guys i tried maisto's website for the 1:24 (premium editions) ... but the links (for online shopping) doesnt have an Indian vendor. Maisto has their distributor in Bangalore (ref maisto's website) but they only take bulk orders.

@all of you - suggest me one / two online shops in India from where i can buy the scale models.

the 1:24s are available at Shoppers Stop / West Side, but they have very limited options to choose from.

i have a 2006 ford mustang (1:24) and i am looking for a Mitsubishi evo (1:24 / 18) and Nissan Skyline (code: 31325). i have placed an order with shoppers stope but they didnt bother to follow up.

i am looking forward for any kinda help. thanks in advance.

take care and drive safe.

Could you guys resize the pic to more acceptable levels, say around 60 - 70 KB. These 500 kb file sizes sap all the strength of my net connection and also eat up my monthly allocation. You could use a program called irfanview available for free at www.irfanview.com to edit your pictures.

Hi BEEM3R:

Among a bunch of commonplace 1:18 Ferraris and Jaguars,
the Raymond Loewy designed 1953 Studebaker Starliner coupe is a work of art.

Who is the manufacturer of your 1:18 scale model? Is it the Special Edition by Maisto of Thailand?

Pic is somewhat out of focus though.

Great that you stuck to the 1:18 scale format throughout without mixing scales like some others!

Hey Ram,

The Studebaker Starliner is made by Maisto, and Im really impressed with that particular model. The detailing is great for the price and has the greatest softest suspension any scale model could have. Its like how the Lincoln TownCar rides. You press the boot down and the whole car will just sit and then come up ever so slowly. I know some of the cars are commonplace but those are essentials to a great collection. 1:18 is the perfect scale according to me, others are either too big or too small. And when you see so many of them together its like a miniature world. After collecting a set number of cars I want to start sourcing more rare scale models. Glad you liked them. If you want I can send more pics of the Studebaker.

Regards
BEEM3R

Hi BEEM3R,

Yes. Do post more pics of the 1953 Studebaker Starliner coupe.
One of the cars you may like to source (if you don't have one already) is
a 1:18 scale model of the 1959 Chevrolet Impala from Yat-Ming.

(click on the pic)


A truly beautiful car, I'd mentioned it in this post:
