StratosWRC wrote:Nah are you kidding me, these two I'm keeping! The 288 is a loooong time grail of mine. There are several older autoarts, a Kyosho 512 BBi, a Kyosho F40 (LM I think), Hot Wheels Elite 166 MM, Lusso, Enzo Schumacher edition, FF, a bunch of older Exotos and UTs. Beats eBay, I'll tell you that. I love this store. I regret waiting until now to start visiting in person. It's a bit of a hike for me, but worth it every time.
Based on your photos they are a re-sell. The straps are not found on either. So your timing was great, price even better!

Yep, he sells people's collections frequently it seems. There were a LOT of models there similar to these two.

Edit: Just unpacked them and the Scuderia still has the straps on. The 288 had the wires in places, the ones that hold the hood and engine cover own. Doesn't look like it was ever displayed though. It's pristine.

Love that Audi R8 colour. It's the only R8 on my wish list.

Thanks! I supposedly won't get the R8 but then googling I saw the Dealer Edition and had to get it... had to order it all the way from HK.. no seller that I know of is selling the dealer edition here at US. had to wait for 2 weeks before it arrived.


haha not really I just thought looking over the images in autoarts website the red ones for me was the most fitting color for the 3. :)

I'm desperate to get one of those DE R8 GTs.....I have the V8 and both V10 dealer editions and this would complete the set for me! I should've snapped one up when they were readily available :doh:

I've got an AutoArt Veyron that arrived a few days ago I've got to photograph and share. It's the production version - black and blue and is Veyron number 15 for me

I need help. Big time. I can decide which route to go for next purchase(s).

1) 3 1/18's: AutoArt Huayra, AutoArt Aventador Roadster, and either Agera or One-77 (Assuming Venom GT will not be out in time for "next purchase(s)).

2) Pocher 1/8 Aventador in matte black

I would prefer the Autoarts too. I think Pocher isn't look that much nice.

Tough decision, the Pocher build was loads of fun, highly recommended! :D

Just about to buy this gorgeous satin red 60th anniversary Hot Wheels Elite Ferrari Mondial B. Got it for a decent £35 including postage posted off a guy who regularly sells on one of the diecast Facebook groups I'm part of. What dyu guys think?
