    Dogue, what scale are those...? In all honesty, they look pretty disappointing...

    They are 1/64 regular Hot Wheels size. The F1 car is pretty pathetic for as far as accuracy but compared to the regular hotwheels the other two look pretty good to me.

    Well, the wheels on the 360C look pretty generic... i have a few Hot Wheels Milestone Moments and the other similar series at home... The cars look great... i hope Hot Wheels hasn't decreased the quality of the models EVEN FURTHER now...

    I agree about the wheels on the 360C, these are the same wheels they have used on special edition Ferrari since the early 90s. They are in desperate need of updating. I think they are also the same as the wheels used on last years 330P4. The wheels on all three are pretty bad, but when you look at the regular 333sp with the rediculous flame job, this edition is a HUGE improvement. The Tampo on all three is pretty nice also (again in comparison).

    What's the fun of collecting models like these? Just badly reproduced toys in my opinion...

    I do see your point, and the same could be said about Bburagos in my opinion.

    The reason I buy the 1/64 toys is that they are cheap and Ferrari related. I don't think these are represented as scale models, but just as you noted Toys.

    I thought there might be some in the community that is as insane as myself.


    I also like to collect highly detailed 1/43 models.

    Not all of them, htere larger scale models are pretty good, but these are pretty crappy. I mean the F1 looks like a hotwheels car they would produce for a Happy Meal toy.

    Me, too. I collect almost anything. I have all the Hall of Fame cars, just because I think they are cool. And the quality is good enough to run down 10 feet of track from the second floor!

    I will take some pictures tonight, and post them in a seperate thread.

    Ohh and I only have one BBR the rest are lesser quality, but still very nice. My favorite is bang, best and Art Model for the money. I cannot afford BBRs, unfortunately.
