Hi.

My friend is in Greece and I am planning to get a Remote Control car from Greece which my friend can bring.

The car is in fanatix shop in Greece.

Problem is my friend does not have enough space in his suitcase and also the package might be bigger which cannot fit in the suitcase. Weight will be more than 10 KGS.

Can you guys suggest a way he can bring the car via flight to India?

(Extra baggage allowance is 30 Euros per KG. So even if it is 10 KGs, it will be 300 EUROS! and courier is costly too).

Any suggestions?

Here is the car I am planning to get (right side pic)

Default Lamborghini Reventon

Hi guys! This is my first scale model. It's the mighty ragingbull. THE LAMBORGHINI REVENTON! It's a 1:18 Scale and it's remote controlled. I just love the detailing on the car. The alloys, discs, engine, tail-lamps are all neatly done. The paint finish is also really good.
Enjoy the pics!
Does anyone else also own this model?

Hi ,

I just started my collection yesterday . I was gifted a 1970 Barracuda Hemi by Franklin Mint Collections. I am now planning to make a small collection of 1970's muscle cars and then move onto LeMans winners from 1950 to 1975.

Any help will be deeply appreciated.

P.S: My collection would be the less popular 1:24 rather than 1:18 :(
