@ khanak,
can you just provide me a link for those Matchbox Classics on ebay or amazon ???
I have searched a lot on internet for buying them, but my search is totally in vain.

Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes, I finaly bought my Dream Scale Model. Yes guys the AUTOart Ford GT ( red) 1:18 is in my posation. I'm so happy.

I'm visiting China on a family vacation, and here Beijing i came across a Mall for TOYs. the Fort GT costed me about 550 RMVs (Yuan). Wanted to buy the veyron as well , but only one guy had it and was asking realy crazy price (1250 Yuans). so had to pass.

But trust me they had a lot, i wish i could buy more. but something just stopped me. I don't know why

I have quite a few, need to get them out of the attic, dust them a bit and min-cream them so they are ready for display again .
Please post your collection buddy !

Managed to find some pics I'd clicked a while ago. A mix of the old with the new. The AMX Javellin, Yellow Boss Mustang, Black 'vette, Blue Cosmobile, Red F1 Ferrari(312 TR, I think) are the Matchbox and Corgi models from the 70s. The Dino is an assembly kit. Have yet to paint and decal. The silver one behind the Dino, is the BMW turbo with Gullwing doors from Majorette.

But I am sure that you can order with a credit card.
They carry ALL sorts of models.

Hi Harit

Am new to this forum, though not new to the hobby. I collect mostly 1:18 I wish to order some models from modelcarworld. I can buy these online and get them delivered to a friend in UK.

I wanted to know how secure is this procedure? Do the models get delivered in good condition?

And how much time do they take?

Are these reliable enough to buy from?

Your response would be highly appreciated. Thanks a ton.

Must see! A must have for scale modelers - M3 Forum 2010 2009 BMW M3 2008 BMW M3 BMW E90 M3 E92

P.S. I was moving house in Dubai and finally compiled a list of my collection here by maker, model, and colour. Its a total of 153 cars. I'll put it up soon.

Thats really amazing!! His youtube page has more cars that he has done.

Our scale model modders should try something similar. Cyrus? Salilpawar?
