I don't really collect Tractors as mainstream, but I do have 2 in my collection. I have a Lamborghini R6.110 Tractor by Siku. It is 1:32 scale, good detailing.

The Pics are as follows, now need an Evo, an E-type, a GT and a Miura.

You could find one here - ttp://www.diecastmodelswholesale.com/servlet/the-5776/Jaguar-E-Type-V12/Detail

Unless you are looking for a source in India itself.

@manish : Bought it in late 2007 and IIRC I paid $20.

@AltoHoncho : Nice pics of the vintage, exotic and tuners.

not the 1:18 ones... they're too big for my cool wall, it can only accomodate 1:24 and less. I have 1:43 also a few but those are too small from the detailing perspective so I prefer only 1:24 and 1:32.
I am also looking for a 1:24 Evo (preferably VIII and above), a 1:24 Miura (which I havent come across so far), a 1:24 Ford GT (all have 1:18, nothing in 1:24).

@Shankar, Saffire Toys next life Style has quite a few scale models.
I recently picked a FIAT from there
I recommend you give them a visit. You might find a few good ones.

I ve been a regular visitor there but have only bought a few from him - mostly theyve got scale models of vehicles im not very keen on.
which FIAT did you buy?
I particularly like the 1:43 and max 1:24 scales - am not into 1:18 on account of lack of proper lockable enclosed display space - two cupboards so far and at this rate I will fill the house with cupboards containing scale models and that will be a problem!
