How low can it go!

so £1.99 + £4.99 + 83x£7.99 = £670.15 for a 1:8 replica of an F1 car.
I hope you don't seriously think this is a bargain!
Methinks this is going to get very cold!!

Awesome post OP, loving it! I'm off to get my thermals on...

Modelissimo do a 1:18 scale model for something between about 40 and 100 euros including delivery.

No its the 2008 car that Lewis Hamilton drove to victory.

I knew this'd be a rip-off when I saw it advertised on the TV last night, but they didn't advertise the full price of the mag, nor how many you'd need to buy - but £600, that's just crazy. Who'd be mad enough to buy it!?!

Grab a bargain now....

Its similar to the James Bond Car magazine...I was looking into it, but £700! Madness!! http://www.addemoticons.com/emoticon/smiley/AddEmoticons08027.gif

why do they release this sort of thing....and what happens if they get a 5th of the way through and they find out they are only selling 10 copies a month...do they cancel the balance of the issues and leave the poor people that bought in with a half finished model and a chunk iof cash out of their wallets...should be illegal

Got mine ordered at the newsagents, i know a bargain when i see one.

And he can still fit in it.

Usual negative votes from the jealous members that cant afford to throw away £670.

Pathetic.:)

Are you serious ! how can you say people are jealous for paying £670 for a toy car. What a sad life you must have.

I have a feeling it may have been sarcasm...

I wanted to build this, but waited until the issue with the front seat came out (Luckily issue two). If it had been some kind of soft sprung material/leatherette, it would have been worth £700 for the whole car. The body panels were nicely painted heavey steel.

Unfortunately the seat parts were hard plastic. That went into the recycle bin ASAP.

it was in very small print at the top of the add, £7.99 per issue after for 85 issues. laughed out loud for that one!

Imagine if you missed an issue.

Too right, bet he"s never had a girlfriend as well.lol, Well, except probably someone of the internet if you know what i mean.

Hmmm, what should I do?
Spend £670 and waste hours of my time on a pointless model OR have 6 enjoyable Ferrari track day experiences driving down a race track in a 458 Italia at 90+mph.

To be fair.

It is a lot of money for a Model Car.

However it is 1/8 Scale, and the detail is very impressive, plus its created from McLaren and kyosho, both respectable names that don't want to produce something crap to tarnish their massive names.

In any case, the other alternative to get a 1/8 Scale replica of a reasonably current F1 car, will cost you almost £2750 - £3000

Ok so these will probably be more limited and do not require self-assembly, however they are over 4 times the price, so in another word, maybe they could be called a bargain.

Remember this is a very exotic Market for 1/8 scale models, that open up and reveal so much detail. Don't even bother comparing to smaller sizes, as 1/8th is huge at almost 60cm long.

I hope this clarifys a few points.

Personally in away its a way for serious formula Enthusiast to get a very detailed replica for cheap over 85 issues, so it doesnt seem so bad. Rather than a lump sum of £600 , at least its almost like having one of those £3000 Models, so can't be bad!

Precisely the most constructive comment in this thead. Sorry but if members actually viewed the product in detail and looked at the realistic points of why this is an Issue Based Model Kit over 85 Issues it's your own way of affording a Model Kit that will come to a sum £670. £7.99 Per Issue wont hurt my pocket at all and it's some impressive that will build over time. Kyoshu are agood make and as he quoted they wouldn't put their name on some rubbishly made. All the parts are to a very good standard and in my opinion this is a good deal.

If your to naive to buy it then go get yourself a cheap Mega Blocks Mclaren from Toys R Us whilst I have this whole set on my shelf in 2012. I'll even Post my fully made set in this post in a years time!

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
