Default Autofest City News - April 2009

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

The shutters roll down on our series ‘Workshop Workaholics’. Here is the link to the last issue of this series:
V8-I4 Apr 2009.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

As we were in the final stages of producing this issue, a few new models and accessories were added to City Auto Garage. In true Autofest City tradition of evolving displays, we gave the workshop a complete makeover, ground up. Uploaded to our web-album you will find is a whole new set of photographs using this link:
http://picasaweb.google.com/autofestcityindia/ValueAdditionScale18#

We also have a small side-line collection of scale-model motorcycles and bicycles. Photographing the models was long-pending and we finally did it. Please visit our web-album and check out the following three dockets that contain photographs:
Bikes – Bicycles
Bikes – Motorcycles (Part 1)
Bikes – Motorcycles (Part 2)

Best wishes and all the very best to everyone for the summer holidays!
Neil D’Costa

this similar amby used to be available at India Hobby Centre Madras and Calcutta in the 1970's notably 1974-1975.
It used to cost (then) the princely sum of Rs 10/-

The Landcruiser is fantastic Dussey. It is this and other classics like the LR Defender which I want in my collection. I'm looking for a 1:18 Defender 110. Hope I catch hold of one soon.
