Help! Challenge of opening spring clamps CMC Bugatti 57SC?

Post by [KRAFTIG] » Sun Aug 03, 2014 8:54 am

See image below. Has anyone experienced the same? Thoughts, solutions? It seems one on either side is not responding. Very frustrating when you spend $375 on a model and simple QC check is not performed. :shame: Hopefully Collector Studio's service after the sale lives up to the beauty of their shop...

Well that sucks. Not sure what exactly is happening, but all I can say is don't force it. Doubt they'll be able to do anything about it.

A lot of the models they've had sitting for years, so maybe it just settled in a bit. I think it's time to apply force.

No this one came from an unopened box saw it first hand. They aren't open today or I would head again! Most likely next Sat, want to come?

Errrr can't saturday. But I meant it most likely has been sitting around in its box for a while. He says he sells more of the big models than the small models, so not very many.
