I doubt it. Although they would have been ridiculously expensive.

As told by the shop representative or the owner. Around 30K (but not sure for F1 or for the transporter, I am confusing between two).


Any way just bought Austin healey 1:18 by Koshyo, Yellow. recently listed and in awesome rate of 40 pounds.

You're right.That was the 1:12 McLaren F1 by Minichamps.It was priced at around 30 grand and simply flew off the shelves.

My bad.. damn the spirits. No I dont want the breitling, would prefer waiting the lady. Are there any made by Autoart/Maisto etc... a few I came across online are crazily expensive.

Autoart consignment for the F1 is yet to arrive, I havent recieved any notification from the modelart.

No one makes a 1:18 Roller yet. Kyosho has announced the 1:18 RR Ghost in the second quarter of 2011. Rest assured, you will be seeing some here soon!! Cant decide on silver or black. maybe both then.

The other 1:18 Rollers you can get are the Resin ones. They are sealed. I think completely worthless IMHO.

And to this exciting pair I wish to add Triumph TR4 (Mumbai and Nagpur rally are to be blamed for) or Triumph TR3a.

Me think, MGA is better than MGB and similarly TR3 is better than TR4. Hope to find a decent example soon.

The pics are actually from some ones album. Pics from my side will come way way late in April.
