From 777cars.com?I once had a weired idea for set up of a Diecast showroom.I contacted with the company.If you are interested (about pics!) I can upload the dealers brochure in xls format.They make hand crafted RR.1:64 model would cost about 4500 INR(Leaking my dealers price!)-so end price may be 7K.

The problem we are facing tight now is shortage of models due to that ban on chinese toys. Hope it gets removed soon.

This is the car i was talking about. Gift Centre is quoting 42,000 INR for it.


EDIT: Upload the Bburago brochure too please. I am really interested in the Abarth 500 by Bburago.

Try keeping ypur camera at a distance of 2.5 to 3 feet from the car, which gives a good result.

This is because,people like me,who want to import them,are,actually rejected by retail person(s),for the reason,they are stating these high end pieces have very little end market crunch,they simply does not want to dump it.Their conversation statement goes like this"Oh! sir,Those Chineese Resin models?Sorry,None will buy them".I think you got your answer.
These cars has exploited the European market very well.But,as far as I know,I was the first person to contact to the company from India,directly and legally.So,that is why,you can see the end price is 42K,it should be 32-34K range if imported legally directly.Correct me if I am wrong.
Regarding Bburago catalogue,sorry,I can post it here,as it they holds copyright for that(they sells for customer)-it will be copyright violation.
You can email me to know more.

Ahhh!! I see!!! Very Interesting!!
Could you email the Bburago manual to me? I dont think that will be included as copyright infringement as it is regarded as a personal transfer.
