I have, it's the F40 in 1/8. I think that's the only Ferrari big model that they made. It was very expensive then. I bought that about 10 years ago and still have not assembled it.

You should, I've never seen a more realistic model like this one.
They also made a TestaRossa, a normal one and a spider version.

got the F40 and assembled it in about 3 days (that was eh...some 8 years ago). There are some pics of it at my site:

Marcos, is that in 1/8 too. I think I've seen it before but wasn't sure if it was Pocher. There was never a Testarossa Spyder model from the factory so that model is not something that I want to have.

Forza, I like your work-room, it's so organised!

it is 1:8, but I personally didn't like these cars. They were a bit to plastic. Haven't seen them in store over 10 years I think...

Yes now that you mention the "plasticky" look, I remember I saw it in the shop window where I bought the F40. It wasn't nice.

True, Pochers are in the large 1:8 scale. Most of the body is made from metal, mirrors and smaller parts from plastic. Ten years ago these sold new for about 350 euros. Personally I donīt like them because they are a bit crude in details and just a little too large and heavy. Also, because of the huge weight of these models, the suspensioncomponents tend to break easily.

Getting the Kyosho 1/12 F40 instead is a better option over a Pocher kit, and it does look much better too. I got one and would not trade/sell it for anything else! 8)

I got that recently and it's beautiful!! I also got the 1/12 F50 by Tamiya, the first issue that was out some 8 yeras ago. I'm waiting for the 1/12 Enzo by Tamiya. Have booked one and it's supposed to be out around this time. Tell me if you see them in the store already.

The Kyosho F40 is simply awesome! I have not yet ordered the Enzo from Tamiya, I always want to see it first before ordering. They should be available from september onwards. I will keep my eyes open for it!

I'm for the big models. I have the Amalgam 1/8 scale Ferrari F2000, F2001, F2002 and F2003-GA.

I used to collect the 1/18 and the 1/42 scale but the small ones are expensive. I still collect the 1/18 though. But now I concentrate on the 1/12s and the 1/8s but these rarely come into the market.
