This beauty arrived about 5 mins ago




Just a shame by camera is an old hunk of junk

My first new Biante purchase and thought the packaging and such was awesome. Although it came with the front of the car taped to the front of the polystyrene box which has left sticky white bits from the tape on the front spoiler. Not to happy about that

Been working at home over the summer, so was able to keep a close eye on Trade Me, haha, got HRT for $130 and TKR for $50 (NZ Dollars). Eddie Bell is a Code 3 I got done, and stoked with how that came out. Done by Headcase Designs here in NZ.

Yeah it wasn't cheap, +$300 but worth it. We pay over $300 for latest season V8 Die Casts here.

Edit Feb 6:

Picked this up today, one of my favourite motorsport liveries this, and also one of my favourite supercar memories where the Rat won the 2001 Queensland 500 after falling off the track the lap they threw the Red and called the race, went back a lap and he had won it!

Nice stuff there.

Without wanting to be the idiot who doesn't read back one page.

What's a code 3? request? your own scheme?

Here you go Mr M, basically when you strip a die cast of its original scheme, and replace it with your own:

Code 1. This is any diecast produced by the manufacturer. It could be a mainstream toy or model, or a limited edition or ordered promotional. The important thing is that it has been produced totally by the manufacturer.

Code 2. This is any diecast that has been finished by a second party, with the knowledge and agreement of the manufacturer. Examples could be a batch of plain white or coloured models, that have had their decals added by another company, with the consent of the manufacturer. It could be castings ordered unpainted, that have been finished and presentation boxed under license. At the end of the day, two companies have been involved in the finishing process, where normally there would be one.

Code 3. This is the refinishing or alteration of a model, without the consent of the manufacturer. This description sounds almost dodgy, but Code 3 is now a recognized collectable in it's own right, and there is nothing illegal or unscrupulous in these singular alternative models. Code 3 covers a wide spectrum, and can mean simply swapping the trailers of two different articulated units, to completly changing the colour and look of a model. Basically, any model intentionally altered in appearance from it's origional manufactured look, without the consent of the afore mentioned manufacturer.
