Hello from Germany,

from what I read in that letter from Kyosho, this decision is based on sales numbers.
I think this whole die-cast thing has been getting nuts during the last two decades. Remember; Burago started with the 1:18 scale around 1984 with the 250 GTO and 250 Testarossa. You could get these models for around EUR 10,-- ( $ 15,--). Back then the models were produced in masses, bought occasionally as a toy for children with the purpose of play and scrap. And sales numbers were fairly healthy.
In my opinion, modelcars are way too expensive nowadays for reaching profitable sales.
Especially because earnings in China, where most companies produce, are rising.

Just my opinion. We will see.

Best Regards

Martin

He's very credible, nothing to worry about.

See if this link works:

http://www.scale18.com/cgi-bin/page/...=0&txt=ferrari

Might as well sign up for the special ones, e.g. black lightweight F40.

Interesting price difference between the F40s and the Testarossas.

I didn't know the 575 GTCs were coming out in a couple of race liveries. Feraud 365 looks nice too.

Lots of good stuff coming.

If Hot Wheels follows through (properly) on their F40 LM, will be a good year for collectors.

Wow, his prices on the F40's are great!

It is odd considering they have the same MSRP as the Testarossa's.

I'm guessing the Testarossa's will have a smaller production run.

As for the Hot Wheels F40 LM, I'm not holding my breath for even decent quality....
