There is a really rare model for sale ending in 6-7 hours on ebay.

Spark Acura #26 ARX-01a 55th Annual 12 Hours of Sebring LMP2

I myself was unable to find one for several years until I got one.

Does anyone know where to buy the Spark Porsche 919 Tribute tour edition (the one that set record lap at Spa)?

It seems to have appeared and then sold out before I managed to notice.

Thanks, but the price is double what it should be. It should go for 60-75 euros as it was sold at that price elsewhere just a week or two ago :(

Yeh , they were 74 euros from most sellers , which i what I paid for mine , but its like everything else ....once theyre gone the price goes up .

Ive just spoke to my buddy at my local dealership and Porsche have sold out and have the model on back order , so he cant say when they will arrive, if at all. (70 euro from the dealer by the way)........I suppose it depends on how badly you want one .

Hi chaps

If anyone trips over a SMTS XJS at a REASONABLE price - or, for that matter, an Enco Jensen variant, please give me a nudge

:D

Thank you!

Looking for the following Spark model: US001 Porsche 997 GT3 Cup No. 26 24 Hours of Daytona 2012 (sometimes incorrectly as of 2011).

Any ideas where to get it from?

I didn't have to pay way over list on the EM288B ( car #21 ) , but I'm curious if you guys think an offer of $450 US would be a figure that would pry one of these VM 288A ( car # 22 ) out of an owner's hands ? That is about my limit .

That's a lot for one of these.
They are great models but i wouldn't pay that much. Personally i'd rather wait and see as eventually one will come up

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.

^ You're probably right - Make Up is likely close to re-issuing this model and then it will be $275 .

Did you check the MINIWERKS website? I know they sell Make Up as I've purchased from Mike before.

^ Yes - thanks . Mike is great ,but doesn't deal in anything out of production although he did at one time from what he tells me . Current production models were the first pieces I got to get me started down this path .
