Well done... It should be good. They have a wicked 'woodstock' themed VW bus.

Default Autofest City News - Jul-Sep 2010

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

We’ve been out of circulation a couple of months due to the three Bs – bad weather, bad health, bad software. Compounded, these three put us pretty much behind our schedule in producing our newsletters on time.

We were flooded with enquiries when our newsletter was not out these months. But surely all our friends and fans will understand.

We’re back now and hope not to have any such ill-luck again. We continue from where we dropped off – introducing you to our new entrants of the year. Here is the link: V9-I7 Jul-Sep 2010.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

Just to let you know that our website is one among hundreds in India accidentally blocked when someone wrote something nasty about the Home Minister of Maharastra State using this free portal. Wrongly interpreting the court order, which required only the offending website to be blocked, the entire IP address hosting a whole bunch of websites was blocked since August 9, 2010. Read all about the fiasco here: IT dept goofs up, shuts sites - Hindustan Times

If the news article is to be believed, the matter will be resolved soon. Till then, those of you who can’t take your eyes off Autofest City, please visit our web-album www.picasaweb.google.com/autofestcityindia instead.

Best wishes,
Neil D’Costa

Default is this a good buy?

I need urgent opinion.

I am getting a Lamborghini Reventon Remote Control Car for just $24.

I am not too good with size, but the spec says the Car measures 7 inches long x 3 inches wide x 2 inches high. Some more info: officially licensed by Lamborghini. Toy car features a full-function remote. Radio remote control has a 45-meter range.

Two Questions:

- What would be approximate scale? 1:18, 1:24 or something else
- Is this a good buy at this price?

Please advice. Thanks.

PS: Mods, if this is wrong thread, please move to appropriate thread. i wanted to know scale of this model and its price for the same. So posted here. Thanks

Are you ordering from India, the add heavy postage also to the cost. You will get An 1:18 Scale Maisto make in India too.

And if you are in the States, then why restrict .
