And how about this:
eBay India: Porsche 911 Carrera car replica with FREE Shipping (item 310117461310 end time 29-Jan-2009 09:19:44 IST)

and this

eBay India: Lamborghini Murcielago car replica with FREE Shipping (item 310117461050 end time 29-Jan-2009 09:17:43 IST)

Anyone used this vendor on eBay?

How big would these be - 5 inches in length?

Cheers

Ah! Thats a lot similar to the RR Sport which i bought. However, mine wasnt a 1:18.

Pics of the interiors, if possible? Do only the doors open, or even the hood?

The front doors, the hood and the boot can be opened. Here is a picture of the dashboard.

I found that the doors appear very tight and do not open wide enough for easy access(for the camera, that is).

What colour is your Range Rover sport and what scale? Would you mind putting the pics here, Benny?

Bburagos are more expensive than before today . Though the quality is decent, it is no where near what it was when Bburago cars were Made in Italy

Very true dippy. They are just too expensive for the kind of detail on offer. I saw a couple of 911s in a store in Cochin. Even Maistos, i feel has better quality.

As far as I know, Maisto has bought Bburago. They are now made in Thailand just like Maistos.

Color is an electric red shade.

On the hood and tailgate, it is written Range Sport instead of Range Rover. Looks good though. What scale is it? And how much did you pay for it?

Looks richer than mine in that shade of red.
