I got that Alpine Renault 1:24 last week and put up a pic too - that was available in Madras so as soon as I saw it I bought it. It is a lovely car.
Unfortunately they didnt have many others but whatever they had, I bought.

Nopes. Nothing new from what i observed.
However, i didnt pay much attention to bigger scales as well. Was more looking at the 1:24 types.

Thumbs up My latest Mercedes additions

After a long gap I bought three new models of my favorite marque - Mercedes Benz.

1. New E-Coupe (1:43) - Before I place my order for a new E-Class, I was really confused from choosing between a Sedan & a Coupe. Then after a long time's brain storming I finally decided the Coupe considering, the better looking, exclusiveness, youthness, etc. But I'll defenetly go for the sedan on my next buy.

2. Face lifted S-Class (1:43) - I had no second thought before choosing my most favorite sedan, the best car in the world. But I had a small mind twist when it came to colour. As black is my no:1 choice for a luxury sedan, I first went for black. But later I thought having same gen S in black let me choose the only other option, that was silver.

3. R-Class (1:87) - It's the first R-Class in my fleet, but I had to restrict my pick to smaller scale due to two reasons. First, to control the weight of package to save the shipping cost. Second obivious, budget!
