Slightly better than my old Burago... :lol:
Superb colour, either white or black is the hue for this '80s monster.

Very nice mate. Expressed the same when it was in my hands.

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Very cool model and perfect colour for that Lambo :)
Had a poster in my room back in the 80's which had white Lambo with black background. Used to admire that often. Too bad it got lost during the years.

Thanks Tom......it is indeed a step up from the Bburago and the Polistil. Though those did have opening bits.

Love the triple white......a reflection of THAT poster we all seem to remember. I quite like the Countach in red too.

Thanks Andy..... a positive nod from "the Curator" is always high praise indeed.

Thanks. I had the poster that was lengthways of the car, and the poster that had three pictures of it. And most ironically, whilst starting to clear my dad's house recently, I found the very same two posters.

Did anyone have the same style posters of the Ferrari 308 GTS as well?

Not a fan of the Xes (give me a Z any day!) but the model is a quality piece.

First of a few Otto's to show.......the Ford RS Focus. My pictures make this look a darker grey than it actually is in the hand.

Whilst the Focus is pretty cool the Alfa is wonderful

Was eyeing one of these (in blue) up at Thames Alfa earlier when I took mine down for a cambelt replacement quote (how effing much!)
Anyway the Alfa was £53k OTR. Must work harder

Brilliant model and car, and in the right colour.

Unlike Andy I'm going to bypass the "work harder" bit and look to sell some organs to be able to afford a 1:1 :lol:

Absolutely the right colour for this car/model.
