This is the next humble addition to my forum, a Mercedes-Benz 500 K Typ Specialroadster (1936) gifted to me by my grandpa. It cost me Rs 1995. The detailing is just excellent, but the parts are rather too delicate.
AutoArts (starting at Rs 4200) are too expensive for the son of a salaried government official to afford.
wow i actually have the same one!!looks like our collections are a little bit similar..and yes im getting the 300sl to go with my slr, 500k and sl500

Coming just to buy scale models, I presume?
Anyway, if I can, I'll make it to Forum and meet you there.

in a few days time; i'll be laying my hands on my first ever 1:24 and 1:18 scale models 'coz i finally found a store in hyd that sells them
just wanted to know if we can open the box(unpack the car) to see the quality and detailing(interiors and engine bay) at the shop itself?
one more thing, does anyother company, apart from shelby collectibles, make the Eleanor?

Wow! Except the 1st two, all the pics look like those of real cars!

@Cryrus: Is that the same Accord whose paint job you ruined?

In Chennai, landmark in Spencers Plaza was the place to shop for scale models (have not visited there recently). Earlier they had some good collection, some of the unsold exotics were at 50% discount and they even stocked scale garage accesories and scale vintage petrol dispensers.

Can any one from chennai please visit and let us know of the update?

I remember, dozens of scale models were available at landmark apex plaza,including my mother's gift to me, the citroen that i broke. This used to be before 2005when I used to live in chennai. In bangy, there are next to no models at all in landmark.

@Diecast : Man, just loved your E collection, though I would like to get only the W124 out of this, from where you picked this up? AFAIK there is not even a single model available of this here in India.

@Cyrus: Motormax?? I must say this is one of the crappiest looking 1:18 I have seen in recent times.
