WTG Darren. That's a great way to start the C5R collection. As you add many more :lol , you'll see how much re-tooling went into this one by AUTOart. It wasn't just a different colour on an old mould. The engine and interior are vastly changed and alot of other fine details.
Congrats Darren on the first model of 2005. You sure picked yourself a fine car to start the year off with. After I had seen ACTION's version of this car, I am very glad AUTOart did eventually release their rendition of it. It is so much better in finish and details! When you have a chance to take a break from your schoolwork, I hope you can write up a review of this. I'd try to review it myself but I just don't have the same 'gift' that you do in writing them up. :cheers
Thanks, guys. :cheers
To answer your question, Darrick, I'm definitely thinking about adding more C5-Rs to my collection now. I'm pretty fond of the C5-R that won the GTS class at the Texas race in the ALMS back in 2000.
Souky, it wasn't really mental discipline that put me off buying a model for so long, it was a matter of practicality. :giggle I couldn't spend much on diecasts because I'm paying off a laptop that I bought recently (Toshiba Satellite Pro A60) to help with my schoolwork. After my last payment (next month), my diecast spending will go back to normal. :giggle
