Cyrus: I guess there is some combined weight related cap beyond which you'll have to pay the customs on these. I not very sure, read about this somewhere and I am yet to experience it :P

Not really, if there is no packaging or something, you dont really have to worry much. But I know I am going to have some problems. Lets see...

Default 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL 'Gullwing' Uhlenhaut Coupe - 1:18 CMC

Got a 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL 'Gullwing' Uhlenhaut Coupe - 1:18 CMC from my twin for Christmas... my first CMC and it is truly outstanding. Just managed to get one pic as my 2 year old nephew is around and I'm not about to take a chance with the Gullwing. So more detailed pic after the 6th of Jan, till then enjoy this.

Thanks planet_rocker, cityvic & Scorcher for the nice words.

I really love the 320i WTCC. The body is so proportionate with a long low slung bonnet, tight body with wheel arches and a stubby boot. And as this model is a sealed one, AUTOart claims the attention to detail on the outside is tremendous, and I second that. I always wanted a E36, E46 3er. The design exudes pure and subtle class. If only someone could give me the AUTOart BMW M3 CSL.

I am a lazy photographer and had to take snaps of all my 5 models in a jiffy, so I forgot to take the 320i's interior snaps showing the WTCC racing trim along with a full roll cage. I have locked all my cars in a glass showcase away from the prying eyes of my numerous little cousins back home. Check my Subaru on page 555 and trust me, posting on that page was pure coincidence.

Now to the second one, the mighty 2004 Dodge Viper Competition Coupe, Plain Body Version in Black. Enjoy my friends!

@ deetjohn: Awesome touring cars there! Posting a couple of pics of the same Beemer by Kyosho.

Edit: My bad, its a E90 320i, is awesome nonetheless!

I'm not a fan of rally cars, but that Viper is awesome.

Dear Patrons, friends & well-wishers,

Our best wishes to all of you for 2011. May all good things be yours!

December was quite hectic but we made time to produce our newsletter over the last two weeks so that we could release it promptly, today. Here is the link:

V9-I10 Dec 2010.pdf - File Shared from Box.net - Free Online File Storage

Christmas celebrations at Autofest City were quite unique this year. We also made our very first eBay scale model purchases. Our very dear friend and patron Mr. Mohan Prasad, from Melbourne, Australia, paid us a surprise visit. All the news and more in our newsletter.

Best wishes,
Neil D'Costa
