Well.. went to close the blinds across from my computer desk and while i was leaning over my polo shirts left sleeve caught the end of my AUTOart Orange Lambo GTR's wing and slung it tumbling to the ground :crying :crying . I picked it up right away as anyone here would! :giggle .. and inspected for damage.

The Damage!.. It broke of its right mirror and the rear wing! not to mention the engine cover door came off and the right side metal bit has snapped so i only have one swivel point when i open to have a look at the engine. No super glue here but may have to source some. Can re glue the wing and mirror no probs but fixing a busted metal hinge part is not gunna happen :\.. They never feel the same after an accident :\..

That sucks!!!! :scared

Try emailing Autoart for a replacement engine cover. The rest of it can probally be super glued back into place. :cheers
Would you have the faintest as to what they may charge for a replacement engine cover? :confused

Sorry to hear about the latest mishap .

Maybe its time you started thinking about a display case large enough for your collection.........better that than have any more wrecked cars .

Good luck with AUTOart customer services .

Ouch! Sorry to hear this. Do give AUTOart a try. They've been very accommodating and I'm sure they will do as much as possible to help. I'm very clumsy which is why I don't keep models around where I have to work or move around alot. These mini-disasters would be an everyday occurrence for me otherwise. I hope you get the GTR back in proper shape.

I always liked the black wheels on that Lambo, the wing could be used for a custom too. Look on the bright side! If you can't fix it, it will make a decent parts car and you can always get a new one since they're still being produced.
