View Full Version : A few rare bodies...

2009.08.30, 03:41 PM

Here are some old bodies I get the chance to put my hand on...

First, the black lamborghini jota in limited edition. It's a MR01 ready set. (I sold the other I get on the bay a few month ago)

Then, the DTM mercedes, a silver D2 Mannessman one and a black Warsteiner. Still in original box unopened!!^^

And last but not least, just arrived this week-end in my collection...
The white Porsche 911 GT3.
Unfortunately I don't have the original rims but these alloys are rather cool on this pretty body. A very little used but still in great shape!

Nice black Jota! I didn't know it existed in that color! Look's awesome! Red one is nice, but there is something about the black that makes it scream AWESOME! Nice finds!

This black one is a limited (1000 pc.) MR01 ready set that used to be sold with a mini-z style magazine. But as the mini-z were not so know at this time, the book didn't sell much, so those poor black jota end their lives in the importer depot. Some shop received those as normal kit after that and they are thus pretty difficult to find. I get the chance to find two in a LHS and so decided to give them a new live. :D

Nice bodies. I have a set of rims for the white GT3 still new in the box. Been waiting to find a GT3 for myself, but no luck yet. Let me know if you are interested in the rims.

Much better isn't it?^^

OohLaLa. Se Tres Jolie (if I still remember my french).

Much better indeed. Hope I can get one someday!

C'est très joli! (but it will be said as you wrote it)

Definitely a great thanks to you traveler. I hope you can get one.
Who knows, as kyosho is releasing a few old bodies at this time and as the GT1 version is on it's way, we can perhaps hope for a new release of the GT3...

And I suspect some other Porsche are still sleeping somewhere waiting for interrest!

that looks pretty snappy... simple but really cool... :D

I have an unopened Readyset with the DTM mercedes black Warsteiner.

Any idea what the value would be? I have some of these rare bodies in readysets but I'm not sure a "pull' from a readyset would have as much value as an Auto Scale Collection version in display case.

2010.04.28, 10:37 PM
hmm... i think something 'mint' or brand new in box... would absolutely hold more value over something that isn't... don't know how much a readyset would cost these days...

if it's a black warsteiner readyset, i figure it could fetch a good price as i personally haven't come across any... back in the day, it was just an autoscale body that you put on the mr-01 chassis...

A rare kit would only have the value the purchaser will offer.
If you find the guy, it could leave for a high price for sure. But if you failed to find him...

I should add the pics of my focus now. And I'm about to get another body (that is about to get rare), the G zox 350Z. It was my first ever beater body for the club and I manage to get a new one a few days ago. This one would be much a nostalgic icon for me than a real "rarity" but definitely a great piece of my collection.

A very priceless collection indeed!
