My initial thought was the same too, but couldn't find any matching screw/place that it would fit into.

Hmmmm, could be. I cant think of any other application for it. But if that's the case, i would have expected it to have a more sharper edge. Probably not as sharp as to scratch the metal, but sharp enough to easily go into the thin seams to help them pry open. The edges seem pretty thick to me + whats with the hexagonal-long handle? Looks like there's more to it.

**FistBump** Got the same car for Diwali

That spoon is used for opening the hood, boot, doors etc. Comes handy while opening the boot, the shut lines are very fine on this model.

Here a few pics -

Default Searching for 1:24 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U400 (Welly)

Hi all,
First of all, Happy Diwali to all of you here & wishing you to have an AUTOMOTIVATED year ahead.
I have been posting here after a long time I must say & posting here to get an information regarding availability of a scale model.
I am looking for 1:24 scale model of Mercedes-Benz Unimog U400 by Welly. I have already searched at almost all major toy shops in Mumbai including Hamleys, but my search was in vain. Any color will be a choice for me.
Please do let me know if anyone is having any clue regarding availability of this scale model. I have also attached the pics.
Hoping that I will get few good clues regarding availability of this scale model.
Thanks & regards,
Hrishikesh

Here in Mumbai, this 1:24 MB Unimog U400 (Welly) was available around 5-6 months back at Hamleys. But as I was at college hostel, I was unable to procure it. As I visited Hamleys couple of days back, I have already given my requirement to their customer service desk. Hope they will reply to it asap.
Will let you know if I will be able to find one for me. Also let me know if you will get one of this.

I had a word with the sales head of Welly diecast toys in India Mr. Narinder Kumar, however he confirmed me that the latest launch of Welly diecast scales (1:24 ratio in specific) have yet not been launched in India, neither yet imported. Hence guess need to wait for a couple of months, if all goes well. Rest....Let's See what builds up.

Hi Yajaman,
Whats the scene with 1:43 scale? Do they have any good ones at all?
I recently went to the Hamleys in Dubai (Dubai Mall) and there werent any there.
Any idea which Hornby Trains they have here? Am looking for one of those "period" trains if possible.
Else I shall have to wait till my next holiday whenever that happens!
Cheers

Will need to visit it once in a while to keep an eye.
The 1:18 from motor max were just under rs 2000/-.

@Shankar-I did not notice any 1:43 models, 1:18 and 1:24 were all over the place. The Hornby i saw was Bullet Train , i had been there only once when it first opened so not sure if they got more stock. It is worth a visit once in a while.

Love your collection bro. Especially the 599XX and the Nissan. 599 has been on my wishlist for a while now, the elite edition.
The Zonda is absolutely gorgeous & the stig, well, looks like he's right at home with a BIG SMILE inside his crash helmet
