How did You come up with the idea & Brief
something About Journey
There are limited options for scale model collectors in India. Being a scale model car collector, Vishal used to import scale models from abroad for his personal collection. Incidentally, while discussing with friends regarding difficulties in collecting scale models, it occurred to him that making them accessible in India will benefit many scale model collectors like him. It originated as an idea and took momentum when he started connecting with scale model manufacturers and explained them about the demand for their products in Indian market. One thing led to another and he started dealing with more than a dozen brands in scale arts.
” Scale model collection is a hobby and collectors are passionate about certain models and its specifications. Hence, their first goal is collectors’ satisfaction. Being a collector himself, he understands his collector’s requirements well and always tries his best to provide unique and rare models to grace their collection”, Says The Founder Mr. Vishal Bendre.

About funding, plans for growth
Since we reached on really good stage before Investors came in it was never really a challenge to raise investor money. The company never went looking for funds. He believes in making strong business plans and customers retention rather than looking for investment seeding.
His future plan is to launch Scale Arts In’s retail outlets in all major cities. And first one is starting very soon in Pune.
