Visited Model Art the Mumbai Branch yesterday. They have new stock of cars from Mattel. Initially they had told me they wouldnt stock Mattels but I guess they changed their mind. They have

1:18 F1 cars from the 2005 grid : Alonso's Rnault, Kimis Mclaren Rs. 1700/-
Schumis limited edition Ferrari F2004 999 career points Rs. 2000/-
Enzo prices slashed from the initial 3k now is Rs 2000/-
512 M and 612 Scaglietti at 1499/- each

I picked up a 612 Scaglietti will post pictures soon

The prices have been slashed by Mattel itself islero. The Enzo which costed 3000 earlier is now for 2000.

Damn I had got mine for 3000 but hey that time no one else had it . Was got for me by a private importer atleast a year before the Enzo was seen on our shelves

Thanks Dippy

I got it thru ebay.com. It is not available with any store here in mumbai (i actually tried a number of times). A friend was coming down from the US, told him to get it. Shipping it to India otherwise is bloody expensive, more than the cost of the model itself.
