    Gorgeous. I am getting every variation that comes out. I don't care.
    By the way if you paid attention, the mystery about the TRs is unraveled. In the back ground is clearly visible a 512TR, which would make me think that this is the "late version","second generation" or whatever they announced it as. Which is great news as this model was made only by Mira before and was a disaster. lets hope that the other one then would be the '84 Testarossa. If that is the case and they release them, since they were already announced when the license story came out, then this great news. I'll be getting them too.
    Can't wait. And I still have not caught up with the Daytonas......

    Wow, that looks nice!

    I can see in the background a 512TR and an F40 "Light Weight" too!

    Now that I looked more carefully to the pictures, I can say for sure that one is the 1984 Testarossa and the other is the next generation 512TR from 1991. I'm in heaven.
    Lets see... 250 GTO in 3 versions, two F40 lightweights and two TRs from Kyosho, 156 Sharknose and 250TR from CMC, and 512LM F430 and F430 GT2 from BBR, plus whatever HW comes out with this year.....wow.......my wife will kill me..:)

    Actually it's darkblue. There never was a black 250 GTO. I hope Kyosho didn't make that mistake.

    This is getting to be an expensive year -- two CMC Ferraris and now the Kyosho!!

    But wow, a watershed year for quality Ferrari models: CMC Testarossa, Dino 156 and now the Kyosho 250 GTO.

    If only Exoto would take the 500F2 drivetrain and make a Mondial or Monza!
