At a quick count, Monsieur "p***l" bought 30 models for a combined value of GBP 2,300 from this one seller. Wish there were buyers like this around when I was selling on eBay !

Not sure if he would be a desperate gap filler or a rich newbie :)

so what would realistic prices be for these models? Are they all quite hard to find these days?

There seems to be a severe lack of red Gallardo in 1/43. Anyone know of any of at least Autoart quality? Obviously they existed in several forms.

I saw this Leo, but it looks a bit rough.

Looking for Rover BRM 1965 Le Mans 24h car #31. Produced by Bizarre (BZ047)

Actually I'm looking for the BRM as well. I have one already, but have a small project planned for a duplicate.

When the Rover-BRM Turbine Le Mans car was developed, it was built on the chassis of a crashed BRM F1 from the 1962 Monaco Grand Prix. As a result, the Rover-BRM Le Mans car shared the deep, negative offset rear wheels of the BRM F1 car :

Image

Unfortunately when Bizarre produced their model of the Le Mans car, they used the same shallow, positive offset wheels on the rears as the fronts. This is clearly wrong.

I was able to obtain a cheap Spark BRM F1 car, so my plan is to transplant the wheels (and hopefully the suspension) of the F1 car to the Le Mans car.

Image

As this will probably involve having to cut out some of the underbody of the Le Mans car, I'd prefer to do it with a spare car just in case I screw it up !

Guys,

I'm looking for a Maki F101C, a Formula 1 car which ran in 1975 in only one Grand Prix (Silverstone), but did not qualify for the race.

The model was released by Rêve Collection in 1:43 scale a few years ago.

Image

Image

Please let me know if someone finds one for sale, especially in Japan and in Europe, where this can be found more easily.

Since I'm from Brazil, many of the auctions placed on Ebay are not shown to me, since those auctions are not set for International buyers.

Thanks in advance!

Just had a look on eBay and there have only been two offered in the last 3 months, both by the same seller in Russia. The last one sold for US$ 119 :

That one was on my watch list but I decided to wait a little more due to its overprice.

During my searches (or hunting if you prefer :lol: ), I realized that there are more frequent auctions of this car in the japanese website of Yahoo Auctions. However, it is very difficult for me to bid an item in a japanese website.

I need to figure out how to do that, there is a lot of interesting things concerning our hobby in Japan.

You can't bid on Yahoo! Japan auctions if you don't live in Japan so you need to use some kind of service. There are many and I've used a couple but like buyee.jp: http://buyee.jp/?lang=en

Well, the search is over since Monday when I managed to purchase this model from a Japanese auction.

Now, the search continues... I need to find this Motorhome used by Emerson Fittipaldi and Ronnie Peterson dirung the 1973 Formula 1 season, built by Spark in 1:43 scale.

Image

Any help on that one is very much appreciated!

Spark Audi R18 Le Mans winners of 2013 and 2014

Somehow the Spark Audi R18 Le Mans winners of 2013 and 2014 seem to be going for ridiculous prices. Anyone know where to buy these for near-normal prices?
