Bang Ferrari 308 GTB





Ixo Ferrari 328 GTB





Herpa Ferrari 348 TB




The Herpa 348 is plastic - the opening features are very well done - no unsightly gaps.

Cheers,

Steve

Nice Ferrari's Steve. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I have a Ferrari 308 GTB laying around somewhere made by Solido from the early 80's (I believe). It's either red or yellow. Did you ever watch the TV series "Magnum PI"?

Thanks for sharing. I too have that Herpa and I'm amazed at how tight those opening parts fit when they're closed. You wouldn't even guess that they open. Gotta love those Ferrair's.

I've got to agree on the excellence of the fit & finish on the Herpa. For some reason the range didn't sell very - it may be, some people confuse quality with weight? - the Herpa is a very light.

Interestingly enough, even in 1:64 scale weight seems to be a factor in the 'quality component'. Maybe it has something to do with the "gold standard". Ya know, "the more it weighs, the more it's worth" train of misconception. I've seen plenty of plastic and plastic bottomed cars that were very well done and look far better than some of the sloppy 2 lb diecast that is available.
