Not bad. the Sale cars are awesome. But I am returning the Zonda. The Door is broken. May end up with the Jag XK instead.

Most of my models I buy off ebay, I bought some from hamleys and harrods in london and some from car showroom. There is another shop called modelzone they have quite alot. Visit their website Model Shop | Model Cars, Helicopters, Planes & Boats, Die Cast Models, Scalextric
Got the Maserati gt off ebay for 20 including ship it was in original box and excellent condition.

you should pop up to Stratford upon Avon - a day trip from London.
There you can enjoy a bit of Shakespeare-land, see his home etc and visit a lovely little store called Much Ado About Toys. That gentleman has been running his store for ages as a family business and has all sorts of very nice scale models and train sets.
worth a visit in my opinion.

I visited their website but nothing great on cars, trains and trucks are very much there.

Instead I ordered some stuff from Modelzone, they had some good stuff. Waiting for my sister to return back .

Could not get you?? Bye the way there is a Zonda by mondo motors for 25 pounds at their site, which seems quite cheap.
