Packed with just newspaper and some junkie plastic, seriously???
Both model and packing box are still in good shape so cannot really blame the customs or postal workers. There were no bubble wraps on the model box besides the junkie papers shown above:
The poor car did not have any cushion nor foams nor bubble plastics inside to absorb all the shock so obviously it took all of it and resulted in a big crack, which is beyond repair:
Windscreen and engine cover flying everywhere and must have bounced around during transit obviously:
Other broken piece fell off the model not sure what it is:
I did not even bother unwrapped the plastic wrap so I left it the way it is. I have not contacted Paypal yet because I am planning to have it sorted out with the seller. He has been replying to my message but very slowly and have not gotten it resolved yet as it seems to be some communication issue.
The seller asked me if I wanted to send the damaged model back and I told him only if he refunded me the return shipping as it is clearly not my fault due to the poor packaging. I am still waiting.
This is a must have model for me, especially after I saw it in the flesh. And sadly he is the only one that has it with a good price and in this color that I like best. Other sellers have it but not in the color and is $100 more. What would you suggest? Get the refund and move on or take another risk to ask him to pack better? Thanks for reading.
