Default die-cast testarossa question

is the 1:18th hotwheels testarossa the best that can be had in 1:18th scale?

did kyosho ever make one?

edit: sorry, kyosho probably made this for HW? since i know that is was made by someone else.

edit again: talking about the 1984 testarossa.

Mattel owns the Ferrari license to make models...so that'll be your only choice, unless they let someone else make some like they did with 1/43 scale replicas and model kits.

Minichamps makes a REAL nice 1:12 F40

Same ppl that make the 1:12 MclarenF1 that goes for $$$

Mattel only recently had the ferrari deal.

yeah, the hotwheels looks like the least inaccurate. i think HW recently got the ferrari license didn't they? i've found a few kyosho branded 308's and they are flat out incredible. those 1:12 scale F40's scream... i don't think i could spend that much though! the new enzo's by HW look decent though. same old story i suppose, get what you can.

I know it's only recently, but it's hard to find the older ones though. If you want the best get the 1:8 scale Pocher kit (it's amazing)

Yeah the Mattel F40 looks exactly like the early 90's bburago F40 I had that was a piece of junk.

Hmm, I'll have to look for the minichamps.

edit: oh and there's a paint chip on the side near the back hatch. the inside of the box was suspiciously taped around the ends.
