@Dussey: That Plymouth is beautiful. Just loved it and the black colour makes it more special.

@Cyrus: What does Rajesh currently have in stock in 1:18?

@amit V8: Nice looking Chevelle. I have the same car but in Orange. I was told the Orange is quite a rare colour to find.

autoart has raised its prices considerably. i saw a gallardo, diablo and reventon as well as an AUDI A6 and a BMW X5 and some nice Jags too yesterday. all in 1:43 scale. Luckily I have all the jags that they had available.
I wanted the reventon and the gallardo and diablo but am not keen to pay 1500 bucks each.
theres also an old Lambo Miura - in 1:18 - at around 2.5 - 3 grand I think.
Nice, but expensive.
but best i saw was the little battery powered remote helicopter at 1750/- it runs on 6 AA Cells and the heli itself runs on an internal battery which needs to be charged now and then from the remote itself.
very nice - good fun to fiddle with. but am still considering it before jumping. I guess with age comes caution, if not wisdom.

Hi Shankar... don't pay that price... look for some more place or wait a while before the price reduces, I picked up the same lil'choper for like 350 Bucks ( From China Ofcourse).. These prices will definatly go down as soon as the ban on china products is off.. I'm guessing that should be in a month or two.

Alternativly try eBay i guess they sell'em for like 999 bucks or something.

Is the 1:18 Lambo Miura AUTOart... if it is the price you are mentioning is quite a steal ( i think)

1965 Fiat 500 Berlina.

The earlier versions Nuova (1957 - 1960) and the Nuova D (1960 - 1965) both had suicide type doors (doors that are hinged to the rear end). Where as the Berlina version one featured front hinged doors.

@Ravi
Your model of the Fiat 500 seems to be either the Nuova or the Nuova D with suicide type doors
