I finally laid my hands on the 1:18 Nissan 350z Nismo S-Tune (Maisto). It compliments well with my Nismo Skyline. Detailing is a couple of notches below my skyline but nevertheless it's a decent buy for Rs.1600/-

Cyrusbhai, thanks for informing me about the 350z. I'll get decent pictures by the weekend, sure!

For others, this is the pic from the official website.




The only (bad quality) pic I could manage to click was the one involving some drifting action with the Skyline.

finally, finally, finally its here. i am out of words to describe it. (not because i do not know english), but i was dreaming about these two models every night for the last 2/3 years. they were out of stock, being old models available till 2002.
found both of these in BIG BAZAR. thanx for keeping such models.
i hope GTO & SAMURAI will like it.
this horrible color will be changed to black, the wheels & bull bars to silver. see the RECARO lookalike seats.
they are all from CENTY & are of 1:47 scale.
its known by the name of MAHINDRA CLASSIC.

You bet I do!! And am pleasantly surprised at their attention to detail. Drainholes, roll bar shape, 4x4 badge above the rear wheels, wire wheel effect....they covered it all. Even the standard Mahindra mudflaps are the same. The spare wheel is centered on the tail gate in stock form. My Classic has exactly the left-aligned arrangement as the scale model.

Gonna have Mom keep an eye out for this Jeep whenever she visits the big bazaar. Thanks man.

Add to that the fuel filler cap in the right position. I am going to start looking for this one.
