    I've been thinking Carbominium, you've discussed the desire for new employment a few times, and I've solved your problem. Go to the local bakery and tell them you'd like to drive their delivery truck. You can then drive a Breadvan EVERY DAY!

    I have a 1/43 of this car by BBR. If I remember correctly, the suggested retail price was $225 but, of course, I didn't pay that much. BBR made several different versions (including one with the red/black paint scheme discussed in another thread) and I believe they can be found just about anywhere BBR models are offered n the Web. I'll see if I can find you some links.

    i'm not sure i wanna drop that kinda money on a 1:43 model at this point in my collection... With those numbers, it looks like i'd be better off going with the $240 1:18 Bread Van on ebay in France... Thanks for listing those, i'm astounded at the price for pretty much any available model of the Breadvan (except for the really crappy "versions" of it)...

    Eric, Dave, thanks... Jim, LMAO...!

    Prices are high because demand is small.

    MG models has three versions in 1:24 scale resin kits.

    MG2425A Ferrari 250 GT "Breadvan" # 16 24 heurs LeMans 1962
    MG2425B Ferrari 250 GT "Breadvan" # 15 1000 Km Montlehery 1962
    MG2426A Ferrari 250 GT "Breadvan" # 8 Brands Hatch 1962

    130 euro for a kit/ 380 euro for a factory built one.

    DES, Provence Moulage and BBR models are 1/43 Kits. The price of this is around 40 à 50 US$. The provence Moulage is very easy to made, the BBR is most difficult, but better .... The difference come from glasses, preformatted for PM, and not for BBR. But you can do it... I have made one (Posted in a other thread) !!! The only difficult for PM, is the covered headlights, if you use woodworking glue, you'll have no trace.
    The price you have, is for finish models, made by professionals.

    BBR offers most of their models as either kits or factory hand-built models. The examples I posted were factory-built models.

    I know they are a tad expensive, but here is a link to their site: http://www.bbrmodels.it/indexuk.htm

    Hi,

    Warm-up models are ugly. The take Bburago models as basis and keep the ugly wheels !!! The painting is very thick.

    There is another 250 GT Breadvan in 1/18 by SMS with lovely wheels. In 2 versions, Test car red+black with a T as race number and a LM? version with race number 16 Scuderia Serenissima. Here are pictures:
