New resin brand by China called "Engup Models" Their first debut is the Ferrari FXX-K. http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=45267260704&spm=a310v.4.88.1
Packed up half my collection and sent them back to India. It would probably take another 4 years for me to go back and assemble them all back into a display case.
neo_natashaYeah that's a long time. But I have no plans of settling down here at the moment. So for now I would want all of them back home ready to be assembled. And I sent the most precious ones now.

CreepyVanManAre you moving soon though?
Today, 02:31 AM
neo_natashaNope, after 3 or 4 years. But problem is I cannot take all my models at one go once I move. So I send it back in batches along with people I know who are traveling back.

I honestly have to say st martins models is maybe the best diecast shop, it's small but the guy who works there, Laurence, he is awesome, and he also gave my sister a lesson on drama, because he is also an actor and teacher, I ended up buying an auto art Porsche 911 gt2rs in silver
a-vent-a-doorLol yeah my Porsche was supposed to be 115 pounds but then it went to 84 pound which I was quite happy about, but yes very expensive, but nice

Guys - please vote for your DX MOTM for Q2, http://www.diecastxchange.com/forum1/topic/160034-dx-motm-q2-2015-voting/ thanks!
you know things are bad when the autoart ford gt and alfa 4c costs 169 € here in europe...
lateapexThats not going to be the price in the end, they are not worth that.

///M meisterThis hobby is slowly getting worse price wise. Price gets higher and in some cases quality is declining. I also feel for the greek people right now too, their situation is a perfect advertisement for why the EU doesn't work in its current state.

For my fellow american board members, Happy independence day! Take a moment today and dweel on what a price we paid for that independence, the price we have paid to keep it and the reason that it has all been worth while. And then ask yourself what you can do to keep it as out foinding fathers envsisioned it.
Anyone taken apart a Norev 997 can't see any screws at the rear and it won't prize apart
AUTOart Reventon (matte grey) & Kyosho Veneno Roadster (metallic red) coming next week !! Can't wait to add these to the bull stable !
In the process of paying for my Cooper S. Got insurance already, hopefully I can pick it up Monday or Tuesday. Can't wait!
StratosWRC2007, so R56 I guess, which is the second generation. I'm no expert though

smokeyfanIs this your first car? Have fun, there are upgrade performance boost chips for the computer that bypass some of the Tree huggers chicanery and open the horsepower more out there. Probably at least 25 Hp for the cost of a Autoart. Since it is no longer under warranty you will not void anything!

StratosWRCActually I get an 18 month powertrain warranty so I figure that'd give them a good reason to throw a faff. I drove the standard mini and it has something like 120 hp. Felt pretty sufficient. This one's got 50 more
