I bought this model thru Ebay. I received it new and in perfect condition. I kept in box and removed 3 times to look at it. I opened doors, trunk, etc and exercised extreme care. It came with a 14 day return policy. Yesterday I got it out to show a friend and the drivers side door will not stay closed? The door has no play in it, pin goes in and out of door perfectly but it will not latch.
Obviously for $393.00 I am quite upset and the return period has come and gone.

Does anybody have any suggestions? I am open to all ideas.

On a good note my collection has been greatly upgraded. I started with 2 Franklin Mint Camaros and now own a 1977 FM Trans Am, CMC 901, Autoart Mclaren F-1. I have ordered an Autoart Mach 1 and Honda NSX from Autoart.:)

The Ferrari is beautiful but even though the 901 has fewer parts, less detail I am more impressed with the build quality.

I sent eBay seller message describing problem. He offered exchange or refund. I didn't think it would be this easy to rectify.
I highly recommend zilvladimi as an eBay seller!

Vlad is one of the best sellers on eBay. Not surprised he handled this well.

I agree. He once readily canceled my purchase, no questions asked! :nice:

I wanted to post follow up. I sent diecast back to Vladimir. Vladimir sent new car and even paid to ship to me even though I offered to cover shipping.
The front headlight lens had popped off during shipping. It snapped back on perfectly. Model is perfect! Going to put a coat of wax on and into display case.
Even though his reputation precedes him I can't recommend him enough. He didn't have to replace since it was past return policy nor did he have to pay for shipping.
I have CMC Atlantic enroute but Vladimir didn't have in blue so I used another seller.
Anyway, Vladimir rocks!
