Default 1:24 Scale - Volvo C70 Cabriolet

@zibby: The Audi is superb!.
@traveloholic: Not sure about stores in Hyderabad. I myself haven't looked for/ shopped much except picking up a Bolero from centy recently. Still looking for the scorpio and amby from centy. Wish manufactures made 1:24 scale diecasts or better still 1:18 scale of our Indian cars.

Yet another volvo here, a 1:24 Scale - Volvo C70 Cabriolet from Bburago. Wish they had done a better job on the interior plastics and detailing.

@Zibby: Nice A 8 there, even i am lusting after a A8 for pretty long but in my case it has to be A8 W12 which is AFAIK only available in Kyosho and asking price is almost equal to the market price of my entire collection.

I normally pick the hotwheels from unsold stock from More Supermarket, Himayathnagar. I have seen the amby and other indian car models, I am not sure of the scale. They were between 1:32 and 1:24. But these were made of plastic. Of all the amby and the Maruti Van were of good detail and the Maruti Van was of good quality. I shall visit this store once again and check them out.

Nice lineup of Volvo vehicles. You should pick up the C70 coupe as well... would go well with the Cabrio

Yes its very much 170 INRs only, though 170 is bit high for a kinsmart. The scale is 1:36.

I agree to what Bandhav says... Rs. 170/- is surealy a bit high for KinSmart. But everything said & done, the quality and finish of KinSmart is good and would not mind spending that amount, given the range of scaled models available in KinSmart.

Thanks

This is simply awesome!! Loved the SX4. Looks like as if they are official scale models.
