just got one today at a diecast store I just found today, and it's the larges I've seen about 4 times larger than my local GW

got it for $40 AUD coz it was on sale, reg price was $90 AU, also had 959 on sale but I didn't have cash 4 both, I'll go back in a few weeks and see if any left :cheers

I got the metallic green one with the solid rims and blower

not a bad model for the money, and I would be saying that if I paid the full price :cheers

Engine is decently detailed, drive belts is plastik but has the grovves on the inside, cylinders r wired, not 2 sure bout the battry as I opend it when it was dark so I have to rely on a house light to try to see all the details. lights are quite nice, but hedlights don't pop-up and the back-up light has 2 large mounting posts, looks like 2 black holes in the light.

interioir seem quite nice, everything on centre console is done nicely, dash is quite good also, seats have a soft feel to them, fair bit of chrome on interior and exterior. no seatbelts though ( dunno if real vettes were same) exhausts r done quite nicely, boot detail???, well there is no boot door, boot is accesed thru the cabin, behind the sets, not much to see there

wheels r chrome solid design ( meaning you can't see any brake detail) , tyres r branded, loking on the inside part of the wheels, u can see the is disc bakes 4 front, drums 4 rear, discs/drums rotate wif wheels but calipers 4 front remain fixed, as good as some AUTOart :cheers

I am very happy with this model and may be getting some more vettes and the 959, quality on par with AUTOart( panel gaps could be bit tighter) and I paid the price of a Bburago 4 it :cheers

who else has a Exoto/Motorbox vette?????
