Thanks for posting this video Russell.

While watching this video two thoughts occurred to me:
1 - I thought more construction/painting elements of building our toy cars were mechanised. It would appear that it is still a very labour intensive process.

2 - £40 is not an unreasonable amount to pay for a good quality car when considering the process shown in the video as well as shipping and retailer overheads. (Less than £30 is even better!)


Good. Now I am convinced of that I shall pre-order the Fly Lotus 78......


Happy Days,
Philip

That is mad, I thought machines done 90% of the car, not 10%.

I still don't see then why a carrera car cost £29.99 RRP and Scalextric and Ninco want £40+ in fact they want more than £29.99 for the lower detail SR cars.

You can see now why all the manufacturing has gone to China.

If the sell the same number of cars they they make extra revenue - they can also sell less than Carrera but still take more money in.
