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



That's a great news, is that prabhat gift centre in dadar.

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

I somehow really wouldn't mind it. Look at the engine compartment. Unbelievable!

How about some love for the Morris Cyrus?

Are they trying to get these brands on their own or through ModelArt? I'd love to see Minichamps in India instead of Mondo and Sunstar.

I believe all 1:12s by Autoart are for about that much.

Thanks. I bought it from Mercedes-Benz collections as part of their official merchandise. The box says Auto Art, made in China.

Your collection of Mercs is quite awesome. Where can i buy an 212 E Maisto like yours?

The one saw at Merc is this pearl beige Elegance with no LED DRLs in the front bumper.

@Vivek: The C looks beautiful. Is that a pic from the display case at the merchandise area of Mercedes? That looks like GL Am I right?

All,

For that amount of money I would rather go for GMP Diecast. look at this model and the detailing

GMP Diecast - Diecast Car Replicas; Muscle Cars, Sprint Cars, Dirt Cars, Road Racing Cars, Vintage Dirt Cars and Dragsters; plus Fender Guitar Replicas and World War II Military Aircraft Replicas#

or two of these types from GMP

GMP Diecast - Diecast Car Replicas; Muscle Cars, Sprint Cars, Dirt Cars, Road Racing Cars, Vintage Dirt Cars and Dragsters; plus Fender Guitar Replicas and World War II Military Aircraft Replicas#

I agree that these models are not GTR, but the detailing is awesome. .

Also a friend of mine found a 1:24 scale Fiat Punto(Make:Carama??) while on travel abroad. Looks neatly done and would love to have one in the collection.
