Which is exactly why I don't need a Mercedes Benz :-)

To be fair, and bearing in mind my lack of RP knowledge, the two quotes I had at under $300 were for polystyrene rather than resin or plastic models.

However on the resin/plastic front, the price did range from $600 to $6000. I did make it clear that I only wanted a ball park figure for something representitive to pass around... just to see if there was space for the wife, kids and dog!

I'm sorry that I stirred up a hornets nest....

Once again though, thanks very much to all who have given advice.

I guess the moral of the story is.. to shop around before deciding.. and don't let the camel-hair-coat-man see how fat your wallet is! ;-)
