Kyosho 1:18 lancia 037.......£124.99!!
Minichamps 1:18 rs focus....£99.99!!
makes the Sunstar 1:18 escorts seem quite good value at £61.99 lol!!

Prices have been steadily going up for a good while now. But as you said, second hand models are not making any money at all. Good for the buyer though. Last weekend, i got a UT Escort Cosworth (the pilot one) for 45e including delivery from ebay. Its not in the best shape, decals are chipped, missing lampod, missing one spotlight and both mirrors but the whale tail and windows are perfect. This is exactly the kind of models im after so i can pick them up cheap

Even 6 months ago, this would have been over £60 even with its condition. Now, just need to find another escort cosworth, and 3 more WRCs cheap............
