But the smell after opening both country made Box pack is same and very specific to Bburago...I dont know why,so,there must be either the paint or glue is of same make?
Very true . But then not all Made in China products are bad example can be Road Signature series.

Superb! No buddy it should be Merc itself, basically its this L3500 came in India as Tata 1210. I love this, you are making me envy on you!

I've had my eye on this one for some time now, Welly has both the open top & the soft top. It's part of their premium collection I think. A very nice piece.

Guys, I have managed to find a Few Rare Welly 1:43s.
A BMW 650
A Merc SLK
A VW Touareg
A Ford Mustand 1971
An Alfa Coupe or something.

Should I pick Them up?? Is it worth it? Is well known for its 1:43s?

Hate to burst your bubble mate but with the exception of the Stang, none of the others are rare, I have seen the Beemer, Merc, VW & Alfa (which happens to be the restyled 147) quite often. The only Mustang I have seen from Welly in 1:43 is the 2005 Stang
