    As always, sealed resin first, opening models later.

    Did any brand confirm an opening version in 1/18 scale?

    • DS Team says:

      Possibly BBurago.

    • Karsten says:

      Even without an announcement, Autoart will surely make one. It’s the code of honour in the industry not to spill the beans prematurely and give resinmanufacturers the chance to have their business first, even though they know perfectly well that they are going to make it too. I’d say, it’s being developed already.

        Where are you getting this from? Some proof would be nice. No such thing as “code of honour in the industry”. It’s a business which would be a lot more in line with “cheat, steal and lie” to take the upper hand. Crazy allegations.

    I think Maisto is producing this car in 1:18. I hope it will have side windows (in the closed position).

    • MRM says:

      I don’t know if Maisto is making it, but on side note about the windows:
      I recently bought five Bugatti Divo models for $15 per model, with the clear intention to repaint at least two of them. Although they come labeled as Maisto and packaged in Maisto boxes, on their bottoms they say Bburago. I was really impressed by the engineering of the model, as simple as it is. When taking the doors apart I noticed that there are tabs inside, which are for holding a side window. This makes it rather simple to make a window and attach it without issues. The “window” of the box would provide plenty of material for quite few models.
      Maisto has been doing very well with their Lambo releases. I really enjoy my Sian and my V12 Vison GT in matching green, just like in certain youtube video. At least one of them was introduced before any resin and even at its normal retail price of $35-40, it is great. A true affordable model, which is not what I would call some $150-200 models.

    Bburago is now owned by Maisto. So they can release a model under any or both brands. And you’re right about some recent Maisto and Bburago releases like the Lambo Sian, Lambo V12 Vision GT, and the Bugatti Divo. They’re just fantastic models for their prices. I hope the company can sustain (and better yet if they can improve) the quality of their new releases. I hope this will include the soon-to-be released new Ferrari cars from Bburago.

      Could’t agree more. I ave taken apart two of my Divo models to repaint (one is almost finished) and I was really impressed by the engineering behind it. It’s pure genius how everything fits together and it is held by a total of 3 screws and absolutely no glue. And I can not get over how cool that insect looking Vision GT is. They even made some details absent on the real thing, like the seat, pedals, steering wheels and seatbelts. And the matching flat green paint with the Sian are a delight in the display cabinet.
      About the new Ferrari cars, it’s cool to see the SF90 from them. From the pictures I’ve seen, the Spider has the cover for the roof open too. I don’t know however if the roof would be functional or it will be like with their California, where you can see the folded roof in the trunk of the open model (a cool feature missing on the HW model).
      I don’t understand people dissing on Maisto/Bburago and their relationship with Ferrari and can only explain it by people still having hard time grasping the concept of the diecast business.
