Australia misses out on so many New release models.
But not all the time.
Sometimes models are released in different geographical locations. Once a manufacture chose Australia before the USA or Europe for release of a certain range, 6 months before the USA and Europe. Yet this model was based on a model vhehcle built in the UK.
Most models that are in current catalogues do not come into Australia, this makes it hard, when a person see a model in worldwide brochures. You can buy direct of eBay and pay the high postage. Or approach a seller like modelsofmeaning to source the model from other eBay sellers worldwide. I can sometimes offer a much reduced postage as I order quantities that attract combined postage. So the listing price on eBay is more realistic.
