If its dealer edition, then its probably ok. But I wouldnt really pay extra just for a different color.

@Beeman: How are you getting them? The Dealer Edition Bentleys are worth it I think. They come in Bentley boxes and are not sold in stores. I want the Arnage pre and post facelift.

@Blackadder: I cant even think of a proper clue for it. Haha. Just wait for it.

@planet rocker. You definitely needed this one more than the kid. Looks like Maisto has done a really nice job with this one. I wish they had made one in 1:18 too. Few days or weeks ago I read it somewhere that Maisto will stop making any new models in their Premier collection for now and will only produce what they have under development. Its because of the rising prices of metals. I hope they really bring out the BMW M5 they have shown on their website.

Hey Rahul. Though I dont collect racing cars, Ive come across this DBR9 all over most scale model forums. I hear the detailing is crazy and its very sought after and a must have for racing car collectors. Im sure you're in love. Cool pics. Whats the effect used for the last one? Enjoy your new eye candy.

Thats a cool looking model Rahul. Any shots of the engine and interiors. I would love to see those pictures. How much did this model cost you. I always wanted one.

Beemer: Yea the detailing is absolutely insane, and Im definitely in love!! I used a blue tint feature for the last one. Could you post a few links to these forums you were talkin about?

blackadder: Sadly the doors and hoods dont open at all..I have no idea why they seal the body shell, possibly to save a further increase in price. Its a price to pay for the crazy exterior detailing. I picked up this particular model from online in the US, it cost me around $77 including shipping.

What!?! No opening features?!! Are you sure. There should be something holding the doors and the bonnet and the boot shut. A friend of mine has a Subaru rally car by Autoart and the detailing on it is like crazy. Everything opens and it was only for Rs. 3500. $77 is like crazy money for no extra features.

Yea even I was surprised at first but to my disappointment it said "sealed body shell" on the box so that confirms it...I guess thats a lesson to check that before buying one online.
