On my recent Mumbai visit, I saw this fantastic, well detailed Mercedes Benz Transporter in 1:18 scale by Schuco at Automania. Mumbai priced at Rs. 29,000/-.

AmarPaithankar!!Thanks for posting a photo of the 1:18 Mercedes Benz 0317 Porsche Renntransporter by Schuco.I've just bought one of these but since I'm away in college,I won't get to see it till I get home in December.
It really looks bloody huge.No wonder my mom's so angry with the size of the thing.Should have given her a proper heads-up.

Well, i know the quality is shabby, but you cant do much when thats the only one who manufactures it & you really got to have one in your collection. Take for eg. the LP670-4 SV, awesome car, but sadly no one (read: affordable) manufactures it in 1:18, but ive heard that AA has it on its coming soon release list

Nice collection Zibby!
Yep. Sure is!! Also Norev is doing a version too and that should be 1/3rd the Auatoarts price. That said, Im most certainly going to get the Autoart when it comes!! In bright Blue hopefully!!

Classy Discovery. This model as well as that of a LWB Defender has been on my wish list for long.

I am attaching a few more images of my Lancia Fulvia that my friend Amit has taken.

Rally conversion is going on and for this I will either take reference of rally Fulvias of yore or design my own decals / strips.

Awesome dude, mind bowgling. We got the same in 1:24 maroon color. But this red incarnation is simply to die for. Seems like 1:18 Autoart.

Temptation's come in many forms, but this one bowles me over.

You're right Manish, the Fulvia is indeed a masterpiece by Auto Art in 1:18 scale. The paint finish is simply flawless.

Some images of my 1:18 scale Range Rover by Welly:
