    Congrats Chris!  I'm with you both.....kind of like, what?????  Hey, who knows, but you got a good deal.  My wife runs a mail order business, and shipping kills her.  The heavier and further away just pushes the cost up and up.  Oh well.  Enjoy the kit!

    Ciao for now

    First,congratz on the deal!

    If this was some individual and not a major corporation,and unless he scored the model for free he likely took a poors mans bath.If  this was a major online retailer they could be getting a preferred customer deal  from USPS,but i agree that is unusual! 

    Hey thanks for the congrats! 🙂

    This was an individual that was selling a few kits (I checked his other items).  I wish I would have gotten more because they were a great price and looked like they were brand new.  The decals were in great shape and he had the glass in a sandwich baggie.  A Bobby Allison Golden Miller car went for $23.

    He had the shipping price in the action at around $7 so I assumed this would cover his shipping cost.. I hope he wasn't surprised when he went to ship.

    Last night I won a Morgan Shepard Citgo car, still in shrink wrap, for $10 shipped.  I hope it is in great condition too.  The seller had something like $5.50 for shipping figured into the auction. 

    Most of these cars are way over priced IMO but there are some deals out there.  Maybe they were hoping the bid war would get them more money.  

    I haven't shipped anything in a while but if I sell one of these I'm going to figure $13 into the shipping price for sure.

    great work on a beautiful race car! If you are not aware, the 1:1 was recently discovered and they are trying to crowd fund a restoration. 




    Thanks Tom!  No, I was not aware of that.. funny thing is I could never find a real pic of the car represented on the box art.  I finally came to the conclusion that the Tamiya kit was based off the video game?

    always like this car yours is so clean it really looks good. I've got a couple to build in the future 

    Thanks Jason!  Mine looks better in person and I am sure they all do because I wasn't to keen on doing it from the pics I had seen but was impressed after finishing it.  I wish I would have picked up a couple more when they were more available because my source was selling them for $20 shipped.  But I do have another one to build.  I'm think of building it in silver instead of white.

    I'm about to take the plunge on one of those spray booths....

    I've watched Chris's (hpi guy) video on the subject and it definitely sounds and looks interesting... I plan on getting the one with the LED lights and duct work option.... 

    Do yourself a favor and get a Pace.   I bought a Testors for about the same price and the quality can't touch the Pace for about the same price:
