    Saw the other thread where the 365BB came up. I have one. Searched a long time for this one and finally found it on ebay. I think I paid about $40 for it (what a bargain!). It is different from the 512 and has the same quality as all Kyosho models. Here are some pics...

    Very cool!

    Here's another one for you Andreas. I picked it up at the LA auto show a few weeks ago - I got it for $14.99!!! I think the box was marked wrong as the other ones were marked $50. I thought it was a 512 when I was buying it, lol. :)

    Jerry I am jealous! That is one kickass model! My 512 model is made by Chrono and its pretty cheap...14.99 for a Kyosho is a STEAL!

    I agree. I have the Chrono model as well and the quality and detail don't come close to the Kyosho. Nice job! :)

    Too much peer pressure: I caved in, picked up the telephone and called Exoticar. Yeah, yeah, I know...the dark side etc. Well, hopefully my 512BB will soon have some good company.

    Damn, the same thing just happened to me reading this thread. I am at the office processing loans as well as calling ExotiCar to get another 512, because the one I have is by Chrono(Which looks like a toy), not a true collectors item like the Kyosho 512 BBI. I already picked up the white 360 spider Whips edition by mattel this morning at the Super Target in Spring Texas for $17.99. Not to mention that my work car stalled out on me, and is sitting on 1-45 just before the Cypresswood Exit. After buying my model, calling my girlfriend to take me to the office, I forgot all about calling the wrecker. Guess I'll call sometime this evening.

    Since this keeps coming up, I know of 3 Kyosho 512 Boxers for sale at a local Dallas hobby shop. The red and yellow are $60, the silver is $70. If anyone is intersted, I'll make the trip to pick them up.

    Jim the problem is that we all have 512BB's and 365BB's, only Andreas is still looking for the 365BB....sucker! (Just kidding) :) LOL Frank has been looking for a 512BBi but I don't think they make such an animal.

    That's the nice part about FerrariChat: When you're down and out they'll kick you in the mud...
    :)

    Actually I should be getting the 365BB anytime now (yeah right, that's what Exoticar wants me to believe...) and since I scored some other real rarities in the process, I'll have the last laugh. Harhar!

    Seriously, what would it take to make Frank happy (aside from calling all 3x8 Ferraris Dinos)? I mean what are the differences between the 512BB and 512BBi? Just the plenum, isn't it? Shouldn't be that hard to kitbash I would think. Yes, no, maybe so?

    Jelmer, looks good! Welcome to the forum.

    Andreas, you can laugh, I'm still trying to find a 275!

    I got a 275 but wouldn't dare to laugh. That thing is the poorest quality model of them all. Looks more like a toy than a model. But it's the only one I got, so there it stays.

    We can close the lid on this one:

    She just arrived from Exoticar, yellow 365BB. Definitely not a 512BB. Kyosho 1/18. Lovely.

    I just picked up the 365 GT4/BB yesterday. Mine's Red/Tan with Black inserts and it's beautiful! I hope Kyosho makes a 1:18 model of all of the Ferraris. They do a great job. :)
