It’s been 7 years ! And the little Dave Deals figure is now available for purchase through MotoPsyco using RHIS EMAIL ADDRESS ONLY ! you WILL NOT FIND IT ON HOBBY LINK JAPAN .. $42 each plus shipping with a 5% discount on a purchase of 5 or more .. contact him at this email to place your order !
A little review .. kit is packed in a nice little see through package , easy open for removal of resin parts . This appears to be the exact same figurine as produced 8 years ago so if you have one that’s broken or missed out now is your chance to claim these once again limited run miniature statues .. the parts come sealed in cellophane and arrived in a reasonable amount of time.. Takehisa/MotoPsyco cast a different base as not to ruffle the feathers of the collectors And to make this release one of its own. I HIGHLY recommend picking one of these jewels up for future building . Quick details : the figure is approx. 2 1/4” tall , Dave’s Porsche is 1 1/4” long and the base is made of white metal measuring just under 2” square.. looks like the metal base was cast in 2011 according to the stamp plate which has the maker and a small picture of the statue embossed . A total of 6 parts in all and a tiny instruction sheet to compliment .. very cleanly cast with crisp detailing makes this a sure “walk in the park” to build ..
Setting here having coffee I decided to sling a little glue .. wow ! This requires very, very little fitting .. I think I’m going to polish the base.. the little Porsche tuck’s nearly under Daves arm with no fitting , sanding required . A little sanding on the top of the eraser and we are all set for primer / paint ..
