The mustang looks like the brown/purple one in the above photo minus the skirts and different alloys . It is navy blue in color and has silver racing stripes. Looks real neat.
Are these 1:18? or are they the Kinsmart ones which come in 1:24 and 1:26?

buying them on the net and shipping them into india is quite a pain, because for one thing the cost of shipping will be almost equivalent to the cost of the model.
plus unless it is shipped by recorded mail/ bar coded mail, there is a high possibility of pilferage.

FYI, this is Phantom II chassis #188PY ex-Rajkot State. There are 16 other makers who proposed this model in various scales and materials. They sometimes appear on http://TheGhostClub.net

Default La femme fatale - Alpine Renault A110 Berlinette

Here's an French beauty from my collection. An 1969 Alpine Renault A110 Berlinette. Alpine was a French manufacturer of racing and sports cars that used rear mounted Renault engines.
The A110 Berlinette was a famous Rally car winning several events around Europe and was considered one of the strongest Rally cars of its time.
This is a 1:16 scale Bburago, highly detailed.Please see the roll cage and the detailed interior including the fire extinguisher and seat harness.
