At last, the most important model in my collection has arrived. Bought from a forum member for an astronomical price of 400$ + 150$ (shipping and EU taxes) almost running into bankruptcy...

The model arrived in perfect condition, but the second I opened left door, screw securing door's shock absorber fell out. A tragedy. I was devastated. Luckily, I managed to pick up the screw and today after purchasing a set of micro screw drivers and careful preparation, I managed to successfully screw the shock absorber back in place.

Very nice model, a masterpiece (except for build quality and sturdiness).

That is one expensive addition, though a nice replica too. I think AUTOart will do another run of these in the near future.

Beautiful! Congrats! I have one in black but always wanted the silver.. The only issue I had with mine is one of the exhaust tips had fallen off and lost so I had to fashion another one. Not perfect but looks ok.

my latest purchase is a AUTOart Wangan Midnight Porsche 930 Turbo! Found it a reasonable price but still cheaper than any I see listed on ebay. Should arrive this week!

Threw in a bid before I went to bed last night and got a pleasant surprise this morning :) I'm still on the fence about this model but I look forward to receiving it.

Stock photo for now.
