1/24 Bburago Ferrari 308 GTB

This is an old casting that I bought from a friend at a cheap price. It's made in Italy. I wonder what year it was produced. I paint it in Sparkling Silver and added details to it. Plus I also painted the interior flat black. Ithink it looks way better than the original...

Awesome job!

Looks better than the original! I've always loved the Bburago 1:24 diecasts, especially their ferrari's.. they always made good ferarris.

I bought my kid a few 1/24 bburago's and I was a bit disappointed because they advertise them as made for kids 3+ years of age and they're totally not! They easily fall apart, the same as with Welly.

BUT! The Maisto 1:24 models are incredibly sturdy. Check out the photos of broken down bburago's and welly and a few unbroken Maistos at 1:24 diecast cars
