Diecast Models - CODE 3
See HOME for more
Code 3 effectively means the model has been altered from its original condition. This has usually been done at the discretion of the modeler and without any express permission from the model's manufacturer or any party mentioned on any decals or transfers applied. It can be merely repainting the model to using the model as a donor and completely modifying it by totally refiguring it. While many purist collectors shy away from Code 3 models they are also quite well sought after by collectors especially if the model maker builds a reputation for creating quality models. In many cases some of these models may be just as desirable as a factory built model because they are in themselves unique.
