    Has anyone seen pictures or have info over a 1/43 scale F2002 made by BBR in yellow. Generally if a manufacturer like BBR does such a model, it is always based on an existing model. So I thought that maybe the real car was existing from a private collector or for a commercial purpose...
    I have to add that I'm not sure if it's a 2002 or 2001 version).
    Someone told me that pictures were seen in a japanese model car magazine...
    Thanks for helping to find out about it !

    yes, i do believe that BBR made a yellow f2002 for a modelling club in taiwan (correct me if i am wrong). someone on german ebay went one further and did a MATTEL HW 1/18 version of the same. does a real example exist? i certainly hope not as it is as much ugly as it is a total desecration of the car in question. why anyone would want a yellow f1 ferrari f2002 is beyond me and it just goes to show that fools and their money are easily parted.

    Maybe yellow has a certain meaning in Thailand or Asia? I think Jordan just signed a Chinese sponsor and siad that yellow represents something like worthiness or dignity?

    Indeed, why yellow... anyway I'm very pleased by all these answers and thanks for the great pics. I wanted to be sure that these yellow F1 were only scale cars and that none 1/1 was existing.
    Thanks again
