Spot on! I am amazed you remember that.

BTW I love your new slogan 'Eleven Hundred Cubic Centimetres Of Passion.'

The GTR looks nice. What make, and scale?
IIRC, i dont remember seeing any GTRs in 1:18 and similar in black. White, silver and reds are the only ones i've seen.

I have my eye on the Phantom from Exoto too, however Exoto is known for delayed releases

Those are the only 2 stores that Exoto has in Dubai. I prefer the Dubai Mall store, as the displays are much better and more inviting although the Ibn Battuta shop seems bigger... The Exoto factory however is in Sharjah.

thanks for that.
now at the factory in Sharjah do they have an outlet??
it would be nice, wouldn't it, if one were able to get these lovely scale models at lesser prices from the factory gate!
