Default Minichamps is finally here !!!

Guys, Minichamps is finally here. I spent an hour at their dealer's place yesterday (Automania), and he has the most amazing treasures.
I was literally salivating seeing the stuff that's available.

Spent an hour at the place, and bought a lovely Morris Minor Convertible, 1:18

Get ready for some action, here's a small bit of what I saw there:
p.s.: as he's a direct importer, the prices are quite reasonable. They're planning to open a proper showroom in central Mumbai, very soon.

Thanks, got this one after seeing yours but in 1/18. Wanted to get the in same colour but couldn't find any. There is a Chinese make which makes official volvo and ford 1/18 in plastic. The detailing is ok, dont know if they sell in India

i have got a couple of these light and sound ones but frankly i prefer the other hotwheels collectors scale models - those are more authentic in my opinion.

Guys, the Minichamps importer has his office at Prabhadevi, and one at Tardeo. PM me if you want contact details.

BTW the Morris Minor cost me 3K. I think that's a fair bit cheaper than what it was priced at Gift Centre.
