You can certainly my friend. All it requires is a little bit of motivation and
the ability to spot good models and buy them !

Hey I was able to locate the Jawa Bike on the Amrex website. How did you got it delivered (through internet purchase or did some one physically brought it for you). I would love to have one

This is my latest acquisition, 1 of 3126 pieces worldwide (thats what the plate said)

Mercedes Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG - Driven by Heyer

The detailing is excellent and fit and finish is also good.I wanted this one badly and am happy that I got it.

Paid ~4000 INR and bought from diecastzone and made by minichamps

Indeed a great buy artofzen, and must say a good collection in the making.
One question tough... did you get it imported to india or in the UK.

Thats nice source-I have some friends too,but customs sucked me last 3 times (I got nearly 7 models in this way,all were were sent to me as gift),that is,I had to pay some money to the delivery man,each time.I dont know the reason,why last three times fared me though the packs were marked as gift.All were sent from US.I had to pay nearly 500 bucks each time.
Unfortunately,I cant find any online shop having full catalouge of models of AA in India,nor even Maisto.Only I got a online shop selling Bburago.
But,Bburago really does not make good diecast models now as they did in the 90's,they are full of plastic parts,though it was a 1:24 model(Merc 1928,images posted few pages ago),and 1:18 version was not available,still its a visual pain.I am thinking whether I will buy a Bugatti Atantic 1928 from them?

ModelZone is a store that sells CMC, HOTWheels,Yatming, Corgi and Franklin Mint. Ask your friend where in London is he planning to visit and then look at the ModelZone webiste- Store Locator.
