    Nice model. I can't really display it with anything, but it's still neat.

    Go ahead. IXO models are relatively cheap and good quality for the price.

    They also have a vast catalogue of nice models to choose from.

    Plug your phone charger in the PC via USB?
    That's assuming it's not Apple. You'll probably have to go through Itunes to get the pic if it is

    Received the next bunch.

    Most important one for me was the Schaback made VW Passat B3. Also decided to get the IŽ 412 aswell, even though I already had a Mosckwich 412. Then I found some interesting cars, SMZ 3A and LUAZ 969.

    I also got what was supposed to be my first car, Mosckwich 407 in blue. The 407 and the 403 are a bit confusing to me. The main difference in real life was the engine, but as for the models, the difference is in the front grille. The blue model I have a picture of below says it´s a 407, but none of the 407s I have seen have had this grille, so I thought it must be a 403. Apparently I´m wrong.

    Additionally I have ordered the best(in my opinion) russian car: VAZ 2121 aka LADA Niva. As far as I know, its built on the Fiat 124, but its reworked alot to make a truly uniqe and actually decent car. These cars are still somewhat treasured around where I live.

    Lastly I made some pictures of my three Schaback models with everything opened.
