Default Re: The Scale Model Thread

Buying of Ebay and shipping to India is not a good idea (especially from US and Uk). Many of the stuff on US are damn cheap but the shipping is almost 3 times to UK (forget India).

I bought 2 stuff from HongKong (ebay) they arrived India in 10 days via HongKong Post.

I am using Ebay UK and Germany cause my sister is in UK and thus save a whole lot in Shipping (as many times the shipping is free).

Dream car models owner is a good guy and you can go ahead with purchase. How ever please do check ToyWorld.in - Buy Toys Online Now!!! they sometime have Price + Shipping lower than the DCM. I Bought my BBurago 1:18 Muira from toy world.

I know about the exotos. I let three of them go last week as I did not have 'adequate funding'

I put max bid as perceived by me , looks like I need experience. Exotos are so damn costly. By the way is any body aware of collections of Adil Jal Dharukhanwala (editor Zig wheels) and Gautam Sen (editor auto india). How can we have a peep into them.

Apart from the model art shop there is a Tamiya store in Noida, as of now he has only model kits but he do intend to bring metal models also.

And by the way saw this awesome unique item for sale on ebay, some one please buy this -

I believe Neil Topaz, a member of this forum, who has India's largest collection, has one. Check out his Picassa album for pics.
