    Something I'd like but too bad, it's very rare...

    I remember back when those were fairly common models, lol...

    Also I think I like Porsches...

    Was a long time ago, around 2 decades.

    Surprisingly, nowadays the limousine diecast variant of this car is more common than the one with regular wheelbase.

    Something exotoing showed up in the mail today:

    Sadly the front shell doesn't come off on it, but it is great nonetheless.
    If I remember correctly someone on here had the C9 by Exoto, which would be amazing to have too, but I couldn't justify paying 3 times as much.
    Also I don't think I've shared this one yet:

    I had the AEG! Paid 470CAD for that. Last I heard, that XJR9 cost the most of all XJR9s available. How much did you find yours for?

    I was looking at some eBay offers for around 450-600€ (which were mostly missing pieces or banged up) and so I looked it up on the official Exoto site.

    All in all (shipping and customs fee) it was ca. 500€.

    Hopefully TSM will release the XJR-9 they teased like 2 years ago lol. I really want an XJR-9 LM winner, but holy balls they are expensive, at least a lot more than what I want to pay. Anyway a trio of new cars, all from the big brands of Minichamps, AUTOart, and Kyosho and all nice hefty diecast lol:

    My silver Spark 991 GT2 RS was damaged somehow in shipping and ebay buyer returned it to me so I took the gold wheels and swapped them out with my blue Spark GT2 RS's black wheels. Both cars look way better this way. I wanted to also swap the red interior of the silver car but the way the cars are assembled it would be too high a damage risk.

    It's a mystery how I had sold 2 models to the same buyer on two separate occasions, how the screws undid themselves in transit. Granted I didn't torque the screw until it was fully tight, I can't fathom how bumpy a ride has to be to shake a screw loose.

    Are you planning to keep it now?

    Yeah, it’s suspicious to me that the car had damage and the buyer claimed to not have opened the box at all. I examine the cars thoroughly before listing on ebay, but sadly I have no good evidence the damage didn’t exist prior to shipping. Not to mention the return box was not exactly packed well and the model box was damaged too, the corners banged up.

    I have never had an issue selling before this, though. I do plan to keep it. The damage is minimal, there is a ding in the rear wing and the passenger side window is popping out a bit so I can live with it.

    Side note, ripping apart a “high value” resin model is not something I suggest. Not at the risk of damaging it, but at the risk of seeing exactly where your money went! Up close, the interior is not so great on these Sparks.

    Yeah there isn't much going on underneath Resins. It's all about that exterior presentation you're paying for. That experiment helped me get over Ignition models.


    Thankfully I was selling through a forum to a well-known member so he wasn't asking for any refunds. It's just baffling how we order hings with no damage, but when we ship, it breaks. Sometimes I feel weather conditions impact the condition too. I bought a model that had cracked decals, and I suspect it was due to the December cold.

    I don't think I've had any issues with items being damaged in transit...

    Finally decided to get one of these old Autoarts:

    No box, but was in perfect condition for a decent price.

    Ignition has some 22Bs, but I think the headlights are off:

    It's like the headlamps are too small overall. The far ends taper downward too much, and overall the subtle furrowed look is exaggerated.

    But what if you attach the 4 giant lamps?

    Headlights seem ok, if not a little long. It's the corner lights which are too small. They don't protrude enough of the guard's corner.

    After a conversation sparked with a dude I sold 280 of my Hot Wheels to, he ended up walking out of house with the following:

    HPI Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R Z-Tune
    Ignition Nissan Skyline R34 VSpec2 Shizuoka Hobby Show
    Ignition Toyota Supra white (w/ silver BBS LM)
    Ignition Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R (white with black TE37s, wheelswapped)

    And in exchange we settled on 850 CAD....I'm thinking I should've asked 900 at the very least.

    Nice one, these old Autoarts aren’t perfect, but still miles better than many of the models out today. I have this model too and it’s one of my favorites.
