A WRC Fabia looked also very attractive, but I wanted a sedan for my collection and besides the WRC Fabia was for around Rs.1200 or so.
Sir,
this is 1:43 Superb and not 1:18.
i bought the same from this Auto Expo

I dont think the price is jaw dropping.
i bought a lamborghini Gallardo superlegera 1:43 from Autoart at 1500 bucks.
You get cars with good details at this price only.
moreover 1:43 Autoart models or any other make for Mercedese cost around 2000 bucks.

@ cyrus, the mod. looks nice.

I would really love to have one.
Do share where we can buy them and the cost please as well as the Scale?

Thanks!
As you saw you could have got it in Auto Expo.

well i am only talking about these new norev models which are horrible in fit, finish & quality & costs too much.

don't compare an AA with these NOREV models. there are a hell & heaven differences between them.

Not in the 1:18s. Norev can hold its own against an AA

Hey traveloholic i am not using any digicam as i still don't have one. The photos are taken from a 1.3MP mobile phone cam (Nokia 3230). this is the reason behind the blurring of photos. Do 2 MP cameras in the phone take better photos ?

you might want to take a clean piece of cloth and clean the camera lens. i think it could be fingerprint or a layer of oily substance (hair cream or similar) that is causing the pictures to come out blurred.

and yes, 2MP cellphone cameras do take better shots, but not always.

If you are using your phone to capture the photos, then make sure that you take the photos from a distance. Most of the pics, you are trying to take are Macro Shots and a mobile camera lens is incapable of taking good macro shots. I would suggest you to take the snaps from a distance.

2MP Camera's also give great outputs, it all depends upon which mode and how are you taking the shot.
