Yes Shankar, even I have experienced the same in that dealership. The people in that show-room are so lazy and sleepy all the time. Never interested in making sales or atleast attend to a customer well.

Default MiniChamps Bentley Brothers

Got these two Bentleys from my brother at Christmas 2009, just got down to taking some pictures, not yet put them on display yet. He got me the Bentley Blower 4.5 liter LeMans racer from 1930 and the Bentley 6.5 litre Blue Train Special. Both are by MiniChamps and finished in British racing green. The finish is immaculate, the detailing is outstanding and the feel is intense.

You're a lucky guy RPM. I have no hesitation is saying that I envy you rather a lot!
I would love to get a hold of a couple of these!
Would you by any chance know if such Classic Bentleys are available in 1:43 as well?
Best!

Oh my my what a detailing, seems like it's 1:18 scale. Minichamps models are really very good. Could you please let us know how much they will cost on our pocket.

And here some pictures from my side. 1. Custom Bike 1:24 by maisto.

2. 1:24 AC Cobra by maisto.

3. 1:18 Ford Pickup by signature (this was shot as an photography exercise, we took around 100 pics)

The last time I checked the price at the shop was AED 1375 each. However, I am unsure if my bro got it at a discount for multiple purchase.
