Why do some variants or many variants of BBR 1:43 that cost around US$200 but the door/cover engine/baggage can't be opened? For this reason, is BBR still worth to buy?

Sorry I'm still new player to this. Thxs

I think you will find most 1/43 scale models tend to be sealed including those high end premium one. There are 1/43 models where engine bay can be opened I think Minichamps or Kyosho made some of those before? Autoart also attempted with full opening 1/43 models many years ago but they only ran for a very short time.

I think the "worth buying" question is very subjective. Those 1/18 BBR (or other high end makers for that matter) sealed resin models going for $400 to $600 have no shortage of buyers so there are people who appreciate them.

I agree. At the end of the day if it's something you like and you think it looks good, buy it. Some 1/43 models shame some 1/18's it just depends on who the maker is.

F**k you Photobucket.

Agree with the above said. Worthy or not is an individual thing but there is also a limit as to what is worthed. For example, I buy those sealed BBR, MR, Frontiart  resins for $400 but I would never spend $1000 for a sealed D&G model that is no better than BBR, etc.
