Yes in my experience all Burago models have more attention paid to them. Unfortunately they can't make any new Ferraris because Hotwheels now have the licence!

I like the F40 of Bburago, but do not like the 288 GTO and 250 GTO that much. 1/18 is not my thing, so I did not have a close look at them, but the 1/43 scale Hotwheels were/are very disappointing to me.

thanks for the reply's

I'm very happy now, becasue I've got quite alot new stallions :D

It happens to me alot that when I want to buy a certain modelcar and go online to search and buy the car, I see all those other beautifull cars. And at the end of the day I've bought not the car I was searching for, but other cars. And spending more money then I had planned to. :green:

That's what happened this time again.

So... no pictures of the F40, but a few pictures of my new Ferrari's:




I've got the 360 complete now 8) (modena,spider,challenge,challenge stradale)


-612 Scaglietti - Grigio Ingrid - 1:18 - Hotwheels



-360 Challenge Hotwheels - Blue - 1:18 - Hotwheels



-360 Spider - Red - 1:18 - Hotwheels



-348 Tb - Red - 1:18 - Bburago




Still on their way to my home:
-355 Challenge - Yellow - 1:18 - Hotwheels
-550 Barchetta - Red (dark) - 1:18 - Hotwheels (I'm going to trade this one for the 550 Maranello on top of my case)


:green: :green: :green: :green:

I have both the Hot Wheels and the Burago F40's. The Burago has better detail than the Hot Wheels (the clips holding down the engine cover for example are including on the Burago and not the Hot Wheels). If you can buy either, I would go with the Burago, but if you can't, the Hot Wheels is still nice....

I got the Burago F40, but I had to do a lot of modification (painting) to have the looks of a real F40...

Currently working on another Burago F40, but I want to make it a racing one (LM)

I've now got a F40, but I don't really like the color.
It's very light and almost a bit pale.
Do you've got that too? Or have I bought the wrong car?
Is it easy to change the color of a car? And stickers (logos)?
Is it expensive?



@zwoemba
I like the CS.

It's not a top of the line model, but for the range that it;s in I think it is a very cool car.

Of the 4 360's that I have I think this is #2 (next to the grigio Modena-> that;s a killer colour)

I want to post some pics of the 360 online, but all the places I used to post pics are shut down. So maybe this site can help you, they've got some good photo's of their models:

I didn't decide yet. I realy like the green/red one and the yellow/blue one. I'll look for a pic to show, maybe you guys can help me make up my mind.
I'll need a lot of pics from these cars...

At this point I'm still at the proces of stripping paint, but I'll make some pics (after I'm back from Rome). Hard thing about this project is the steel Burago uses. That's very hard to change... ...I'll also make some pics of the other F40.

I don't know...
Personally I really like the #27
But, the green/red one is also cool

I've seen the green/red one before (as a model) on the site of http://www.rossorapido.com/

I recently bought a Pagini Zonda model. Since i was considering building it in 3d. It was solido brand, and i'm not to impressed with the quality, maybe because i'm used to detailing virtual cars alot more than they can detail these things :D

I couldn't find any other brands that do the Pagini Zonda. I'm looking for some blueprints for that aswell. Since I rarely use blueprints these days but wanted to do a 100% perfect 3d car before I start workin.

djee, Simon, if you are buying a Solido then you can't expect a lot of detail on them, it's a cheap brand.
the only other company that's making a Pagani's at the moment is Spark Model, but they are in 1/43

This one looks stunning :eek: I suppose it is 1/12 scaled? Do they have 1/18?
Yes, Rossorapido has got 1:18 models.
333 sp pilot, f40 race editions (I thought 3 different types), F50 GT and some others I don;t remember anymore.
They've got pics on the site, but their site is down alot
http://www.rossorapido.com/

I really really like those cars they've got, but they're very expensive. The F40's and 333 SP are about 175 euro's and the F50 Gt is even more expensive
