Default Mercs !!

Guys I got my hands on two amazing classic Mercedes models - 200 D Taxi (Black), and 280 E Saloon (Ikonengold metallic).
Both are 1:43 Minchamps, collectibles. (1 out of 1392 and 1 out of 1296 pieces)
The detailing is incredible, one must see them to believe it !! Pictures don't do justice to these two beauties... Even the grille emblem (Star) is detailed, which must be 1 mm in diameter !!

And considering the price, it's tad cheaper than Welly's model + has eye lashes also.

@agspins : I thinks thats a maisto 1:18 (this was my first birthday gift around 7-8 yrs ago)

shankar.balan: Thanks, i lau the tractor too, unique.

71Convertible: I was so glad to see the tamiya, all built up, looks amazing.
You wont believe i have the same model kit but i had to give up half way due to shifting and never got around doing it. now looking at you, ill definitely finish what i just started.
ps: I found this kit in a cash converter store for 10$, sadly he didnt have any more.

@dirtbag -- yes it's a great kit. Have fun building it! A tip -- the inner wires of Cat 5 cables are much more scale realistic for the brake hoses -- in case you've lost some of your hoses.

@shankar.balan: Nice picks. Very good start for the year.
@dirtbag: Welcome. Nice collection you got there, love the tractor. What scale and make is the tractor?
@71Convertible: Nicely assembled HondaCB900F2, looks like the real one.
@SuperSelect: WOW!! Beautiful Mercs. Nicely detailed too. How much did you pay for those?
@manishalive: Its all Miuras. Is the Miura a Bburago? Where did you pick it?

None of the Shops in Bangalore stroe this model, Two shops (online) sell them, one is in Mumbai (Cars - ToyWorld.in - Indias Largest Toy Store!!!) and the other in Ludhiyana (http://www.dreamcarmodels.com/product_page.php?pid=6&remarks=)

Mumbai one is cheaper, might be cause of older stock.
