I just got a good deal on my second Z8 (I was planning to sell my first), but to my suprise, the new one I just bought also has a crack on the headlight cover! :crying

This seems to be a serious problem with the Z8s, since it's the third one that I have seen with such a problem (other than the problem with those pop-out rockets that doesn't retract back). :ranting

Anyone have similar problems with theirs?

If anyone plans to buy them, make sure you buy it in person, otherwise, you may have to deal with returning it or claiming insurance for the damage.

Oh man, that's messed up. I'm sorry to hear.

Did you contact the manufacturer about this problem? I'm sure they would address this accordingly.

gee...I am sorry to hear that too...
it's such a pity that Kyosho didn't have good quality control in this car.. :ranting

I just figured out that my Tamiya F50 also have some problem..
I had soo much problem opening the front hood. It doesn't opened very easily..
Last day, I just realized that there is a small paint chip in the middle of the hood or something.. :crying :crying :crying
It's not very big..but it's not perfect anymore.... :crying

I contacted the seller and he said he will exchange it, so hopefully, I will be able to get one without problems <fingers crossed>

Mars, have you thought of touching up the paint chip ? To smoothen it, gently use a rubbing compount to smooth it into the rest of the surrounding paintwork. :cheers

Hope it works out ! :cheers

Just wondering, has anyone thought of trying using thermaform clear plastic to replace any cracked clear plastic ? The thermaform sheets can be found in some good plastic model shops. I bet this can replace many cracked clear plastic pieces especially parts that cannot be found anymore. Just a thought. . .

where I had the chip is not very visible...and it's in the gap between the hood and the front bumper..it's going to be hard for touch up...
but thanks for the suggestion... However, I don't exactly know how to use that rubbing compound...can you please explain more in detail? :confused
Do I first got the right paint color.. Then, use that rubbing compound to make it smooth??? thanks in advance... :cheers
