Have anyone build any modelcars from Minicraft?
They have a few very interesting and not very expensive 1/16 cars.

I haven't built or tried one yet, but I must admit, I have been tempted to.

What strikes me most is the unprofessional way these models look on the box art.. seam lines clearly visible and such.

Hi Richard
I have also noticed the bad quality of the boxart. That is exactely why I haven't bought one yet.

I have the '31 Ford Sedan in my stash. It looks ok in the box. I think a super detailer whould have a field day. For the price, I couldn't pass it up.
