Saw them at Sapphire and Total. Priced at 599 or 499 I think.

You welcome

I thought of picking up a couple for myself but right now I am on strict no-buy from my wife until I get a good lockable display area for the scale models I already have. Going the DIY route for it.

And yes I did see your earlier note on the Sapphire store in Koramangala. I think it opened yesterday. Quite a convienient location for us, hope they have good parking space.

yes- parking is a pain and a bane on that road.

and tell me, are there any of those 1:43's in the classic ferrari's like the 308 GTB, the Lusso, the 250 GT, the old classic Dino etc? any idea?

Wish there were some more of the Ferrari's easily available in 1:43 Scale.
Would love to have a few.
cheers
Thanks to everyone who liked the 612. As am not good with the camera am happy that the last pic was appreciated.
And thanks to cyrus for paint-job idea.


@shankar.balan
Actaully there are quite a few ferrari models available in 1:43. Hotwheels sells them in packs of 3,5 and 10 though. The attention to detail is not great (even for a 1:43) but for an average price of 90 bucks its quite good value.


Regards.

Judging by the price and the fact that they are available in multiple packs, I think you are talking about the annual hotwheels standard lineup... they are approximately 1:64 scale not 1:43.

Hi Shankar and others. I got some pics off the net. I remember Cyrus uploading some pictures of those somewhere on here. Did a quick search but could not find his post.

They are available in single units as in pics 2 and 3.
