Bidding on e-bay is not at all working out for me, and deals on buy it now makes my day. Like this Triumph TR4 Rally for 21 pounds . A spitfire white color went for 15 pounds and just one bid, I missed that yesterday.

But This one I am liking more than the Spity cause of the extra rally lights, this will complete my trio - Austin Healey (Kyosho), MGB Rally (Auto Art), Triumph TR4 Rally (Jadi).

Congrats Manish bhai on the acquisition of this amazing model. The attention to detail is very nice with those stickers on the rear windshield and lovely interiors. Ebay is surely helping your collection grow at a fast rate.
BTW how much time does it take for the package to reach India. Was thinking of trying my luck on ebay UK.
Hows the models at Diecast miniature scale model Cars,Bikes,Trucks,Planes,Trains,R/C Cars,R/C Bikes,R/C Planes, battery & fuel powered R/C off-road buggies and other automobiles models available online in India at www.DreamCarModels.com. There are some models which really interest me especially the Porsche 959 by Bburago.

Have no fear about buying from DCM. The guy who runs it, Mr Karamvir, is a spirited and really friendly guy, and is trusted a seller, by many scale model collectors. He doesn't deal in the "premium" brands right now though.

Even AA and Exoto make/made it. Have seen a couple of UTs on ebay too.
