@Shankar - Merry Chirstmas to you ,Santa stopped by early to your place
You picked up quite a few and all are great. I too like the Defender and the Lambo.

@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!!
The XF & Defender are amazing... I am actually looking for a 1:18 Defender, it is an amazing vehicle. The Miura looks good as well.

No Problem at all Shankar, who can resist not picking up those cars
I think I shall pop-in and see the collection and maybe pick up a few.
the Miura for sure - continuing my lamborgini collection

Edit - Just saw your signature. You just practiced what you preached!!

anyone who knows where in Pune these "WELLY" models are being sold at the moment. I saw zapak games written on one of the box in the pics above, is it the vendor?

@altohoncho
@yajaman
@gods-envy
@rpm

yes ZAPAK is the distributor - company is now owned by Anil Ambani I believe

The Lambo Miura -1:18- there are only 2 in Sapphire - other than the one I bought.

Defender -1:24 - there are three or four more in white - Ive got an earlier NewRay one in 1:32 - motorized 4WD type - lovely Dark Green classic but I ve not seen a 1:18 yet except some years ago at the Land Rover Dealership near Garhoud in Dubai - but my memory is not straight on that one! It was very expensive at that time as I remember which is why I didnt buy it.

Jag XF -1:24- there are 3 or 4 more all silver

Jag XK Coupe Dark Green 1:24 - there were three this morning - hopefully when I
come back after the holidays I will be able to buy one

Same goes for the Lambo Diablo 1:24- there were 3 in yellow - lets see when I come back if Im lucky to get one of them.

Sudden urge to buy these last 2 mentioned above!

The Range Rover in Black - again Welly - 1:18 - superb example - huge tyres!

Welly quality is great - but still I d say Bburago and Auto Art take the edge.

So gods-envy - let me know if you are still ordering from that distributor bloke - if you are then please grab the XK coupe and the Lambo Diablo for me as per my earlier request!

And just in case you dont get the Miura at Sapphire then maybe you can get the red one from the distributor and then if you prefer the yellow one I am happy to swap with you for the red.

cheers and Happy Christmas to all!

Hey,

Creative Education are the one's who have Model Art Store in Forum Mall Bangalore. I went and asked for the Italeri Kit models, but they told me they do not sell or import those. Where else could I look for them.

ben - Merry Christmas to you too!
Amit - will come back from the break and plug in some Def and XF pics too from various angles
SuperSelect - thanks!

if gods-envy gets the Miura too I ll be happy - trouble with these shops is that they get very little stock each time of the really lovely cars - all they seem to have are stockpiles of the less attractive vehicles!

@ Ravi,
Nice cars as usual & also nice photography.
This time, why don't you used the top of your SS for photography ??
@ Manish,
I really don't know at what other place you can get those Italeri kits. I provided you the address from my Rolls Royce kit box, but you may try websites like Amazon, ebay; if there is anyone who is coming from US, which I usually do for my Matchbox cars.
