    There is a place which I just left today, which is Toy's,Trains, Planes and More located on Westheimer and Fondren, which has only the 1/43 scale Ferraris, but they do have an assortment of F1 and others in the 1/18 scale.

    There is another Hobby shop Located on Chimney Rock, i can't remeber the name off the top of my head, they too have an assortment of 1/18 models as well as slot cars, model kits Etc. another large store.

    Then, there is always the online store Adkinsstore.com

    My best luck has been with the online stores. It is very rare for me to
    find ferraris that I am looking for in any of the hobby shops. More than 3/4ths' of my collection have been online buys including ebay, which I just scored a 1/18 ferrari 288 GTO Evolutione made by Jouef for $40.00 and $20.00 for shipping.

    Dear Paul: The best way to find Ferrari in any scale is the Internet. The Hobby shops doesn't inventory and they are very expensive.. Almost all my collection I bought in Ebay...

    Trains and Planes is about the best, World Toys in the Rice Village kick started my collection years ago, but sadly they are long gone.

    I like EWA for selection too (on the net now, they used to mail a HUGE catalog!) Do a Google on them.

    Rarely KayBee or Big Lots will have something, but not much lately!
