I'm not a fan of resin models, but goddamn, I have to give credit where it's due. Ignition models look sick
First TSM model to collection - 1979 Porsche 935 K3 Le Mans winner. Really impressed with the quality, and the packaging. I know they have their issues here and there, but we should really want these guys to succeed - keep doing it, fellas.
Have a "cleaning" of the collection, 2 cars sold, 6 cars maybe sold. I really hope I wont regret this.
Anyone got a rough idea how much a 1/43 model to be posted to the UK from Hong Kong roughly is? Been quoted £15!

Bought an Exoto Sauber C9 online and went to pick it up in person and it was full of paint rash! Sad, I really wanted that model. It was the Kouros livery, in case anyone is curious.
CraigAh that sucks!!

Stu72That's a shame Wes, I've had so many Exotos with paint rash that I won't be buying another one again.

lateapexWell, thats dodging a bullet. Much better that way than to receive it from New Zealand or something, and having to return it. Its a shame of course, epic model car.

has anyone used the Global Shipping Programme on ebay.want to buy a couple of model from the states and was looking at using this service
CraigThe 'fees' include the extra shipping cost to send to the UK etc.

colourkin22I have used it and hope they only charged me taxes and shipping as there is no duty charges on diecast coming into Canada.

The PaladinPlease dont use that crap, they charge much more for the shipping and they also add the taxes right away, I havent payed a tax in years using postal services.
Basically if you use it then you alienate the foreign bidders.

Anyone knows if the red Porsche 911 (930) slant nose by Revell is affected by zinc pest? Couldn't find information about it.

Got my GT Spirit Martini 3.8 RSR today. I find the paintwork a bit yellowish. is it supposed to be like this or is this the correct colour? Looks like Honda's Racing White... Appreciate input from guys who has this model. Thanks!
technicaOh... thank u Sergio! Now i can rest my mind. :)

OldirtybastardI find a lot of Otto white cars are yellow. I think it's an error in the paint/lacquer process.
Aug 27 2015 11:00 AM
technicaI think it is the lacquer problem. So far the only yellowish one is this RSR. Thankfully the rest of my models from GTS or Otto are ok.
