Yeah, I like it for a sealed model overall. Some would say the wheels are slightly too large, but I think they look decent. These Sparks feel like good quality, but the weighted base really adds to that perception. Detail wise, it's adequate, interior is nice from what I can see and car is detailed.

Depending on the color, these Spark 911 R's can go for absurd high prices, but this white/ acid green was reasonable price so I can't complain. I quite like more color for my models anyways. :okay:

Yes, the variance of colour is nuts, likely due to dealer edition vs. hobby series.
