I've just acquired a Carrera 27122 Red Bull RB1 which is fitted with the wrong mirrors, although they're a good fit and colour match. I don't recognise them and I'm intrigued to know what car they came from originally. Does anyone know? The only identifying mark is "podium" tampoed on the top surface.

I think you're reading them upside down, it's actually wnipod - pronounced "weenypod", it's the latest device from Apple designed for toddlers....


Sorry I can't help, if you don't know I'm not sure who will.

In a moment of clarity, I remembered where I'd seen them before: Scalextric's Williams BMW FW26 (C2583/4).

What you have there is a very rare model........straight to Evilbay with that one I suspect

It came from Evilbay, described thus: "This car was purchased as part of a job lot, I have described it as used, although the car itself shows little signs of track time..."

I think the seller must be registered blind, as, just for once, I agree with a description; it does show little signs of track time. Instead, it seems to have spent its time being used as a football. Rear wing held on with Blu-tack, loads more Blu-tack stuck all around the crown and pinion (why?) and a dodgy soldering job internally on the wiring. It was an easy fix, but new mirrors are hard to find and have just cost me £5 as part of a spares pack only available on eBay Germany.

EBay must be the world's largest and most concentrated group of scammers, liars and con merchants. Don't you just love it?
