That IS a great point Patty but luckily as I mentioned recently ,.,,
of a collection of over 250, only about 2% had issues. And some issues were VERY minor such as a little bump in the paint here or there, but a few had MAJORLY deteriorated like my 1:24th CMC top down Horch!! Luckily I discovered it right before that model was discontinued and was able to buy another to replace it. And ive been checking it, so far so good!
