http://cgi.ebay.com/CMC-1-12-Mercedes-Benz-SLR-McLaren-Brand-New-In-Stock_W0QQitemZ330274667608QQcmdZViewItem?hash=ite m330274667608&_trkparms=72%3A1205|39%3A1|66%3A2|65 %3A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

It includes free shipping so I guess its a pretty good deal

The detailing on these CMC models is INSANE

Default Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster

Hi Classic Car fans !
Here's one more Classic from my collection., the Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster. The 300SL Roadster was based on the legendry W194 Sports Racer and was introduced in NewYork in '54.
This is a 1:18 Bburago.

Cyrus, the lights are OEM. They light up when you open the door/s. Some crazy music also plays along, but i ignore that.

The scale is an unconventional 1:31.

Well, the detailing is a lot better than that of an ordinary toy, and it didnt come cheap either, for a 1:31, as compared to my other acquisitions in a similar scale.

As for disconnecting the music, thats something i would be doing pretty soon.

Default Autofest City News - September 2008

Dear BHPians,

This is the concluding issue for Ford, in as much as the models at Autofest City are concerned. We already have quite a few new releases at Kevin’s Hobbies, Canada, which should be here with our next consignment around April 2009.

From the feedback we have received right through the Ford – Shelby tour, it seems that the coverage and history of the models has been quite exhaustive. Thanks for all your encouragement and appreciation – it has gone a long way to deliver better issues every time!

Here is the link to our September 2008 issue:

Best regards,
