Thanks koolsun. That's good news indeed! The bad news is that the Aston Martin DB9 1:18 dosen't come out before Jan. 2005.

For all the townies here, there is a model shop in Fort as well. Its right next to the Albarally's there. You can find it by looking for a few models in the showcase outside, then go in and its back in one of those buildings. They got some amazing stuff, and the owner is really nice too, if he doesn't have it, he will order it for you.

well, I dont really have an exact address, but lemme try and explain it a bit better.

The shop in between the Bata showroom and Akbarally's at Fort. It's not overlooking the road. However, if you just walk down that pavement you will come across a window with a few car models as well as some other gizmo's. That winow has an entrance next to it with some more grey market dealers selling the usual stuff. You go in there and the model shop is at the back, you can't miss it.

They also sell the Auto Art stuff like the caliper shaped clock (real cool) and other stuff you see in the auto mags.
