I am into race cars and dont actually fancy the bling things by Maisto. I have to admit some of those cars look like a they deserve a place in my tiny collection.

Pro Rodzz are similar to the Playerz series by Maisto right? The Playerz series may look cool but if you are serious about collecting please dont go in for them, a lot of details are really innacurate, Idv loved it if it were a scale model of a customised car that actually works but some of these models have impossible rim sizes and other wierd details

the players series agreed looks all show and no go but the pro rods can actually be done in real life
for reference check out some of chip foose's designs....they are similar...

and a couple of cars are replicas of real ones...like the gt 500 tourind edition that i have...though i removed the body kit and it looked exactly like the 67 gt 500

Prabhat Gift House, L J Road, Near Shivaji Park. Another silver example is also available there.

Yup, I read about it.

BTW, BHPian 300 KMPH is my brother!

I would like to inform everyone that Sunway Toys, India has started producing diecast models (of roughly 1:30 scale) of Indian Cars with opening doors and boot. Detailing is quite poor though. Some examples are available at the above mentioned shop.

I'm sure you'll get them Benny, they are available - my son had a couple of them (in the colors of my Ikon & my brother's 1.3 non-rocam). My brother picked up the models & actually had the patience to paint them in the same colors as our cars! That was a few years back though.

Nothing sensational apart from the regular stuff which includes some 1:18/1:24 cars and lots of Kinsmart Cars in the scale of 1:28 to 1:36 which includes a previous gen Ford Focus.... and some badly detailed Sunway toys manufactured diecast Scorpio, Innova, Swift and so on.

By the way, BHPian 300 KMPH found a plastic but decently detailed scale model of the good old Tata Truck.

In my very first post, I was talking about the scale model of Tata 407 made by Funtoyz. My friend owns these two models, a Tata 407 and an Ashok Leyland Cargo. Here's a pic
