Pricing in the age of CV19

So due to the current situation, it seems shipping is currently a bit of hit and miss and the cost has increased. But what about pricing? Don't know if it's a world wide thing, but I notice the pricing has increased in shops over here in Australia. Whereby some of the sites I get my models use to ha...

Re: Shipping in the age of CV19

Re: REVIEW: Apex Replicas Nissan Altima Kelly Racing

I have seen other issues raised by collectors here in Australia. They include the v8 supercar and Rabble logo missing on top of the no 15 graphic for the 2018 Castrol Racing Sandown 500 retro round car. Lucky the one that I got has that. Quality assurance for the diecast company here isn't that good...

REVIEW: Spark Porsche 935 # 70

In 2018, to celebrate Porsche’s 70th birthday, they decided to do a modern take of the 935. They used the 991 GT2 RS as the base and the end result is a very nice and true interpretation of the 935 race cars.

Re: Shipping in the age of CV19

Have you contacted CK? As per my post earlier, I had to contact them a few times to get the "correct" information for shipping in the current condition. As an example, they didn't ship my order until 1st week of June and it took over a month to get here which was twice as long.

REVIEW: Apex Replicas Nissan Altima Kelly Racing

When you mention the car manufacturer Nissan to a motorsport enthusiast what model does that come into mind? Nismo, Skyline R32 - R35 GTR, Zed cars and the Silvia. Nissan has done very well with these models throughout the motorsport scene, from touring car racing like the old Group A rules to curre...

Re: Shipping in the age of CV19

Yep that's the same email I got. Funny cause i contacted them prior to my purchase back in early/mid may if they still ship to australia (modelissimo didnt hence cancelled my orders without telling me). They responded they still do, so I went ahead with my order. And now looks like I have to pay ext...

Re: Shipping in the age of CV19

If you brought anything from japan, the only shipping option is DHL. EMS and SAL will not ship internationally. Found this out 1 week ago when I brought something from Japan and the only shipping option available was DHL. At least it got delivered today. Also received an email from CK yesterday ment...

Re: Post Your Latest DIECAST Purchase

Nice pair! I love the colour too! Resin, sealed? Yep, they are both openable, including the boot lid. Those Holdens look awesome, shame the company is no more. Kind of but not really. After they stop making the commodore in 2017, all holden got was gm rubbish from gm korea. I never owned a holden b...
