bought it from ebay. It usally ships from HK. You can get them in many colors but shipping cost is a bummer since they all ship from HK.

Smallest addition to my small collection. They are 5 Minis - 1:72 scale. I was never a fan of dinky cars still I had over 200 of them. After starting 1:18 scale i never bought any other scale. But I was amazed to see this 1:72 scale. And now im thinking along with 1:18s I shall build small 1:72s collection too. Here are few pics. Cars are clicked by my trusty N82.

Default RR Phantom II

Here's one more interesting model. Its a Maharaja of Rajkot 1934 Rolls Royce Phantom II Special body by Thrupp & Maberly. Its a plastic kit I had assembled a couple of years back.

There are no online stores for Scale models for india. I Seriously think ModelArt should start selling them online from their website.

..:: Modelartindia.com ::..

Cyrus, They do sell them somewhat online. I did get quite a few. One has to send them a mail giving details of the models you want and money has to be remitted either by draft or to their account. They send the models by courier (courier charges to be paid of course.

But there is no one who delivers on delivery. I want the 350 from them. At least it is not expensive. 1200 bucks!
