For what is supposed to be a toy, they got the shape and details down pretty darn good.

Are you calling it a 1/26 because it's a Jada................

Thier boxes are marked 1/24 no?.............

Yes I know that they are over scale just like the Jada 1/64's..............

But hey what are ya gonna do???????

Good point, Lee. The Maisto box is long gone, but, on the bottom of the actual model, is the notation "Scale 1/26th." It is amazing that they didn't just label it 1/24th.

http://www.diecast-pub.com/forums2/i...howtopic=36488

There is a list of all currently affected models,I'm trying to find it.
Will post link when I get ahold of it.........



The following list is compiled from information provided by many Diecast Collectors just like 'YOU', whom let us all know about the issues they are having with a specific Diecast car. This list is complied to assist our Newer Members, to keep them informed on those Diecasts that might NOT be the great deals they might think they are when spotted on the Bay of E. I sincerely welcome your contributions, but please provide the SKU, vehicle description, area of concern, and a jpg image photo if you can provide it. The following is NOT the opinions of I, the Nutty1 all by my lonesome. While I have many of the Diecast Cancer Afflicted Cars mentioned on this list, not all of the vehicles in a single run of the individual items listed here are affected, or affected in the same areas. This list is intended as a reference only, for those who may be interested in particular cars.
