It appears to be pre-assembled, but I'll know when I get mine and let you know.

Thx Charlie,

Do you know if Is this a model to be assembled or a built 1:43 scale diecast?  Description makes a reference to "plastic models need to be assembled..."

In my other life, I collect old toy trains.  I'm building a 24 x 32'
layout on the 3rd floor of our house this winter.  Someday I'll post links to a website showing it finished.  I'll likely meet up with the Grim Reaper later that same day, but that's another story.

There's a thread on an O Scale toy train list right now concerning good sources of O Scale cars (approx 1/48).  People were recommending "American Excellence".  I had never heard of them so I browsed their site and was astonished to see 7,000 different models available.

MANY OF THESE ARE EXPENSIVE, particular for a skin-flint Corvair owner, but look at these:

Corsa Coupe:

Rampside: https://www.american-excellence.com/index.php?p=details&i=200795

Greenbrier: https://www.american-excellence.com/index.php?p=details&i=200794

Monza Convertible:

On the last one, it looks to me like someone named "Lucky Die Cast"
bought the old Yat Ming dies.

The first 3 are too rich for my blood, but perhaps the prices will drop over time.  I wasn't aware they were even out there.

Some of their other non-Corvair offerings are amazing.  Enjoy.
