Like I said, got it as a Christmas gift from my twin, so not sure bout the price. But I think it retails between USD 300-325.

No, it isn't the kit, it's a 1:18 built model with functioning parts. I don't recollect CMC having 'kit' models??

CMC does make the same mercedes in KIT form. It is supposed to be very rare and unbelievably hard from what pics I have seen.

Started the E55 AMG project today. The test fit of the bumper cutting and then AMG exhausts. Painting and detailing left over. And The wheels should be here soon.. Getting Brabus V types.

Are those Fiats made by Welly in 1:36 scale? If so, I just bought the same 500 in Chennai and have also placed orders for the Punto and old 500.

I like the Carbonfibre detailing in this. Although the wheels are immensely rubbish. Cant wait for the Autoart version!!!

Yes very much at possibly most shops that sell scale models. eg. Hamleys, Landmark, Gift Center etc.

@Cyrus...yes the wheels are quite high profile than what they should be and it ain't even black(which a SV should normally have)
Otherwise good detailing for a 1:24. Especially like that small fire extinguisher inside

WOW! I've been wanting a CMC for some time now but haven't been able to pull the trigger on them yet. The detailing is SUPERB!

If you want a CMC, the Ferraris are the way to go!! Especially the Grand Prix versions.

I would say for ferraris go for GMP Diecast, they are simply awesome. Also Exoto's is one more brand with awesome detail.

By the way, just tried out flame painting job on my beetle, since we do not get fine line masking tape in India (like 1 mm -3mm), I had to cut out the design after sticking the masking tape. I will pinstripe the outline to cover the minor defects. Next time will probably cut out the stencil with plotter.

Umm I'm not really a fan of any of the race cars tbh. (maybe because I don't know anything about them). The only CMC Ferrari that I really want is the 250 GT. The Mercedess & Bugattis on the other hand on the other hand

Hear is a picture of a Lotus Exige I picked up recently.

The only Punto you get here is the 1:43 "Toy" Punto by Norev.
If you want a bigger one, try getting the 1:18 3 door by Mondo Motors from abroad.
