Wonderful. The questions asked and the clarity of the answers is superb.

When money is no object, why not seek the best in the world? I appreciate their commitment to accommodate any request. They deserve high praise for levels of quality unmatched in scale replication, great video.

Well, I bought a 1:43-scale model of a 1968 Corvette in chrome from them.

After some time, I noticed that the chrome was showing blisters, especially on the rear deck.

I contacted Amalgam and they sent me a new model, that had the same problem.

Contacted them again, telling them that their quality-issues are not addressed and sending pictures of the blisters....

Very nice people, and the third model was alright......so far....

 

So asking me if I would buy a model from them if I had the money ?

Well, I honestly would give it some really good thought.

But apart from that, the prices as mentioned in the video are totally absurd and out of this world.......... Serious  

 

But then, even the highly respected EMC played some nasty tricks on me with models that were not perfect.

I have only one Amalgam, an early issue 1/43 formula race car. I likely won’t buy others at these prices. Great video. Thanks JK.
