@Zibby - some really interesting stuff you got there..
Special mention the Corgi Bond cars (u seem to be a big bond fan going by the cassettes), The Audi Quattro hillclimb, FAB1, the Merc SL box!

I also spot a few 55 Thunderbirds. Did you get the cases for the Matchbox/hotwheels special made or ??

Do you mean plastic or diecast? Maisto is the only one who come to my mind who make diecast r/c cars in 1:18 with B/O motors. They have working lights too. But the speeds are nothing to write home about.
Fuel operated r/c cars start upward of Rs. 20K and the availibility of parts is quite a headache here.

Yeaa..I went there last week.Their collection is simply mindblowing n they dont only have scale models but have different sorts of accesories too.For eg-autoart watches,keychains,small human figures to display with your car,etc.

Ohh and by the way..bought a yellow evo VII(autoart)from there only.
