roadster version is due to be discontinued in 2009. Ahh, to bad... but this is how it is, life, production, everything goes on -> so does this BLOG :)

Take care
