Yes. Excellent service, well packed and fast delivery to UK when I used them.

Great place, but I would look at the alternatives before ordering.

I have found ModelCarWorld to be much cheaper, due to the lower transportation price. (15€ at CK versus 7€ at MCW).

And don't forget that S143 members get a 10% discount at Modelissimo.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Yeah, it all depends on the location and the company they use. Just wanted to point out that some shops have low prices, but high postage rates.

I, in estonia, use only MCW and local diecast shops. They don't have the best prices, but transportation is way way cheaper for me.

And as it was said: They have bullet-proof packaging!

CK and Modelissimo are my go-to sites very often. I've also dealt with them face-to-face at Goodwood. The range and price is often similar at both. The 10% discount at Modelissimo helps. They charge more for shipping, but you can load a box up without paying any extra.

Well I look at the numbers and in my case:

MCW- 7€
CK- 11€
Modelissimo- 26€

Local hobby shop- 2.45€
And all Spark cars are 41-48€.
So considering that I can only afford 2-3 models at a time it is cheaper tu buy locally.

Ofcourse I watch special offers and try to get them, but MCW has had the same F1 cars discounted for a year now. Got them all last year :P

Well the package from CK-modelcars arrived yesterday, very well packed and a quick service to the UK.

Only slight hiccup was one model wasn't available (it was found to be damaged prior to shipping) and before I found out the order was packed, shipped and a paypal refund was back in my account! If I'd have known, I'd have added another to the order - never mind.

Too efficient??? - To be fair it was a Friday afternoon, so I guess they wanted to get the orders out of the door pronto....

I'll certainly look at using them again - great shipping rate to the UK.

I've used CK a few times and had no issues with any of my 1:43 cars, however i have had issues with some 1:18 from them. Model outer boxes arriving with baddly damaged/crushed corners, one or two models with damage such as broken wings. Returning damaged item's has been easy and straight forward with return postage covered by CK.

I've started using Modelissimo with the forums 10% discount for older model releases. For brand new releases I've started using Trax models in the U.K. Thier prices are competative for new releases and postage is only £3.50 for the first model, and free for each additional model.

That's good to hear.

Hmmmm, if £50 for a new Minichamps release is the going rate, I'm glad I'm after the older stuff! I'm not knocking Minichamps, they're probably the company that hooked me into die-cast models, but when I was last looking at the 'new releases' back in the late 90's £25 was the going rate for a DTM car, and I couldn't afford (or rather justify spending) that without serious saving! Now it's double! :o

Saying that - if they were to produce an off the shelf 1991 and 1992 Dallara F1 for £50 - I'd buy them both! :lol:

In 2008 the DTM models were £25 new from Trax and they honour the price it's at when you order it.

I've had the same experience a year ago. I ordered 4 cars of which only 2 arrived. The others were refunded. That meant shipping cost went up per model. :(

Being very un-aware here :?
How do I get a 10% discount at Modellissimo?
Have been buying cars off them for years now, but have never been aware, that we could have a discount as members......damn.
Can someone fill me in on how I get it?

Well for starters you have to order direct not via eBay.

At the end of your order type " I wish to claim 10% for Scale S143 forum users and it will come to pass".
Cheers,
David

I used them for one of my 1:43's - delivery was a little slow and I had to send a follow up email after 2 weeks as had heard nothing apart from an automatically generated email.

Model arrived after 4 weeks, was very well packed and they did get back to my email eventually.

Windows were slightly yellowed also, so check the pictures thoroughly before ordering as chances are the car you see will be the car you get.
