when she graduated from the US Merchant Marine Academy. So when the time came, I presented the newly minted Ensign with this BMW Z8. She was hoping for one in a larger scale, but she got a good laugh and proudly displays it on her dresser.

Love the Z8...yours is by Kyosho, right?  Mine is as well.

Is the white 507 a Revell? This is it in red. I've never seen a white one.

The 1/1 507 brings huge money today. Your daughter is lucky that her father can afford such a nice car for her. It's the least a father can do for a member of the military.

@rich-sufficool...I love your red 507.  The white 507 is by Revell.  If I remember right, Revell had different levels of cars...yours looks much more detailed than mine.  I've actually had 2 of them.  White with black interior, which I sold when I found white with red interior.  Norev just released a red one, which looks very good.  Thinking about trading up...it is sealed, though.

@gavin  I think the claim to fame of the "upper level" was leather seats.

Yeah...that, the knock-offs & some painted details might be the only differences.

Norev's recent release:

@gavin Norev, over the years, have really picked up their game. The exterior and cockpit are certainly superior to the now ancient Revell the fact that it's a curbside notwithstanding.

I agree..I'm been very happy with all my Norev purchases.  The 289 Cobra & Porsche 935s are great.  I'm very tempted by this the Norev.  Being sealed isn't a huge deal, especially on a Roadster.

@gavin   I have the white with red interior, that's the first I've seen on the black. Nice to see differently equipped versions.
