Plastic or diecast.. It does'nt really matter as long as they look like existing cars.. I didnt know maisto had B/O cars too.. I always thought they only made scale models for the showcase..
Any place in Bangalore I can check? Modelart at Forum or something??

Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2008 and also loads of diecast.
NDTV Goodtimes happened to feature the Modelart Delhi store in their T3 gadget show just some time earlier. They also have petrol powered RC cars on sale now. Also happened to notice Porsche racecars by Autoart that were never available at their Bombay outlet.

guys,
Was waiting for a long time to get my hands on the Pajero, & saturday was the luky day when i got my car from Austin Distributors in Chowronghee. I was eagerly waiting for the moment & took it for a spin off road style in a place which was far away from my house & was called 'MY GARDEN'. here are some snaps taken by my pal which shows how powerful the pajero still is.

it was really awesome driving it off road.






it didnt had any traction control or hill descent control so i had to do everything manually.
