    Hi Group,

    Looking for a F40 1:18 model. A nicer one like BBR, Amalgam or Kyosho.

    I am tempted by the GT Spirit one. Any thoughts? It appears to be a sealed model (hood and trunk do not open)?

    Look forward to hearing from some of you. Interested if any pf you are selling.

    I think the GT Spirit is indeed a curbside model.

    Kyosho and BBR do make very nice 1:18 F40s. You're specifically looking for a used model?

    Top Marques also makes a 1:18 F40 and I think it is generally considered better than the GT Sprit version...

    I think the only non-sealed F40s made were the Kyosho and the HotwheelsElite

    The Kyosho is def superior to the HW...If you try to find one of the Kyoshos, note their are two versions - the original release from ~2007 and the uprated, 'High-End 2010 release (same mold but better details.) To add to the confusion, there's also a more recent Kyosho sealed resin version. :cool:

    Thanks! I don’t like the fact that the GT Spirit is sealed
