2x GT Spirit 1/12 Porsche 964 badboys arrived today...........
Very dissapointed the models were packed upside down and arrived broken with bits ratling about.
The model doesn't even fit together properly with the bottom of the model hanging down from the shell on one side on one model and down both sides on the other model.
The paint finish is questionable and there are fingerprints etc on inside of windscreen.
The broken bits that were rattling around inside have scratched one windscreen and presumably the case too.
I'm to disappointed to investigate.
It's like a bad otto nightmare but at £313 delivered it's all the more bitter :(
First GT Spirit experience is very sad.
That is terrible!! I looked at a Yellow 993 CS that was new, that too had a finger print on the inside of the windscreen  :rolleyes: there was no was I was buying it! I got a Blue one instead.

I hope you can get your money back easily mate,

A couple of great deals this month.

Firstly, the gem. It's the Fernando Alonso Minardi PS01, the same as the one I bought a few months ago, but this one's the US GP edition. Much rarer, and I've scoured for one ever since. Only paid 15 euros more than that other one too. Very happy. It hasn't arrived yet though, for some reason, this seller's package takes very, very long to arrive. Amazing seller though, and great models. Shipping is from Japan.

One of the other deals I've gotten was this BMW V12 LMR. Grabbed it for only 7 Euros, shipping was for free. It'll be a gift for my Father's collection ;)

Last but not least, it's the deal of the month for me. Just won this Ebay bid for an Amalgam R25 rear wing. I was going to get the front wing too, but I didn't feel like spending too much money, even though the front wing was still way below the original price. Grabbed this for only 4.25 EUR plus 7 EUR shipping. Very happy with it :) For some reason though, I haven't seen this anywhere else, so I'm not sure if it's legitimately an Amalgam, although at this price, I wouldn't mind either...

Wow that's really bad.  I was considering picking up the red version but not so sure now.  Hope this gets resolved for you.

You'll not be sorry Pontiacrich,  I have one and t's a great model - the red has a nicely replicated 'Tri-Power' engine..... :drool5:

Just be careful of the 'chrome' on the model, as it's largely chrome foil, and comes off a bit too easily for my liking! :gaah:
