The ford is really nice, I love hot rods. I am also building a 37 Ford Coupe Street Rod from the 1:24 Revell plastic kit.

Thank you for your opinions.

Manish, i am in State, so no shipping, no tax. A 1:18 scale model goes for $50 while a 1:24 scale model is $22.

That's why i was wondering if it makes sense to get only the scale model or a RC.

Yep for Sure.

Anybody know where I can get Sunstar Toys in China, they will be cheap there. I had an interesting Discovery

This is the route master Bus by Sunstar available in UK for GPB 189.99

1955 AEC Regent RT36 - FXT211, H2922


The same bus is available in US Price is USD 185.

Sun Star - Routemaster Bus - RT36 - FXT 211 (1955, 1:24, Green) 2922 - Toy Wonders, Inc.

GPB 189.99 = 13,412.91 INR

USD 185 = 8,245.91 INR as per todays conversion.

Same product but huge difference in Price. Recently I have bought 1:12 Morris Traveller for the UK website for GBP 111.99, I am wondering how much I have paid more.

At last, after much deliberation, I have finally bought my most favorite F1 car - the Ferrari F2007 piloted by Kimi Raikkonen.

Make: Hot Wheels Racing
Model: Ferrari F2007
Driver: Kimi Raikkonen
Scale: 1:18
Mode of Order: Official Ferrari Store (Ferrari)
Offer: 10% discount (To celebrate their 2010 Singapore GP victory)

End Price: 78 Euro

Since the shipping charges to Chennai were ridiculously high, I asked my friend in Belgium to get it for me. And the car has arrived at his house.

Guys,

Just saw this video on 1:12 models from Sunstar. VW bus and MM Convertible. The detailing is to die for.



Another one for the Bus



And this one of 1:12 MM Traveller with not so good videography



Also Shell is giving away free 1:36 scale models of Ferrari cars (total 6 of them) for every 350 Rs. petrol fill for motorcycles and 700 Rs. petrol fill for Cars. I have got 3 till now.

^^Nice collection, eagle. What make and scale is that LP640? The best part about it is that it lacks that unnecessary black frame around the headlights which scale makers have added as their own whim.

Buddy all the models are made by MAISTO.

All the cars are of 1:24 scale except for Hummer which is 1:27, the bikes are 1:12 scale except the M1 which is 1:10 scale.
