Love this generation of Skyline. One not often seen, but it is great Ignition makes these lesser known Skylines. While I am always interested in fun, unique colors, it is nearly impossible to pass up on a white Skyline. I have quite a few now. An added bonus is the Wantanabe wheels. Again, I have a few with these wheels. If you like the style, Ignition is the best. They get the stanced look just right, and the crisp details of the model makes them one of the best sealed resin models.

Yep too bad they became so hot that they sell out within 30 minutes apparently and before you know it, they’re on ebay for $800. I heard some people stay up to catch the release and get their model. That’s stressful
I mod stuff

I happen to see one on eBay, bought it. Then noticed every other model of this was $600+ That is insanity. If you find an Ignition model you like, just buy it. You may never see it again.

Sounds like you got it for a great price, congrats Jon ... the model looks ace as well I'm soo digging these older cars.
Yea the price for some older Ignition models are just nuts, typically I see a lot of stores in Japan asking $600 to $1000+ for them on eBay, I doubt they sell though. If I like something I'd want to buy it on release, otherwise you need a bit of luck on the secondary market.
