RS Focus 2016 - 1/43 scale model

I purchased one of these scale metal models three weeks ago in the UK. I checked today and the Ford dealer has doubled the price as they have now been discontinued.

So as and when they arrive in your local dealer, if you want one don't hang around.

They only come in one colour, Nitrous blue and look to be in limited production.

I would be pleased to do that if I could work out how....

I managed to upload it ok to the site from my computer, then I was unable to attach to the post. Any help or pointers appreciated.

I know you don't generally remove things like this from the original packaging but I'm just so curious to know if the doors and hatchback door opens or not.

Like you I never remove the item from the box. Looking into the plastic case I think the body of the car is one piece. So the answer is no they don't, the interior has some details cast into the plastic. The body paint work in Nitrous Blue looks to me to be the real Ford colour, it has the silver in it which is pickup in sunlight.

Nice! When possible I usually like to get two, one to keep in the box/plastic and the other out of the box/plastic, there's just something special about being able to hold it and have that sort of interaction VS looking through plastic.
