@Urja - How much did you pay for the BBurago Fiat 500?. I found that in a shop in Vienna for 40 EUR ~ 2800 INR

I wish this was a Tata, but it is a Mercedes-Benz L3500 canvas truck of the Deutsche Bundesbahn, Frankfurt/M, possibly 1954. Scale 1:43, Minichamps.

Awesome truck. Minichamps are fine diecast makers and they have some amazing truck models.

Superb, superb ! Brought back a flood of memories of a time when our streets were full of TATA variants of this truck.

And 1:18 at Rs.1250(Appx).But all these Bburago models are Made in China.You probably saw Made in Italy version of that Bburago model,it is costly,but,the paint finishishing and plastic part finishing (especially metallic looking parts) have a great difference.It is may not possible to demonstrate the difference by a shot alone.practically,you have to see in your own eyes to compare.
But the smell after opening both country made Box pack is same and very specific to Bburago...I dont know why,so,there must be either the paint or glue is of same make?
