Hello,

All of the cars I have bought direct from Hornby recently have come in the curved top boxes wrapped in bubble-wrap secured by clear tape. I just received one today via an Ebay seller which has the bubble-wrap secured with brown packing tape. Has anyone ever seen such wrapping on a brand-new Hornby car?

The bubble-wrap looks original (just the right size) and there are no traces of previous tape so could be factory fresh. However, my suspicion is aroused by another aspect that I don't want to mention as I'm really trying to gauge whether the car has been re-packaged for re-sale.

Obviously we get hundreds of Scalextric cars delivered from the factory - never ever received anything secured with brown tape.

But - sometimes we add extra bubblewrap to cars we send out as Scalextric have reduced the amount of bubblewrap they use now. We can secure it with whatever is handy at the time and sometimes that could be brown tape. It's not a factory original packaging though.
