Which models are you talking about? I am pointing to the 2006 - 2007 batch mainly.

Anybody has a idea that whether Maisto dealers have brought the gallardo superleggera to India or not because as far as I know audi r8,bmw m6 and gallardo superleggera are all maisto's latest and since the r8 and m6 hav already reached the market.Therefore,im guessing that superleggera might hav also been imported..Please can anyone confirm this..I desperately want that particular model.

Hello People,

Could someone explain to me how I could post pictures? I would like to post pictures of some of the kits I have built.

I am sure a lot of newbies are the same questions but a half hour worth of searching has thrown up nothing

Cheers

I have not seen the SuperLeggera anywhere in Mumbai. I dont think Maisto has imported it yet though. R8 and M6 are in plenty though I have seen the R8 only in silver.

A friend of mine just bought the Superlegerra in the US. He says it is worth a buy.

what an absolutely lovely looking jeep!

I ve got a similar one but its more of a toy with Beetle Bailey Driving, Sarge sitting in the front seat and Sarge's Dog sitting in the back seat.
Same old US Army Willys in dark Olive green.
The detail on that toy is pretty authentic though
cheers

Thanks for the help Cyrus

Well, here are some pictures of my Alfa Romeo 8C 2300. It is a 1:32 Airfix kit. The box says this particular car was owned by Mike Hawthorn, the racing driver. Hope you guys like it
