TAPAN AGARWAL — a class VII student of Daly College — will organise an exhibition of miniature dye cast scale models of world’s famous cars at Hotel Amar Vilas on January 6 and 7. This exhibition will be organised under the guidance of Aditya Agarwal and in association with Sanjay’s Happy World.
While speaking to media persons in the City on Friday, Tapan said that the exhibition will consist of 500 car models. Aditya Agarwal and Happy World have contributed to the collection. State Bank of Indore managing director C Narsimhan will inaugurate the exhibition.
The student said that his love for cars began at a tender age and has been learning about these vehicles through Internet, foreign trips and car showrooms. He began collecting models of cars at the age of 5 years. He informed that slides showing detailed information about different cars will be displayed in the exhibition.
Aditya Agarwal explained that type cast models are different from plastic models as they show every minute detail, including the wiring.
According to Aditya Agarwal, all models displayed in the exhibition will be licensed products. From the oldest car model shown in the first James Bond movie ‘Dr No’ to smallest and fastest cars like Buggati Veryol, BMW, Proche, Ford and Mercedes miniatures will be showcased at the show which will be open from 9.30 am to 9 pm.
