I shop at HobbyCo & HobbyWorld and I just checked and both of them are located in Sydney only.

Apart from finding a store in Adelaide, you could try ordering the cars off Biante.com.au ;)

Ok I got the green light to open my bday present early from a relative. Here are my pics:





Just gotta find space in cabinet. Its almost as long as the SLR!
The usual Maisto build quality. It feels soo flimsy in my hands. All those plastic chromy bits and pieces will fall off if the wind blows too hard.
It came with rather prominent marks on the rear of the car and along the sides. I have a Maisto S-Type that came in bad condition aswell!!

I plan to get the SLR still but i have yet to allocate enough money to spend on diecasts any more. Speaking of whcih, i'm gonna redo some photos of my m3 gtr, skyline r34 z-turned and maybe add a few pics of my lambo/aston.

my gallardo is Miasto, from the way i was handling it and opening the doors/hoods, it felt decent. It's not as heavy as my autoart or minichamps and it's not as highly detailed on the interior as them either but it serves its purpose. When i was looking at my aston and m3gtr, i felt the rims were not shiny enough. Gotta chrome 'em baby!!!

PS. Yes those are photoshoped. I am not gonna pay $100+ usd for a diecast that has lights.
