Found one of my grails on eBay recently. These do not come up for sale often, and rarely in the UK. Usually £150-200. Got this one for much less in open auction.Arrived from the seller well packaged in a sturdy box. But as soon as I picked it up I felt the model moving about and stuff rattling. Upon opening and removing I only found one screw in the box. RHS window and mirror popped off, and LHS mirror popped off. Both easy fix. However the spoiler supports are beyond repair. Going to have to try and source some. Spoiler itself is fine. Contacted the seller and he has given me a partia refund which I am happy with. Still it is gutting to see a model like this damaged, (BTW return button doesnt seem to be working for me on this forum!!!!)Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

Andy that sucks......completely!!! That AS Red Bull is one of the other grails I've been hunting for so I know the feeling. I might suggest reaching out to Hurry Fast....Lars might be able to make or source some supports for you. There are few online shops on your side of the pond who might have the supports. Hopefully this can be fixed soon but at least the body survived.

Chees bud :(
Yeah thats the main thing I was concerned about! As long as the actual body was intact I can repair the rest.
I cant put up a wanted add. I have not been active enough lately to use the classified section of the forum.

Sorry about the model, that is a lousy part of this hobby.

If you use Firefox as your browser the return key issue will go away.
