Kyosho 1995 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta

Sep 14, 2012 2 Comments by

Thanks to Kyosho, our holiday wishes for 2012/2013 will be a bit sweeter.  Coming this December is a 1:18 scale 1995 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta, to be released in both black and red.  With opening doors, trunk, and bonnet,  photo-etched wipers, 3D logos and tight shut lines, this is the kind of high-end luster Ferrari enthusiasts appreciate, from a company long known for bringing high quality to the shelves.

About the author

I have been a car guy since my early teens. From managing a performance center on Long Island NY to being a partner of the world’s largest traveling global car show series; my career path has taken me on an exciting journey. I have consulted for MTV, McDonalds, Turtle Wax, Dodge and other high profile companies and have been published in multiple automotive journals. Alpha Penguin Publishing recruited me to co-author “The Complete Idiots Guide to Customizing Your Ride” for which one of my cars graces the cover. My diecast addiction began about 12 years back. My girlfriend at the time knew I was saving for a Mustang Cobra. She thought it would be humorous and purchased a diecast version to hold me over for a while. What was an initial joke struck a chord because I was fascinated with how Hot Wheels could make such a cool replica for a buck. The next time we went shopping I stopped in the toy aisle and ended up purchasing additional Hot Wheels and a few Jada vehicles. Well you all know the story from here; one shelf led to a book case. The book case quickly became an apartment filled with hundreds of HotWheels, Jada and other 1:64th scale replicas. Next came my introduction to 1:24th and 1:18th scale die cast and twelve years later I am the proud owner of a collection that is displayed in a 2000sq foot facility with a current count of over 12 thousand unique pieces. My then girlfriend, now wife, has a lot of patience for my hobby and my two little girls enjoy it with us too. Today I find myself fascinated with all scales and all models of customized vehicles. From tuners to rat rods, lead sleds to pro street drag. I do have an appreciation for the well delivered OEM vehicles as well. Most of all I enjoy the hunt to complete a set or series of vehicles. I look forward to being a part of DieCast X Magazine and helping to strengthen, grow and deliver our hobby to people who do not know how rewarding it is to an individual and a family.

    Here are two models that I dearly love and wish some on like
    CMC, Kyosho would manufacturer.
    1) my dad’s Mercedes-Benz 280SL Pagoda W113 1968
    this car seems to always be skipped and the manufactured ones I have seen are lost in detail and like disposable toys. Let make a real collectors model out of this car. I do not mine paying $300.00 and up for good quality models .
    2} The last of the Mercedes-Benz 300SLR with funical Air Brake. thee only decent one I have in my collection is a classic made by Paul’s Model Art. I like a 1/18Th scale model with more detail I do not know why CMC has not made this car since they have all the tooling and parts . With slight modification and a new body the car could be produced very
    inexpensively by them . I be willing to buy three.

    Thanks for going live again what address will take me to the live broadcast and if I miss an episode will their be a place I can go to review the program again?
