I love Taobao. I can order cheap models, and even with shipping, it remains fairly cheap. It’s also easier to order quantities at a time.

I ordered 15 models, and with shipping, it averaged out to about $11 shipped a pop, which was alright when I ordered them.

This interesting short car hauler. (seems like it’s supposed to have a trailer, but doesn’t.)

It came with a crappy little 1/64 helicopter?
