the 1:43 AAs were Rs. 900 (something), a couple of months back.

there is a honda s2000 and a toyota mr2 made by AA (1:18) lying at starmark, south city.

Get Kinsmart 1:36 cars. Great detailing at 1/10th of the cost of an AutoArt 1:43

Update:
Just bought a 1:27 Hummer H1 (Maisto) and 1:27 Hummer H2 (Maisto) SUV.
I'll be getting a 1:26 Hummer H3 SUT soon to complete the series.

I have a few 1:36 Kinsmarts, while they have good detailing, it isn't comparable to AutoArt's 1:43.
If on a budget, then the Kinsmarts are worth the money for sure.

auto art 1:43 costs 995 for older stocks. all new ones cost 1500.
the 1:18 cost in excess of 3000 and the new 1:18's cost 6000 odd - aston martin le mans and the like.
auto art is as subject to the vagaries of the currency fluctuations the same way most other import/ export based businesses are.
however their quality and authenticity of rendition and finesse are incredibly good and worth paying for provided you like the cars in the first place. my own hope is that they introduce a series of vintage and classic models soon in 1:43 - would be lovely to get some aston martins, alfa romeos, lancias, Jag E types, Jag SS100 etc from them.

the numbers are making me crazy - 1:10, 1:16, 1:18, 1:24, 1:27, 1:32, 1:39, 1:43...

@ Amit - please let me know whether 1:43 is smaller than 1:24 (forget the brand bro)
