Our final new 1:24 scale die-cast offering is priced at $249 plus $9 shipping and service, payable in four monthly installments of $64.50.  Production is limited to just 2,500 models and they're sure to sell quickly.  Orders will be fulfilled on a strict first-come, first-served basis.

...and they picked the worst possible color to replicate it in. In my opinion a t least.

That is some nice detail, if you don't mind that there are MANY things wrong with it.

at least it HAS detail, unlike product from AMT & Revell, which usually have nothing but the raw engine.
