Santa came visiting to my house as well, although slightly later as compared to you guys.
He presented me with gifts through my wife, and i now have an Imprezza, GTR, as well as a Defender.

this AutoArt Lambo Miura is indeed lovely but extremely pricey - Rs 4995 - 1:18 Scale
The AutoArt Beemer also is on 1:18 Scale and priced at Rs 4995 I think

great stuff - superb quality but needs a good bit of expenditure!

Personally Im willing to settle for the Welly toys in this scale but as always would vastly prefer adding to and expanding my 1:43 collection from Auto Art as well as other manufacturers!

The 1:24 Mini Cooper would be a good addition with quality at a price. Why not me cause I want 1:18 .

@ siddvi: Nice Samba there I have one too with a trailer and a Beetle all 1:24 came from Maisto same color as yours. Pics will be there today evening.

The EVO is an Evo 7 with the 2Fast 2Furious Body Kit. It is made by ERTL. And its a limited edition. 1 of 2000 I believe.

And the Skyline is a 1:18 Motormax

Indrojit da,

These models are also available in Bangalore so I think they would be available in other metro's too. Surprisingly the quality of the new Welly's (Zapak games sticker ones) has come out good. these models are in the 1500-1700 price range for 1:18 Scale.

Nice GTO there Cyrus..i think the quality and finish are at par with Maisto ? For long i am too searching for 1:24 scale muscles, but haven't succeeded yet(except for some posted long ago)...not even Maisto's.
