And now for something different...

After seeing Josh using his (very clean :omg: ) microwave pics, first I laughed, but then I thought heeej that looks cool :10:
Wouldn't be fun to join in?!?!

Great tip to clean the microwave (if you want :nice: )

Put 150 ml water and then 4 tablespoons of vinegar into a cup, press on for 5 minutes and then let it sit for 2 minutes.. Take the cup out ( can be hot!) wipe the microwave off, and then you've got a clean microwave.. Who knew you get to have such great cleaning tips here on DX :giggle:

OK, I think you are serious Affi, and I think this is a fun idea. I just opened my newest arrival today in our kitchen, and snapped a pic in the microwave...

Yeah. I thought I had missed out on these and was gonna settle for the Minichamps when it comes out. Then a new one came up for $200 and I thought an extra $50 is worth it when it looks so much better than the Minichamps. Especially the perforated vents over the front wheels, that's really what does it for me...

Yup, I got one from the same seller actually. Just got mine today! Unfortunately the front splitter was in 4 pieces...so I'm going to try to repair it. The seller was too nice to me, so I don't want to have to pay or have him pay for shipping. I'll attempt to fix it, and go from there :(

Hmmm that is weird... You think it fell off during shipping and then broke while rattling around? Or do you think it was detached when it was shipped? Mine had 2 taillight lenses detatched which was an easy fix...

He was a really nice seller. But mine had a couple of the screws nearly stripped out, making me think it wasn't truly "new in box"
