For their hobby editions, they are usually in the low $100 range, Bentleys and Rolls Royces excluded. But most of the dealer edition BMWs can be had for under $65. That is not the normal price, but as Sn210 mentioned, they are on clearance. Right now this includes the M4, M6, 6GC, X4, X5, and old M5. BMW doesn’t show…
Fellow big personal luxury coupe fan checking in. I too am glad MB and BMW haven’t abandoned the segment, even if I can’t afford one. Paragon did quite well with their Bimmers, and the M6 is probably the best of the bunch. The prices you can find these for is a fantastic deal, and I’m trying hard not to add another…
Yeah, no go on the 2nd gen, at least in 1/18.
Congrats. It feels pretty cool to have a model of your own car. Like you, I’ve been close, but so far an exact match has eluded me.
I think $30 is a pretty good deal, but you should certainly have no problem getting one for under $50.
Oh, so you’re still alive?
It was Bottas that got around Leclerc at the start, not Hamilton.
That is true, but...
That’s such a cool model. And an impressively detailed one at that.
Ooh, good catch. The alignment is good, I just didn’t give the engine cover that final little push after closing it.
All I get to see every day are some busted up BMWs and Mercedes,
Accidental duplicates are a sure sign of having way too many models.
The most important thing is for you to buy what you like. After all, it is YOUR money and YOUR collection. AUTOart does make very nice models, but they are expensive as well. In some cases I feel that they justify the expense, but sometimes they don’t. So if you get one, do so because you like the subject matter, and…
I agree that it doesn’t look as proportionally challenged in your pics. But them wheels tho... I wish they would have done it with these instead.
But at least with those other cars, the C-pillar trim treatment is consistent throughout the model range. It’s only optional on some Camrys. The C-pillar has a crease that serves as the demarcation between the black roof and body color, and it looks really goofy on the cars without it.
Also: Kinja stilll sucks in 2019.
Good looking and not wearing khakis? I’d say no.
It might be the Dauer version, but I’m pretty sure the SS exists in 1/18.
I meant to send you a note thanking you for the instruction to not just cut the tape on one side of the foam shell, which is EXACTLY what I would have done.
