@ traveloholic,
An army vehicle version & a bureaucratic vehicle version with a small Indian flag on the bonnet is already available from Centy Toys for just Rs.50/- at any local toy shop.

@dhrishikesh, I did not find any. Hence I thought of modding up my Amby's. I used a couple of discarded LED lights and painted them red. Then struck them on top of my Amby's.

Off late, I find the quality of Shinsei Cars to be better than Centy Cars.

Will check out if I can lay my hands on Centy stuff. Biz Bazar used to stock them up, these days I do not see them in Big Bazar anymore. Seems they have stopped procuring Centy Toys stuff.

@agspins: Lovely tractors, man - are they all Indian ? I guess they must be specially commissioned models, by the companies.

@Cyrus: What a car, A class by itself. Don't know when I'll get my 1st Merc.

@Shankar: Hey I liked the mouse idea by the motor companies, Which other car-mouses are available ? Are they optical/ball/laser type ?

I saw the mouse at the local tata dealership but am not a mouse user myself so didnt bother evaluating it.

I wish they had a toy punto 1:43 scale - I would dearly love to get one each in Fiery Red or Vocal White!

The tata dealership prerana on Sarjapur Road is so lackadaisical about everything that I dont know whether there will be any interest at all on their part in the scale models - considering their apparent lack of interest in selling the real cars themselves.
