Re: BA XR8 Model Cars

They look awesome. I noticed that Sparkly paint...should make Sparkles happy (hehe pun intended). I might have to go on out and rustle me up one of them.

Re: BA XR8 Model Cars

I've got roughly 40 model cars at 1:18 scale (numerous brands) but none with that much detail! Also of note i purchased a racing viper for $170 which is awesome, but this xr8 looks better. so i wouldnt be suprised if these topped $200

why dont they cut that glitter stuff and just use the same paint ford does on the real cars...?

Re: BA XR8 Model Cars

have heard it suggested that the "glitter stuff" is due to the fact that they are using the same paint ford does, they are metallic flecks that look more obvious on a small scale model than it does on a full sized car
