From now on please post info, queries, pictures of your collections, dealer names etcc.. on this thread only . It will be easier for all of us and convenient too.

Thanks once again

if we can start a discussion on model types this thread will become really informative and interesting

@ sajands, thanx for bringing back some good memories. i had the blue tanker & here's the best part i had to give it to the MOTHER TERESA HOUSE as a gift when i was 8 or 9.
the reason: i was too old to play with this "plastic junk".

- Don't play around too much with your models and don't let other people handle them

I guess this kinda makes collecting boring but then again if you want your models to last for a long time there are somethings you need to do.

Shoppers Stop and Lifestyle carry Maistos. Gift Centre in Fort carries Autoart,Kyosho & Bburago. Manoj Stores and Premsons carry a few models as well.

Cheers



As long as you are keeping it its allright. Make sure you take good care of the box as well.



The silver ones right? I have a Bugatti EB100 keychain which I never put any keys on until about a month ago.

Thanks Khanak for your reply. Except for few, I have been taking care of most of the points u mentioned
- never exposed to sunlight or spot light
- never let any one touch them, or play with them
- regular cleaning and keep them dust free

Still the polish fading issue surfaced. I would try postin few pics to make u understand the issue better.

Is is that Miasto scale models are of moderate quiality than other brands?

Hey sajands,

I am desperately searching for my Leo Merc too. I bet it's still there somewhere in my house. I had two ambulances, a 'speed post' truck and a yellow dumper from that series.

The ones in Bold, you can get them in gift centre for sure!! And maybe some others too. The Brooklands is not out yet. Neither is the CLK Black. I dont know about the volante, but the Vantage is there.
