I know there are more out there, C70s amongst them. I'm going to dig around some more and see if I can get minichamps and others to let me post some of their pics in our Gallery section.<P>George

That's the one! Damb thats a sweet ride.<BR>I'd really like a 850R model if anyone is selling one. I found a British touring car 850 Saloon (1995 season I think) from Tamiya that is 1:24 scale put together plastic model that is awesome, bought a few months back for something to do this winter. I know those kits are good, I put together an amazing Nissan Skyline R34 GTR Loctite/Zexel JGTC race car that is quite detailed, even had to assemble a rollcage and put it in! Makes me feel like a better mechanic than I am!(considering I built a race car <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> ) Thinking about tackling a remote control trainer plane or gas powered Impreza Nitro car this winter... the car would be much easier...<P>

Thanks for posting the pics of your two models. I see my Christmas "wish-list" shaping up already... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

I received my XC90 in the mail! Yay! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>However, the driver's seat-back is broken! Boo! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> It snapped off while in transit, I suppose... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>I have a call into the company to get a replacement, but what with the Labor Day Holiday weekend, I suppose I won't hear from them until Tuesday. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"> <BR>If only the doors opened I could glue it back on, but I can't. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>Anyone ever receive one of their models in damaged condition?<P>

I'm guessing it's a Minichamps. You could try to take it apart. There should be two Phillips Head screws on the bottom, and then simply pop it apart (do it with care!). You could probably pop it all back into place if you get it apart. I've taken some apart before to swap wheels and such.

Thanks.<BR>I could try that but I think I'll wait & see what the rep tells me on the phone.<BR>I'd rather have a 'pristine' model.<BR> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>Unless she tells me that I can keep the 1st one & she'll just send me a new one. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> THEN I'll take it apart & glue it. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>
