Talking Proud owner of 16 unopened models.

Well, to make a long story short, I just recieved 4 cases, with 4 models per case. But... the only downside is they are old cars, classics. Im not saying they are bad, but I would prefer a few modern day cars I dont know if the brands are really anything good. They are all either Revell Monogram, or AMT Ertl. They range from a 67' corvette coupe, 61' Ford rancho, 32' Ford 3 Window Coupe, 57' Chevy convertible, 40 Street Rod, to and old ass Tweedy Pie 2? and even a 00' corvette. So, how did I do? Maybe I can put a few up on Ebay, so I can get a Skyline.

How much did you pay? Amercian-made kits sell between $5 and $15, depending on the subject. They usually hover around $10.

Which Skyline do you want?

Then I say you did just fine. The R34, eh? Did all of Guiddy's pictures put the bug in your brain? LOL!

Very lucky KB.

The kits you are talking about are very hard to get here in NZ.

There is a Mustang kit that has 3 models in it by Revell that i have been trying to get for a long time but can never find.

I saw that kit at one of the stores in my town. I don't know if they still have it. It was about $22 I think.

I checked, and the only Revell model we have is an Impala low-rider 2-in-1. They said we do carry the Mustang kit, but who knows when it'll be back in stock... Sorry!

Oh, yeah. The price is $14, but I get 35% off, so it's like $9.80. Is that a decent price for you, Warren?

Works out at $25.00NZ
It sells here for about $45-50.00NZ...So its half price with out the shipping costs...what ever that would be.
