Yes he owns a place called Hobby Planet at Dadar opposite Shivsena Bhavan. I have bought a quite a few of my models from him. He has some nice collections of toy trains. He also used to have some rare car models which he used to keep on priority for me.

Dippy, you actually purchased stuff from him?! That's strange, cause when the interviewer asked him whether he'd like to make money out of his collection, he replied saying "Will you sell your heart".

Awesome pics RPMPKDMFF.

What you got that model for 160?
I think the cost have gone too high.

I remember when I used to buy these cars.They almost costed 50 per piece.
The max I had paid was 65.
But may be it was all a looong time ago.

Unlike other Indian made cars, this is diecast and not plastic. But still the pricing is quite steep. They also make Santro Xing, Innova etc.

Some Indian Cars from my collection.

I dont know if somebody has already posted this. Couple of years back, BS Motoring featured a 1:18 Hindustan Ambassador taxi (With DL registration). It was made by some European (possibly French) scale model company. I am trying to search for it... but in vain. May be someone with a collection of BS Motoring over the years would find it.
