sorry to bother you with this question but wanted to know which company makes the best quality and paint scale models and can i get details on models smaller tha 1:18 . i checked maisto on a local store and didnt quite appeal to me.
when i was a kid i had lots of hot wheels car (small ones about 60) but all were lost in time when i went top hostel.

Maisto does have ups and downs with their quality, but if you can afford upwards of Rs. 2500 for every model, then look no further than Autoart. I am hoping the likes of Solido, Sunstar, Kyosho and Minichamps also come to India so that collectors can have a wider choice.

i also saw a couple of 1:24 RC evo-s (Rs. 1250) and a 1:24 Subaru WRX RC by Nikko / Nippo (Rs 1450). the WRX looked great but had tinted glasses. i am gonna buy one of the sti-s this month. are these RWDs?

Cyrus, great work !!! I am happy that my advice has helped you.

Is that Veilside logo a handmade one ? If you have a color printer, you can print this logo



For those who own a Honda, these decals (below) can be a direct fit on the front doors. But the printout should be taken on a transparency sheet for the decals below....
