    Ok, seriously I've seen all the colors and black looks better than red. But my favorite is still blue ;)

    Well blue isn't available, and as Mikey said the dark paint hides details so I guess I'm choosing red. Will ask CMC for a hardtop (if they have any spare ones left from other colors) as the hard top was one of the main reasons I wanted the black one. Let's just hope all works out !

    Best use of a Walmart that I have ever seen. Where do people get the $ to hoard so many cars?

    NRMA, it was the other party, the other driver lied about what happened.

    Ah I see. At least you got it resolved. Pain in the ass to wait 6 months though. The other driver sounds like a really top guy ;)

    Why are diecast so expensive in the UK? They are more expensive than here in Norway even, and here everything is expensive.

    I think it has very big range or the driver was back inside a real car as passenger.

    Well I bought the Bullitt Mustang for 235Eur from UK 1 week before Autoart announced new release hah

    The Minichamps price is nuts for the Opel imo.

Nearly got stung $200 in customs/taxes. Called them back and got them to recheck the exchange rate applied and the shipment came in 8 cents below the AUD$1000 import exemption limit. Much relieved :) Nice try FedEx ;)

    @ Darren - yes, too close ;) Not actually "that" one as I've already received the 1/12. Will try to do some pics soon.
    @ Eddy - tell me about it :) Now I just need the guardian angel to teach sellers how to package shipments to avoid damage and I'll be happy ;)
    May 26 2015 07:03 PM

    ^LOL! Tell me about it - I must have a word with my DGA too as just received 2 broken models :(

    Not to mention sellers who send the wrong models. Was supposed to receive a shipment of 4 models today - received 2 different ones instead. Hopefully they sort it out.

i have been wondering what is the difference between a MR 1/43 and a looksmart, i see the MR displays are much fancier but aren't they almost the same company?
May 25 2015 03:07 PM
  • seppuku's Photo
    Yes....Looksmart is MR's "low-end" division...:)

    May 25 2015 10:53 PM
