At the beggining I thought Jef Koons's M3 E92 was made by Kyosho because it really looks good.. Later I realized it is made by Minichamps.. Thumbs up for the Minichamps :D

really hate amazon now, the first year ill spend christmas with my niece and they mess up my order wont tell me who signed for it, no neighbours have it and they have told me they wont look into it till the 23rd as it still might be delivered, hello youve already told me youve delivered it!!!
Guys, does anybody know what is the cost to ship a 1/18 model from Belgium to another European country, more precisely Portugal? I'd really appreciate if someone can give me a link to see the costs, I'm being charged 32.50€ for a single model!!
Rafael OliveiraOk, so that's what I'm being charged (I said 32.50 but it's 32.80 actually). But isn't there any other cheaper service? I've just found on the bpost.be site that there is a service which costs 26.10€, still I think it's a lot, even from the UK there are cheaper services!

schuifelhoofdBpost 'light' (up to 2kg) is indeed 26.10, Bpost standard (up to 5kg) is 32.80. Parcelshop is the same or more, Kiala/DPD should be 14 euro, extra insurance 3 euro.

StratosWRCIt depends on the dimensions of the box mostly, at least that's what I find here in Canada.

Quick message to all my fellow DX'ers. My Daughter has been in hospital since last Monday with a very bad vomiting bug. She is has not eaten or been able to keep a drink for almost a week now. Really want her home for Christmas next week. If any of you would care to say a little prayer for her to help get her better, That would be great. Thank you friends.
VeeDub MattThanks for the update, Dave. I'll continue to pray for you and your family.

smokeyfanSo sorry to hear this dave I have been out a couple days. I will pray fight now for A miracle for her and your family this Xmas season. I believe in the power of prayer and it makes my day to see all these strangers saying one for your daughter. I look forward to the good news.

BMW Fans! - What do you guys think of the new Spark models? I'm tempted by the 2002 turbo - looks epic (but isn't cheap).
UzairI used to like Spark models until I realized they use decals instead of tampos. As a matter of principle I wouldn't get them unless its an absolute must-have model (which would be the Williams FW37 in 2015 for me).

seppukuThey alright....some fair, some not...hit n' miss, really...:)

preismanI have thoroughly enjoyed most of my Spark models. The decals are annoying, but it is no deal breaker. If the 2002 is a great car for your collection, then go get it. I think it looks good myself.

Gah it's killing me seeing all these beautiful BBR releases with price tags near $600.....seriously it's just painful. For that price I could buy an entire new 3" manifold.....hmmmm now that's an idea...
seppukuExpect $800 price tag by 2015...:)
Dec 19 2014 03:27 PM
wrx_triggerhappyoh I am sure of that. I only see prices going higher and higher. Hell even the manifold set up I want increased by $150. I pitty dah price rise...
Dec 19 2014 05:53 PM
jandro_f1With those prices that's why I am considering to stop collecting... it's killing the pasion of the hobby

In times of sorrow we think of those close to us. I was thinking of my DX brothers today. Thanks for giving love and support guys. May there be peace on Earth, peace and freedom for all.
smokeyfanI pray daily for the protection and freedom of the innocent. I am blessed to have what I have. And Dx is a nice little blessing.
