    does anyone have detailed pix of a 1/12 F50 and 1/12 F40 next to each other? i want them both :( i saw the f50 at the weeked at exoticar and still was "pturbed" by the black outlines around the headlights. I still think they are more prominant than on the real car. I have been wanting the F40 for ages, i just need soemthing to confirm my thoughts.

    Other thing, does anyone have the same for the 1/18 308gtb qv and 328? I just need to decide which one to get first :D

    Thanks a lot

    Chris,
    As far as the 308 and 328, they are nearly identical in quality. I would get the one you can find cheaper first, probably the 308. The 328 still seems to be expensive on Ebay and pre-order at other places.

    thanks a lot guys. i'm def. now going with the f40 when the "financial status" allows. For now, i think i'm going to go with the 308. i saw the black 328 at exoticar and wasn't as impressed as i was with the 308.

    cheers

    I think they should have used a US version of the F40 instead of the Euro version... I like the black lip on the US cars, and the fact that there are no tail lights in the rear bumper.

    Yeah that annoys me as well. I would definately like to add the 1/12 F40 and F50 to my collection. An Enzo as well when they make a 1/12 scale( the1/5 scale is a little pricey and a little big.

    The model has a lip, but it looks more like a "splitter" instead of the larger U.S. lip.
