Well this is an old post. If you had a problem car, you would've know by now....Still, every time I look at my known problem prone models, I get nervous. So far only a few of my cars have been effected.  :hope:

is there a list of zinc pested Kyosho models? this happens to older models? i have 4 Kyoshos in 1/18 (2 older ones - yellow 365 GT4 BB and a white Delta Integrale EVO 2 ...+ 2 newer models - red plain version of the Lancia 037 and blue Stratos with Wide Wheels) + im waiting to get a 512 BB in red in few days....i newer saw one of these models in internet forum in a relation with zinc pest...do you have any info ?...(i know that the BB Ferraris are from cca year 2000 ,so i consider them to "older" models :D )
i like to believe the limit is only in my hands :)

thanks Audirs6 :)...i have just the Revell 850 csi in blue from the list...i buyed it without doors in a very used condition for spare parts...but the shell is in 100% (except paint scratches of course :D)...which is maybe a rare one, yeah rare in shitty condition = crap annyway :D

ill wait for my red 512 BB to see the paint on my own eyes... :)
i like to believe the limit is only in my hands :)

Found two more models with zink pest yesterday. I went deep into my storage, and ran across two more ertls dying the slow death. So far all my effected models have been ertl, but these two had it worst than any of the others. I guess these have been around longer than the others? Kind of sucks!
