I purchased this set along with the yellow FD and they came all the way to NC United States in less than a week. They came with the boxes in almost perfect condition and all pieces were accounted for. As for the set itself, it’s fantastic of the 3 official initial D sets from cada the FC is my favorite, something about the shape of the car suits the cada bricks perfectly.
Overall this is a very good looking set which is fun to build. It‘s pretty accurate to the source material and the attention to detail is great.
The quality of the bricks is great too, but they do show some scratches out of the box and sometimes have some black marks. Luckily this wasn‘t the case for any of the pieces on the outside.
I was a bit disappointed that the set didn‘t include a functioning differential (unlike the AE86 model). But my biggest issue with the set (as with all CaDA sets I‘ve build so far) is the use of stickers. The stickers have a pretty bad quality and are often applied over multiple pieces. I would really have prefered the use of prints. It would give the set a much more premium feel, and I‘d be happy to pay a little extra. If prints aren‘t an option for some reason, I expect at the very least the use of much higher quality sticker and for them not to be applied over multiple pieces.
