^^^True. Wish Sunstar had its models retailed here. There's have some good ones. Also the Maisto, Welly, AutoArt, etc available here are the same exotics/sports cars why not bring in something out of the ordinary along with those.

Some of the best Sunstars are 1:12 VW's and Morris models.they have the detaling to die for, would consider them reasonably priced at around $150( though i cant afford them right now).

No No. Not a part of my Fleet. Not the Morris anyways. The Mercs that they have definitely. Gift Centre is trying to get Sunstar and Mondo to India.

I have the Fiat 500 & Lamborghini Reventon from Mondo... the Reventon is a little low on details, but the 500 is amazing. Will be getting the Estoque soon as well, right now concerntrating more on Muscle and American Classics.

I too saw a Morris by them at

Sun Star - Morris Minor Traveller (1956, 1:12, Dark Green) 4791 - Toy Wonders, Inc.

What a great detailing. I am awesmitten and want that model to be in my fleet.

AUTOart -
US$ 500 ~ Rs.25000/-

That's a bit too much by any standard even for a 1:12. Is this a limited edition?

Very true in the sense that one can buy a decent car for that price and can enjoy the potential of a car rather than just moving its wheels, opening hood, trunk and doors. And of course it would provide the service in return rather than just sitting idle as a show piece. no offence meant to anybody as i am also a collector of diecast model cars but not of that range.
