Thanks AmitV8 and SuperSelect for looking.Actually I am hesitating for the fact that I have never purchased a Hotwheel 1:18.

No AmitV8 they are not from Kolkata.But I can give the contact details by PM if you want-there is no question of competition,I think they are from old stocks,which he could not sell-there may be more than one pieces of each

...@Dippy-I got a customers copy catalouge of Bburago models-I will post soon.
Abhishek, hotwheel models are good. I have a ferrari F1 limited edition. its pretty detailed with after race paint scheme. see this. I guess recently ferrari has only licensced hotwheels for scale models. There is no engine bay for this F1. its 1:18.

Umm Cyrus43,what the mistake you do,I dont,I always carry the Internet connection with me
I liked the way you have written.
But,if I colour my real car like this,I am sure,you naughty guys will take the picture of my car and post it on the Wacky mods thread!

By the way,did you said,you went to Bangalore to buy this car? I like your devotion!
Really Cyrus,I love this thread too much.

Is it AA ? (The front door glass is favouring AA,but the Engine is not,I cant see whether there is carpet or not).

@abhishekBMW: The pic of the Ferrari you have posted is of a Ferrari 512M not the 550M. Both are different cars. Which is the one on offer to you? HotWheels quality is decent so you can go ahead without thinking too much really. If I were you I wouldnt even post here, would buy the cars first and then post them here.
