What a JOKE.

I think they must be kidding with the price it looks to me more £10 cheap nasty toy than over £100 slot car and how come the price difference between models? that cover over the back wheels can't has cost £16. Sorry but this is dreadful.

a credit to the industry.

Good job Hornby don't sell well made cars for £15 isn't it.

I suppose a can of Xmas Silver Spray and modelling putty you could make a Boxster look like a 196...

Mr Croker,
My dog could make a better model of this car.

I am sorry but it makes me mad when a company think they can sell any old rubbish and say their only a hundred cars so they are !!!!!!!! each. How stupid do they think we are?

I'd say they are just following the very fine example of the Italian supecar makers who, especially in the 70s, turned out a succession of dross and to hide the dodgy engineering charged so much money for it only rich fools could afford it.

Thinking about it, a good few UK specialist car makers have followed a similar philosophy too.

As with the £15 "toy car" from Hornby and the £45 re-livery from Fly, if you don't want it , don't buy it, but don't ridicule those who do.

If you navigate to find the full range of bumslot cars, you will find that this model is one of their most accurate and good looking vehicles

Scott - maybe a reread of my post will reveal that the Hornby car gets a big thumbs up from me. Extremely thinly veiled in sarchasm.

I didn't mention Fly so I guess that is your axe to grind. Personally I like the Fly range and occansionally pickup a model when they are around nearer the 25 quid mark.

In fact I did call into question anything anybody wanted to buy just the fact that i agreed that the car doesn't justify the price. If you want to buy it, or anybody purchases one, I won't think any more or less of them.

Whether a person subscribes to "Max Power" mag is a much better statement on their life style choice don't you think?

I having had and used a 1975 Ferrari Boxer, I know your are wrong. It was a great car one I would have any day over anything being built in Japan today. It had soul and was the most exciting thing I have ever driven.

It funny because I was only thinking the other day I would like another one.
