They are the ones discussed earlier on this forum from Zapak Games.
The Range Rover and Mustang look real good. I was planning for the X5 but the Range Rover looks really amazing. Still to decide as might go in for one of those mini indoor helicopters due to lack of space to display any new models.

Some AutoArt 1:18s and a few others came in yesterday, just in time for Xmas. Here's a random snap, any guesses on the models in the frame?

That Bburago is a 1:24 two door Merc (is it the SEC 500?), right? I had this car many years ago but I don't have it many more. I guess that's one of the original Bburagos (Made in Italy) with brown coloured interiors and chrome gear lever.

1:18 S55 AMG -- Maisto
1:18 E320 (W124) -- AutoArt
1:18 CLS -- Maisto
1:18 G-Wagen -- AutoArt
1:24 SL 500 (Had two of these, one of them doesn't exist anymore :( )
1:32 SLK
1:32 M-Class
1:24 SEC 500 -- Bburago (Broken into many pieces :( )

and lots lots more.

I'd bought it at the Autocar Performance Show at the Mahindra 4x4 experience. Didn't see the same model in any other store. It is NOT made by Centy Toys. Detailing is great nonetheless.

Will start assembling the model as soon as the exam finishes on 10th January 2010. Will need the help of all you guys in assembling & also to source the better quality paint for the model in Mumbai. Going to be a tough but interesting challenge, as each part has been extremely delicate.
Will post the pics by tomorrow. Here is the pic of the box :
Are where you bought this kit, are these available in India. Please let me know I would like to buy few more kits.

@ Manish,
I Bought the kit from Prabhat Gift Centre, Dadar from where I & Ravi usually buy the scale models, where there is only one kit of Citroen 2CV Dolly is available.
These Italeri kits are imported in India by:
Creative Education,
84, Lavelle Road, Banglore - 560001

@ Amit & Ravi,
Me & Salil has bought Xylo scale model @ Autocar Performance Show 2009 for just Rs.50/-. Make is Excel Toys, New Delhi.

Thanks Amit and Cyrus. the hood doesn't open, and also this is a 1:32 scale Bburago.

Meanwhile, some pics of my Palio. This is a Centy make, so is plastic, not diecast.

Default latest additions just now! Christmas 2009

thanks to yajaman's post which i saw this morning I popped by at Sapphire an hour ago and picked up the new Welly's!

@Gods-Envy I am extremely sorry for the havoc caused but I just couldnt wait to buy these!

1. Ford Rally Blue 1:32 Bburago - twin to my earlier Citroen
2. Jaguar XF Silver - 1:24 - superb - WELLY
3. LandRover Defender - 1:24 White - WELLY
4. Lamborghini Miura - 1:18 Yellow - WELLY

Love the Lambo - same car I think as the one in the old Michael Caine Italian Job which gets blasted to smithereens in the tunnel. But that one was Red.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!
