No Mav, havent this one around anywhere. I doubt it's available in Mumbai. Maybe Gift Centre might be able to source it from abroad but he will definately charge a hefty price.

Congratulations Dippy for the Lambo.... But trust me guys pics dont do justice to what the actual model looks like. I am sure Dippy would agree to it.

Thanks Rotorhead. Yes it is a highly detailed model. It seems that models of Vintage & Classic Cars dont seem to attract as much attention with most, as the modern Supercars do.

Dussey/Ruffryder

If some one could get a miniature die cast Tiger Tank I would love one!
Havent seen replicas anywhere except the vague sort of ones that they use as props for War Games - those look good but I would prefer a little working model - looked all over the place while travelling, no luck so far.

Also am looking for a working model of an RMC truck - I had one which was given to me about 10 years ago by some chaps at Schwing Stetter, but some blighted brat who visited my home, squealed and squealed and demanded it, with its blighted parents looking on at its antics in a fond and fatuous manner, blast them - so I was forced to give it away to keep the peace.

That truck was a Mercedes Miniature - about 1:18 scale and when it moved along, the concrete mixer used to turn just like a real one!
Any ideas where I can source one of those again?
