PHOTO GALLERY: GT Spirit Ferrari F355 Berlinetta (1:12)

Bigger is always better!  This example from GT Spirit is rock solid!  And it weighs like one too! This resin and sealed replica is one of the latest 1:12 scale examples from the team to include the Ferrari badge, and the car unmistakably is the Ferrari F355 Berlinetta in Ferrari Red!  The F355 was the successor to the dated Ferrari 348.  The 8-cylinder motor was capable of pushing 380 horsepower, nicely done by mid 90’s sportscar.

As for the model good marks for the overall shape and fit and finish.  The front grille is solid, however, in this case, the original follows suit.  Exterior paint is a typical GT Spirit, ambitious effort.  Sticking with the exterior, one oversight might be the wheels.  The scale is slightly off, slightly too much rim and too little rubber.  Does it look bad, absolutely not.  But if you’re looking from historical accuracy, it falls someone short.  The interior is sharp with a tan colour.  Flocking is present with fabric seat-belts.  Nice attention to detail in the various interior components too.  Overall GT Spirit presents a solid effort, and rare 1:12 scale specimen.  Enjoy the pics!

    Finally a decent Ferrari model from GT Spirit. All previous more vintage Ferrari’s from them were terrible, but I have to say, that overall this F355 looks extremely good. Guess they should stick to making modern cars.

    I have pre-ordered the white Countach in 1/8 for obvious reasons. What I do not understand, though, is why they’re doing some of there big scalers in 1/8 and some in 1/12. That’s quite a bit of a wild mixture.

      Our take I think they are dipping their toes into the larger scale with some icon cars and gauge the interest. We’re sure there are larger margins here, but a way small pool of buyers, especially in 1:18 scale.

      • Karsten says:

        You can say that again. Profit margins seem to be enomous: the red 1/8 Countach is now for sale for 900 Euros, while I pre-ordered my white one for 750 and someone is still making a profit.
