Went to a store to find the MB600 Pullman but (un)fortunately wasnt available , but then experts says its cheaper elsewhere. Found a good deal on another model I had seen last time and hence bought it!!.

A 1960 LOTUS ELITE by YatMing - Road Signature collection for ~1500 INR.

I am not an expert on scale models, but I love the ones with good detailing and finish. Loved this model for just the reasons.

But did not get any certificate like the one I got from FM collection

I bought the same Lotus model yellow color for 1300 Indian bucks and the same model was available @ 2600 Indian bucks (after conversion) in lyon france .

And yes the fin ish and detaling of the Lotus is quite good.

Yes detailing was not great but on flipside you can have one at 2800 versus 8k.

@naushad - 8k was the price few months back. I think Khanak bought it for that price?
But Autoart has increased their price by 1500. So models costing 3000 are now costing whopping 4500! So im assuming the price of 600 has also gone up! If so, the price is almost same as UK then its better to buy from there.

@ Spitfire,
The detailing of Maisto was ridiculous. This has a working steering as well along with a removable spare tyre & also a soft top.

Question Pricelist sent to me by modell-lichtsysteme

I sent a personal email to modell-lichtsysteme,he sent this price list.
I can not make the sense of this pricelist.I know I am a stupid,no doubt,but the pricelist is insane man,that too excluding the price of the model,shipping cost!
So,BMW E92 will cost 17000 EUR+100$ for the model?=(17000x68.71)+(100x49)=1168070+4900=11,72,9 70 INR(without shipping)
Nearly 12 Lakh Rupees!
I think the "," are separators,not decimal,please comment.

Most of Europian languages uses "," as decimal unlike English. I am sure about French & in this case German language.

Hence it's not 17000 EUR but 170 EUR.

Many thanks for the information.It seems that you are right,also look the shipping cost at left lower area of the sheet.700 Euro is too much as a shipping cost.So,its 7 Euro.

You can get more design Display Cabinets & Glass Showcases for Trophies here.
You can get some idea from Diecast car models collectors forum - Portal Navigate to Diecast scale models>Display cases or show cases.
