Not sure why, probably dollars and cents. I know its a Minichamps but it damn good. And based on the uniqueness on the model I think its a good buy.

This model is very impressive in person, much more so that the photos available. I'll post some pics soon. Thanks for the model Dennis! :okay:
Yes very nice model, only the wheels looks like plastic with that bad painted orange :(

Long time no post so here are my latest purchases

Exoto at it's lowest... price! Black Friday sale and thank god they do free worldwide shipping now so it was good deal :deal:

Image

Also found this website called Massdrop when I was browsing Reddit. Idea is something like to connect people for bulk order via website. Very good price with shipping to my country from USA. Been eyeing this pair for a long time now. Was not sure site is trustworthy so didn't post it under "deals of the day" but seems like they shipped my models.

Did you receive the D-type yet? Careful, it's very fragile so you have to put it together like you're doing neurosurgery

take your time with it, and avoid applying too much pressure. If something isn't going in, make sure it's aligned properly before committing full force. There are two little metal sliders that attach the top of the middle portion, basically the driver's canopy, to the bottom of the chassis, and they're very fragile. You have to position the top section properly, then push the metal sliders in. I broke one of mine cause I pushed too hard.

How long did it take to receive your D-type? I ordered one during the Exoto 70% discount sale one week ago and they still haven't ship. I will follow up with them but I'd love to hear from your experience.

Mine was shipped like over a month later. It wasn't in stock yet.

Wes, your instructions sound like I might break something during assembly :shock:

Atalante, I just checked my records. The model was shipped 4-5 days after I paid but arrived around one month later due to Christmas and New Year craze. Which one did you order?
