@ Manish,
Great find, good & properly finished model.

Further the Stratos is no 302 of the only 500 builded, i got it from Lyon france from the shop

www.miniatures-lyon.com, very good shop for us enthusiasts, how ever it is very costly.

AND the model is built in China . I have checked that apart from US of A and Singapore, Price elsewere is costlier.

The 1950 Porchse 356 1:18 was available for 1500 Indian bucks in US of A, the same one costed 2000 Indian Bucks in Bangalore.

Further DO any body have any experience in scale model kits. I have 2 bought from Australia, need some guidance??

That is what Tommy Ivo said when he got back from touring his 2 engine drag racer around America, from these words was born the SHOWBOAT - a 4Engine Speedster, used as an exhibition dragster.

The van is an Alfa Romeo 500 Transporter used by Scuderia Ferrari to transport their race cars. I have posted it earlier... much earlier. This is the link - 1:43 Alfa Romeo 500 Transporter by Exoto
