I don't think there's a shortage of Ferrari worshipers here.

Yes I do!

I know the 250's, probably the most recognized classic Ferrari.

$552 seems like a bargain for a Tamiya 1/12 model. I clicked quickly and saw the price and didn't think much of the conversion, I assumed it would be in the 1000's.

I would buy that model for that price..

What is unfortunate is awhile back, they were selling for something like half price. So, even less.

Both Anil and I scored the 1/12 Enzos (posted in the diecast cars thread). He bought two though...lucky bastard.

Of course, for me, the pinacle are the Ferraro models by BBR: http://www.bbrmodels.com/new_2010/pagine/index.php


Click...but, just be warned that you just may cry a bit.
