Ameya

Finding the MC12 will be really difficult in India and at Model Art its impossible since they house only Maisto, Autoart and Kyosho cars. The shop owner had told me they would never stock Mattel cars.

The best option would be to buy it from ebay US and have it sent down with someone coming to India . It works out to be cheaper. I do the same for getting my cars. Plus on ebay you get rare cars which you can only dream of aquiring here

Quite a few MC12s for sale on ebay... just checked after reading your post

There is international shipping from ebay but thats where it all goes wrong buddy. Sometimes the shipping charges you pay are more expensive then the car itself so thats not really a good idea. Hence having someone to buy it in the US and get it along is better

Default Ridiculous cost (maisto)

I have a collection of about fifty 1:18 scale model bikes (mostly maisto, welly and one from Discovery- The OCC Jet bike). I paid different prices for the bikes here in Saudi Arabia ranging from equivalent of Rs. 90 to Rs. 340 depending on where I purchased it, but last week I had a shock when I learnt the wholesale prices of the maisto bikes here is just the equivalent of Rs. 40. I'll post the pics of my display stand later.

Nice pics Ameya

I didnt know you had a Mclaren F1. Thats one car I wanna get.

Congo for the new Zonda you have got. Its a Solido isnt it ? Mine is a Motormax. I'll put some more pics of it soon . But I guess we need to meet up to have a comparo of the two models.
