TFS Josh.

The Ferrari release makes me really excited. I will definitely buy a set.

I wonder how this will affect the prices of the series 1 and 2 release, including the 330 P4, what do you guys think?

I'm sure the price will drop, especially if the new release have better quality... but it's not going to change the rarity of the older cars, so things might not be that simple.

Knowing how the Japanese do their business and how much importance they place on quality control, I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing improvements soon. Unless that's of course the new batch of cars are already made, boxed, and ready to be shipped. There's not too much time between now and the November release of the Skyline GT-R, so I'll be cautious about them. As for Ferrari #7, hopefully there's enough time to have the new QC standard enforced and implemented.

Thanks for the recon report, Josh. These Ferrari's are starting to become a love/hate thing for me. I love seeing the tooling sharpened up on the last set compared to 1 & 2 but I only picked up 4 examples from set #7. My goal was to have an example of each model and I guess I don't really warm up much to the racing marks, especially when I already have the type in a road version. But again, I am up for the improved models though #7 was the first one I wasn't all in on.

Shame to see those QC issues popping up. Especially on the Brit set with so many desirables. I guess we'll see how good Kyosho is at kicking some peoples butts and getting that crap straightened out.
