They are this price and more secondhand on Ebay, mainly from Japan.

The coachbuilder series of models from Tamiya are top quality kits. They have been discussed a few time on the forum. I don’t have one but would like one if I had a bit of spare cash.

Regards

That's 3 times their original retail price!

ModelZone in Sutton, Surrey were doing them for £120 at about that time.

They are brilliant kits and very accurate, See here for more details. I purchased mine back in 2003 (I think) for just £140 delivered from Japan. That now seems like a bargain!

RRP : £385.00
PRICE: £349.95
(You save £35.05)


What a bargain (if you already have one)  I'm so glad I purchased one of the originals and still have it boxed and unbuilt. 

I always knew Caterhams were an appreciating asset.  Anyone want to make me an offer I can't understand and save some money?

Only kidding (Oh, OK, half kidding!)

Looks comparatively good value.

I really would like the cycle fender BDA one. 

Do they come prepainted ?
