eBay...of course! But you can't use the Top speed base. the cover is smaller. FYI..once you remove the car from the base you can see your number on the car. Dan has #125, I have #222 (if I remember correctly) of 999.

I am using cases from displays2go. I am currently converting to this case. The cover is 13” x 7” x 5.5”. It allows me to display the model with doors, hood and trunk lid open And there is more room around the car, so it doesn’t look cramped. The base is high gloss acrylic and is routed to accept the cover. The cover is bent acrylic with bonded acrylic end caps. Very high quality.

Hi Shadowawk Me and CDpond got it from this seller WOODYMODELS on ebay. Send the guya message and make him an offer of $100. US shipping included. Tell him that Frank from Montreal referreded you and also another friend from Calgary bought it for him.

Once accepted and you send him the funds it takes less then 14 days to receive it. I car is well packed.

Good luck

The nice part is that this vendor has the item set up so you can make an offer against the listed price. That's where you'll make your offer of $100 all in. He'll then accept the offer.... and as Frank will tell you, eBay automatically adds a $10 shipping fee to the final price, so instead of $100 you end up paying $110. But no worries. As soon as the transaction goes through, the vendor then credits you back $10. So you will only pay $100 total for the model and shipping combined.

Thanks CDPond and Frankmar. I looked at the eBay page and I don't see how to request a color change? Did I miss it or are there just the two versions?

There are only two versions. A red body with black heritage stripe, and a white body with black heritage stripe.

The model manufacturer orignally showed a black version in their product catalogue, but it never came to fruitition... and they don't return information requests. But, regardless, the seller that Frank pointed you towards is great to work with and is very responsive to messages to him via his eBay presence.

Oh Mike, now what have you done.... lol I must have spent a couple of hours on that site. I found the CAT 797 Haulers that I saw so many of up in the oilsands, and even the 1930's Oliver tractor I learned to drive on when I was a kid working on the neighbour's farm. Joking aside, thank you for sharing the link. A great source for many things.

@CDPond

right!! It’s crazy awesome the amount cool stuff they have. I’ve ordered a few times from them. No problems and fast shippingWatch out when you sign up for their email they send you emails that “show” what they have...and you’ll discover things you don’t realize you MUST have.

@frankmar watch out man!! They have tools to fix up your 1:18 scale. Mods at 1:18 scale!!!
Btw meet Tony!

OMG, Trump is going to put a surtax on imported cars from Germany. I got mine from China and 10 days was here, I already did the first Oil Change. LOL
I don't know if CPOND got his, (he should have). With XMAS it will be delayed. Good luck.

I'm reading a lot of horror stories of people in my exact situation. It's being shipping through DHL.
Very good chance they lost it.

Yup, got it, and I've created my punchlist of mods that I'll be performing on it. I'll be creating a thread that follows the process where I transform it to look like my vehicle.

I received mine in the mail the other day. The one on top is a Honda S2000. I used to own a 2009 one and loved it. They are no longer in production which is what brought my attention to the Spider.

Nice, but I heard Honda is bring back the S2000, with little cosmetic changes.

Interesting, I looked around before buying a few months ago and found no indication of that. Granted I'm not at all connected when it comes to those kinds of things. In any case while I loved the S2000 when I had it I like the Spider better. It has more character as well as far better performance. That said I am not above owning both at some point...

A month and a half now, mine still hasn't arrived. :( The DHL tracking number says the parcel was scanned in Canada on Dec. 19th, but after that the trail goes cold. Maybe it's stuck in customs.
