Not cheap are they...
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.
That's 3 times their original retail price!
I paid £199 in about 1990.
R.I.P. SLR No.27.
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!

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 ?
