I don't wanna spoil what car I bought by putting it in the title but the brand is F-Toys.

As far as I can tell, there are only three models. A Nissan, an Isuzu and a Toyota as illustrated in the picture from the back of the box. Hmmmm which one did I go for....

Inside, the car is wrapped in bubble wrap. It had never been opened so the manufacturer must do this.

The car comes with a little trading car and the fender mirrors are separate and need to be glued on.

Lots of little details. The hood is even supposed to open forward.

The hood is VERY fragile though and snapped off when I tried to open it. You can see that there is a TON of detail in this engine bay, sadly though it won't be seen much because of how fragile the hood was.

With the fender mirrors glued on. Those were a pain because of the size.

But despite those two short comings, this is still a BEAUTIFUL model.

I paid 9 bucks plus shipping. Should you? I dunno. I wanna say no and that it's too easy to break but just look at it. Maybe I was too rough with the hood. I think it was worth it and kind of want that Isuzu next.
