Hello Gentlemen,
I know some of you may like the Ferrari FF, some others may not, still I would be happy to see it in my stash. Probably manufacturers will take care of the new F70 (or whatever it will be called), but do any of you guys know anything about any manufacturer to produce a plastic FF also? If you have any info, don't hesitate to share with us, good or bad news anyway! Thank you Guys!

Misleading post...I thought you were letting us know Revell announced a FF kit, as the german toy show is coming up in January and I am expecting an announcement soon enough. I wouldn't mind seeing one myself, and I'm sure any Ferrari kit, if not particularly mainstream, sells well, but who knows about the FF.

FF is my favorite modern Ferrari, and this is saying a lot. I'd definitely build one - maybe this is the kit I'm waiting for to get me back to building again! Come one Revell!

I check Revell's site almost EVERYDAY for this... I'm quite tired now...

As cool as the FF is, I think it's a long shot for a plastic model. If Revell AG doesn't do it, I doubt anyone else will.

I would think Revell AG would make more $$ with a 458 Spider, and perhaps an F12 (though Fujimi really stole their thunder this time around). And as for the F70 or whatever they call it, I'd think Revell AG would be on that more than the FF.

At the moment, only 1/18 or 1/43 diecasts are available:

The only 1/24 plastic is the Maisto R/C one:

May I ask you why did you stop building kits? Your website is not updated by years... Too busy with your job or it is a matter of fading passion?

I love this Ferrari too.

Also Rastar has made the same:

Well, between Maisto and Rastar models, I choose the Rastar one: it seems better proportioned, better molded, the stance is really good, the windshield wipers are better, the alloy wheels are almost the right size and the headlights are way better, reproducing correctly the LED day running lights.

hmm, I think I recall you also being one of the rare few that also liked the old M Coupe, right?

Good points, but to be honest, I'd be surprised if a modern Ferrari didn't get released by at least one maker as a 1/24 scale plastic kit. Its like leaving money on the table!

I work 70+ hours a week. Simply no time.

Correct - I drive one almost daily! Love that car.

I think it will be released, although it isn't the best looking, it definitely is still beautiful machine. If they can make the 612, they should be able to make the FF. I would love a 456 though :drool:

I would love to see a FF. I keep wishing that someone will kit this car. just as long it's not some super expensive resin door stop.

Check the correct stance and the correct wheel size of the Ferrari FF in this video:

The Rastar Ferrari FF is definitely the best!

Not bad looking but to large for a Ferrari. You can get a real one new from the US Ferrari dealers without a problem as they are not selling that well.

Did you know that the Ferrari FF is the first car ever to feature the innovative AWD system shown in this video?

I'd certainly get one, whoever does it!

The FF is a very good example of how the proportions in a model are really difficult to get "looking right", even if they are exactly 1/24th the size of the real thing in every direction. I saw one in London just before Christmas, and in the flesh it looks really low and wide, and that bonnet is REALLLLY long...

Really nice colour scheme as well, with black roof over pearl "whiter than white" body, which reduces the apparent "weight" of the glasshouse, and black wheels. The rear door also seems to "wrap over" onto the roof.

bestest,
M.

No FF in the near future, at least from Revell. Just another presumably reissue of the 250GTO.

excluding the DTM bmw Revell items are quite disappointing this time.
Seems I will be so lucky to have all the M3 e92s done, GTR, GT2 and DTM .. :naughty::iceslolan

....and i wonder why they go on making stuff for star wars when last movie is from 2005.LOL :crying:
