you could also try landmark - you will get some Maisto/ Bburago models there.
buying them on the net and shipping them into india is quite a pain, because for one thing the cost of shipping will be almost equivalent to the cost of the model.
plus unless it is shipped by recorded mail/ bar coded mail, there is a high possibility of pilferage.

I think the place is called Link Road. Where Infinity mall is. Check Westside in infinity mall and a toy store on the top floor.

At Andheri scale models can be found at Shoppers Stop, Infinity Mall, and the mall at Juhu I dont remember the name. I was at Big Bazaar Kandivali yesterday. They had a stock of 1:24 Bburagos. MRP was 599/- each but yesterday was their "Sasta day" so they were retailing at 249/- each. There were a few Range Rovers, Alfa Romeos and the old Mini to name a few.
