Hi all
This is a fantastic thread. Was just browsing the forum and came across this thread. Though I was always interested in Scale models but did not know any online place where I could post my queries and share my views. I think that now I have got the most appropriate place.
I have not gone through the complete thread but will definitely go thru it when I get the time.

Guys the shop which desideep and markiv are referring to is called "Maya Toys" in Aurobindo market. Its very famous and when driving on your way from under the IIT flyover towards AIIMS (though you do not have to go that far) it is visible on your left hand side(from the main road). Bought a couple of scale models from them myself. (will definitely post the pics soon)
Did a google and found the following address
Maya Toys
11/16
Aurbindo Palace Market
110016
Maybe it helps. Also they have 2 shops in the same market.
Other places where I have seen scale models (though the collection is not as vast as Maya Toys) are at a couple of the Malls at Rajouri Garden (Lifestyle and also at the Shoppers Stop).
Keep up the good work

Guys saw this at the Le Meridien, Delhi in their wash rooms on the ground floor.
The bad picture quality is because it was taken by my camera phone (Nokia 9500) which has the most hopeless camera there is, but thought this is a nice idea to display cars

Cyrus, I seen a lot of the pimped Maistos at Shopper's Stop in Inorbit. Sadly, none of them were in kit form. If they werent so expensive, I would have got some of them and used the parts to modify some of my normal cars. Modelart used to have some of the Proridez(?) in kit form. Now there is no sign of Modelart anywhere and they have still not reopened in the mall.
