    I feel for you brother! This ongoing SQL Error situation is beyond annoying now. It seems every week or 2 we have the same issue popping up.

26 euro shipping for two 1/43 models from France to Australia. Is this real? Seller said he has no other choice...

    I'd say thats not too bad. Half way around the world for 26 Euro.

    Shipping in some EU conutries is expensive :/ Would cost me more if I had to ship them from Denmark
    Jan 19 2017 04:48 PM
  • lateapex's Photo
    Yeah, would cost 40 euros or so from Norway.

The E30 M3 1/12 from OTTO is sold out. Do you think they will release it in another color?

    With a few tweaks they could make the Cecotto or Ravaglia editions too.

So I've started displaying my autoart 1/18 alfa 33 in a display case / box. I picked up the model today and saw that the tryes left some sort of residue on the base of the box. There weren't any flat spots on the tyres though. Why is this? Some sort of reaction? It has been very very hot the last few days here in Sydney.

    Thanks for the responses guys. Great to know I can relax about it. I never noticed it with my 1/43 models, so I assumed it was something to do with Autoart tyres.

    Its worse with the one Ignition model I have, it literally glues itself to the display case. It comes off easily enough, with no marks on the tires.

    The same thing happened to me
    The display case acts like a green house
    Once it gets hot,tyres leave a residue on the base if possible don't leave in direct sunlight
    Has it can make plexi fade and go dull as if it
    Has a foggy look to it

Stripped down my minichamps lotus 79 1/18 to try and upgrade it. Got it stripped and then managed to knock the body off the table and break one of the endplates! You couldn't make it up!

    Oh, that stuff does happen. I have destroyed (completely) a BBR F430 and a Autoart racing Hakosuka. The BBR was the least fun, the clam shell flipped open when I was trying to slide it into the box.

    I'm going to scratch build some new endplates from styrene sheet, the originals are completely flat and black in colour, shouldn't be the hardest thing I'm guessing, just have to make sure the glue is quite strong
