Bought this 1/18 AutoArt Maybach 57S yesterday. Does look odd in a collection of 30+ Ferraris, but it's elegance is something those Italians can't be compared with

I found Siku extremely good in detailing. But do the Conrad/NZG are still good.

In Chennai they are available with Hamleys, Express Avenue.
I have bought a couple of them - all are 1:87

Great! Siku models are frequently out of stock, here in Delhi. Have recently ordered one on Flipkart (a week back and it will be dispatched only by tomorrow) and waiting for 10 days or so for new stock to arrive in toy shops. I am a fan of smaller scale models and have started reviewing small scale models (1:50 & smaller - mostly Siku & GreenLights) in blogs. But these pale in comparison to the highly detailed 1:18 scale (and even 1:24 & 1:43) posted on this forum.

Understand that 1:87 is almost standard across makers for CV's I guess.
Similarly is that 1:24 is common available model for cars?

I believe 1:24 scale is popular primarily in USA. In rest of the world, serious collector's usually opt for 1:18 or 1:43 scale. Though now most scales are now available around the world. 1:24 scale car models are widely available in India from the likes of Maisto, Welly & Bburago

1:24 is popular in US because of kit building. That is a hobby which requires a significant amount of time, space, money and availability of parts n materials, owing to which, it is not much popular through the rest of the world. In terms of popularity, 1/43 is the most popular scale. You can find almost any car in that scale. Infact, prior to the diecast industry boom, serious collectors would buy 1/43 resin models. Post 1990 and the world changed, the focus was on 1/18 due to better tooling which offered a higher level of detailing. 1/24 is easily available in India due to the fact that Maisto Welly Bbuargo n other companies market them as toys, and most people buy them with a "slightly expensive toy" mind frame.

IMO, 1:24 is much detailed compared to the 1:43. But I never felt Maisto is good in detailing.

OT-Apart from Hamleys, are there any other shops where can I get Trucks / CV scale models in Chennai?

These are a few of the 1:18 scale models I have. Sorry for the bad pics taken but haven't had anytime to get them cleaned. They have been lying on this shelf for years now. Clean them probably once in two years. These are very old. The Lexus I bought way back in 1998. The Ferrari 348 and Porsche were given to me as a gift in 1996.
Those days I had all the time in the world to open every part and clean them thoroughly. Nowadays time is just not available.
The f1 looking car is from an Indy racing serious bought in 2001. Yup badly maintained as you can see. Well one day I will again get back to opening them up and cleaning them thoroughly. Though only time will tell.
The bikes again are gifts. The BMW 3 series was given to me as a souvenir during the launch. It's quite detailed. And also very clean.lol.

Damn. Looks like a 1/18 Paragon Models Dealer Edition 3 series. They have just hit the international market, approximately a month back and you already have one!

I don't know about Chennai, you can get them at Automania in Mumbai. Those guys will ship to Chennai.

That's a 1:43.Not 1:18.
