Hi Sajan, glad you liked them. I ordered them from http://www.modelcarworld.de/uk/
The shipping charges and Customs Duty were rather steep, but I just had to have these models It took 2 weeks to deliver from Germany.

I have ordered a ton of scale model vehicles online and only faced a problem with the packing once when I ordered from Flipkart. The spoiler on the car was broken and FK replaced it within a day or two without any hassles. WRT a wrong colour / product, on one occasion FK advertised the new BMW X5 and sent the old one instead but I was Ok with that so didnt return it. Otherwise there have been no issues with the 40 - 50 orders (if not more) which I have placed online.

Yeah, that's the problem, you ordered all the good stock
Besides, there isn't enough collection of Welly on Flipkart or Amazon(Both places seller is same -Primac/Pelican)
Just to clarify, i'm talking about only 1:18models

There are lots of 1/64 collectors in India, we have a dedicated group on Facebook - "Hotwheels India Collectors/Fans". Sadly group is limited only to Hotwheels. But the current day situation is that for 1/64 scale, aside from HW, you don't get anything else in India ! :(
Hey,

Thanks for replying. Lucky you, I wish i had someone who could get it for me. Was on Ebay today and someone is selling "20 piece lots of HW 5 Packs", trying my hardest to resist buying them.

I've sent a request to join the group, its been pending for quite a few days. Could you pass on the message to any admin to accept the same and do you guys trade on it ??

Apart from local vendors, there is no online portal apart from Dreamcarmodels.com(ordered their whole stock) that sells individual HWs, or is there ?

Thanks again for replying, I'm confused whether to start posting my collection here or not. Its mostly still in blisters, apart from 200 Odd old models.

Automania in Mumbai had the 1/43 Fiat 1100 for under 2k. I guess they still might have some stock left. Getting models from Germany is a a very expensive affair, rather buy from HongKong based sellers. They undervalue the model plus shipping is considerably cheaper.

Time for a double header for all die hard Yamaha fans.

In keeping with the Christmas theme, here's a lovely picture of two R1s.

I'll surely tell the admin to accept you. Yes we do trade n sell stuff over there.

Apart from DreamCarModels, there is scalearts.in This guy doesn't sell HW, but is the official distributor for M2 machines in India. I'll attach some pics for reference.

And yes, do show us your collection !

Hey, welcome here. It seems that you are primarily into HWs. Do you also deal with GreenLights, Johny Lightning, Corby etc? Please do let me know once you have put up the stuff for sale. I am already interested on the Ferrari 5 pack, the image which you have uploaded.

Best regards.
