Yes it can be frustrating when TOYS are posted in a scale model thread. Then again, no guidelines as such were coined for the same i think. Hope it gets addressed soon.

Regarding the information sharing part, Tbhp on this subject served its time well & dedicated forums like SMC took over that role to an extend & is doing a fine job at that, with much more diversity than what could've been possible with a single thread. I for one find this thread these days to be more like a photo archive, while saving the finer details for a dedicated forum.

I'm sure Dippy meant 'diecast' scale models when he started this amazing treat, so definitely, TOYS should be kept out of this area!

Dont buy from Vicky.in. There is a thread in Tbhp on this. Check with dream car models, they should have the Jag.

If you are Bangalore based, try ModelArt in Forum Mall. They are authorised dealers of Auto Art, Maisto, Burago models.

Yes here is the email of the person who manages ModelArt from Mumbai. I contact him for price lists and incoming models from time to time.

His name is Mr. Maneesh Ghorpade. Email id modelart1@gmail.com. Responds quickly too.

You are welcome. Ask him to send you the price list for whatever they have in stock. So you can decide your budget accordingly before visiting the store
