      Would be so much better without the script on the plates. They might as well put a shocker sticker on the window

      Where would one purchase these?? And also is it true that it will sell for $150.00??? If so that's for a diecast model??

      Edit: went to link. But, that's just a bit pricey. Close to $200.00 to have it shipped here in the USA.

      Strange, I think shipping was under $15

      That's an Otto Models resin model. I've got a few of their models now (Mk3 Highline & Rallye Golf) and they are really nice. I can see them becomming available for less money via Ebay once the hoopla wears off. I paid less that $110 shipped on each of mine & I'm pretty sure their release price was in the $120-$140 range. Keep in mind also; most of theirs are on a limited release basis. The .:R is a 3000-piece run, not your trpical mass-produced model.

      Looks like as if R32 is itself parked over here. Loved the model. Truly would look much more better without the sticker plates. I just wanted to know its specifications, as if it is expensive then what are the facilities provided in it ?

      These can be ordered (pre-ordered directly from Otto). Should be about $100-110 USD shipped, or less if you buy more than one.

      http://www.otto-models.com/index.php...=detail&id=162

      As for this being a resin model, the wheels roll, but that's about it. no opening features, no real undercarriage detail. Feels heavy... almost like a diecast, but then you have to remember that places like the front half of the car are solid resin. Hard to tell the difference, really.

      The magic of Otto models is subject matter... plain and simple. What details there are, are very well done. The lights, wheels interior details, paint, decals/badges, windows... all very nice.

      If you want pricy; check out some of the high-end models in 1:43. There are some I've seen that make these look stoopid-cheap.

      I'm not seeing where it can be preordered from this link or anywhere on the site.

      It looks like preorder is either sold out or expired. If you are still interested, there is a member on some of the diecast boards that does group buys from www.modelissimo.de. Although the R32 is not presently listed on their website yet, I'm sure they will have it available for purchase. With the group buy discount and shipping, it will likely only be a few dollars more than if you had ordered it directly from Otto.

      Just shoot me a PM if you are interested and I will put you in touch.
