Revell : 1/12 Ferrari 250 GTO

Post by VermillionRed » Thu Dec 31, 2020 12:14 pm

Hello fellow diecast enthusiasts. I recently came across a car that I wanted to buy a long time ago but never did. I am referring to the 1/12 scale Ferrari 250 GTO by Revell. These were released I believe 20 years ago. Now they appear on that popular auction site at outrageous prices. These Ferraris came in several variations . The road version in red and yellow . Also competition versions like the Mecom team and David Piper. I always thought the exterior and finish of this particular model looked really good. The engine bay and interior of the car are very spartan and these are the reasons i stayed away. Anybody here own these and would like to share their point of view? Lastly , I think the Kyosho version of the Ferrari 250 GTO in 1/18 is likely the best representation in terms of quality and money.

I didn't even know these existed until your post. Based on what I seen in the photos the exterior side is well done. When I display all else is usually closed. Pricing is reflective of the age and the fact Revell is out the scale model business, well from diecast scale perspective.
