    I bought a new Toy, literally

    I have looked at these for years, and they appear to only be getting more expensive so I treated myself.

    I was genuinely concerned about it being a resin model, I had in my head something light, cheap and flimsy. However it's anything but that. It's substantial in weight, feels well put together and solid. And the detailing is brilliant. Would thoroughly recommend you treat yourselves too.

    Ahh ha ha, in a world of laser scanners and my 3D printer, who knows where this could go

    I might do a project thread for my actual 200 soon, and reincarnate my last one.

    It’s an Otto Mobile model, I bought from a seller on eBay. There are only 1500 but there seems to always be one or two for sale.

    They’re really nice aren’t they. A friend of mine has a decent collection of Otto miniatures.
