Because slammed. Lower profile = smaller target. You thought it started in Japan?

Was supposed to be obviously not serious ...

but the thought of a Tiger rolling into combat slammed with spinners for the road wheels is kind of hilarious

Because insanely small. Very easy to bend something out of alignment. Those little tabs you see on the drive wheels? they're about 1mm wide by about 2.5mm long. That should give you an idea of the scale. It's teeny tiny. If you have big, clumsy hands, it will be a challenge. I ended up using tweezers to build mine.

BTW, the Darth Vader Tie fighter is very difficult to get together.

For anyone contemplating buying a house, shop what you can afford in a 15 year note. You will pay tens of thousands of dollars less to the bankers and be able to save more for retirement (or hookers and blow).
I did a quick search for detached single family houses in my city (county actually) under 300k. There were zero.

My 900 square foot house fails your above test.

900 Sq.Ft. for over $300k? That's insane.

My house is about 1200 Sq.Ft., and cost me $73k back in 1986. I paid it off in 20 years, and interest rates were 11% back then.

In many high cost of living areas it is actually a better investment to rent than to own. There are calculators online that will tell you when buying a house is actually a worse investmemt than renting.

I have that same problem. Anything out here that one might consider a "starter home" that lists @ $300k (20k) is purchased instantly, with cash. Everyone wants to own rentals as a tax shelter and this county still has too many rich bastards buying things sight unseen. The only things left on the market in that price range have serious issues, like new roof/new plumbing/new interior surfaces/new yard type remodels. We still have flippers out here paying cash too. Its insane.

Of course there is also still NEW construction going on out here because the market is still selling postage stamp lots with 900-1,200 sq/ft McMansions on them, no garage, no yard, for the mid 300s. Anything with any land attached to it instantly becomes insanely overpriced.

I really like it out here, but I need someone in the family to die if I expect to own a place any time soon.

I would never buy a condo or multifamily home unless I was buying it to rent out. Why pay taxes and assessment fees on a place when you can just pay rent on an apartment.
