Mmm... S3T side skirts on a S1 - just hope I never see a real one.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

Being a builder and collector of ship models I used to report certain eBay sellers for their alleged "museum quality" models and "built to original drawings" and "meticulous to scale" on items that looked as they were carved out of a log in the Amazon. But I gave up! There are people who buy the junk anyway!

That auction may look like it is for a "model" car but this is simply, as stated before" LEFty size (matchbox/hot wheels)...

it is from the "Johnny Lightning" line. The car is a 1988 Stephens turbo but throughout every run of this mould, they have painted it to resemble just about every other earlier esprit BESIDES the Stephens turbo (1977, 1980, 1984)... do a searhc for "johnny lightning esprit" on ebay... I stripped one down and painted it correctly... looks 100 times better. or you could get the black one and take a black sharpie to the side markings and you have a really quick black stephens turbo!

As Jamie said...

I got this version from JL - Just wondering that CORGI - Who has such a good reputation for accurate 007 items - has given their name for this... <_<
