an excellent model.

@ manishalive,
1. Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing- Bburago has one, an excellent model. look at any shopping mall.
2. Lamborghini Muira- a maisto model is there, but hard to find.
4. Mercedes transporter (the Blue flat bed open Van/ truck to transport race cars)- 1:43 scale model is available from wellys. you will find them in most toy shops.
7. Rover Mini- again a Bburago in 1:12/24 scale.
10. London Double Decker Bus- 1:32 wellys, available in toy shops.
11. HM Landmaster / Ambassador- available in one shop only in mumbai, forgot the name. search the forum.

the rest i think are not available normally in india, you have to import it.keep a sharp look at various models available in toy shops, malls in your place. that will help.

Great find, But I don't think so that you have bought it from India ??
Thank you all for the kind words. It is an encouragement for newbies like me

Yes, The detailing of FM's are much better than what I have seen in Hotwheels.

And you are right, I picked it from UK.And although I didnt fancy the color, the price (SALE) was 19.99 GBP ie <1600 INR.

Can you tell me who makes the '50 Talbot Lago,Ferrari 166S , Ferrari 250 TR, Ferrari 375 America,MB 300 SL in 1:24.

My dream is to collect the 1949-1970 Le Mans winners.

Also can all the experts advise me whether I should switch to collecting 1:18? I was thinking of 1:24 because of the space constraint in the display layout. But I am now concerned that 1:24 models may not be available
