Also got in my AMT Jaguar XJ220.  Less than $10 including the shipping.

I got the same kind of deal on mine from e-bay.  I'm surprised these things are going so cheap; it looks like an awesome kit.  I think getting a clean installation on the glass is going to be challenging though.

I only wish that this kit had been molded with clear glass instead of the smoky clear.  It's still a nice kit.  I built one way back when, but it went with my other kits.

I think that original Tamiya Mini is actually a little small for 1/24 scale, if I remember discussions about it.  ROG is releasing another kit right now - supposed to be around real soon.  

 

Since you posted your Countryman, I have been seeing that same color all over!  That PE set looks really neat, too.

I feel like I may have wasted my money on the PE set because the Tamiya kit is THAT good. The kit has a PE fret with all the logos already. The grills are cast with the openings open and look better than the multi-piece PE grill. I'll work up more comments once I start the build WIP here.

I'm shocked!  I love these old Heller Citroen trucks. I have them all but who can pass up an opportunity to get another copy? So I bid reasonably often, but never win.  So imagine my surprise that I won two of them in separate auctions today.  The Normandy for $16.50 and the Bordens truck for $22.72.   I lost the Hotel Taxi short bus version which sold for around $50. That's okay!  Now to go sit out by the mailbox!

Saw that Hotel Taxi - that's one I hadn't seen before.  They are neat subjects and it would be fun to do a stock one and a hot rod one.

Don- I got the Normandie as a parts car. I want to use the wheels and tires on another build. I may ask Al Raab if he can cast them since they're pretty unique kit wise. The drivetrain and chassis would be cool on a rat rod project since they're odd.  I wasn't going to take anything out of a kit when I only had one of them!

 

Erik- Beware of the Hotel Taxi. The one I have has issues with the bus body. Loads of sink marks on the outside where there is detail on the inside. It looked like enough of a pain that it would be easier for me to scratch build the body, using the kit part as a pattern.

 

Still, I love those old Hellers!  They are detailed with a lot of chassis parts, kinda spindly like the old Revell kits!  I am watching to score one of those old Mercedes panels like Richard showed us recently.
