I told my youngest daughter I'd buy her a BMW... [PIC]
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.
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.
@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.
