Once again, thanks for all the info.
I do have the Esci-Ertl SWB but that one is all wrong on so many levels, and an Italeri re-pop sure would have been nice
Anyhow, let's hope we do see some of these older Ferrari cars on the market again... Reissues or new tools, doesn't matter to me, as long as they're available.
You're very welcome. As is very well known about me, I do indeed love "kitology."
The ESCI-Ertl SWB was so bad when first released that Ertl took the kit off the market and retooled the body. It was better, but still bad. The shape was actually closer to the rare Scaglietti-bodied Corvette than to a Ferrari 250GT SWB.
Little known fact: the machinations and flawed processes that produced this kit was a key factor in Ertl's decision to liquidate ESCI as an entity, transfer the molds to Dyersville, and reduce ESCI to nothing more than a brand used on kits molded in the USA (later Mexico.)
And I am with you on any Ferrari kit on the market. Hopefully the rest of the Italeri Ferraris will reappear, either in Italeri box or as Revell of Germany.
I know I waxed poetic before on the Lusso...now, wouldn't it be nice to have an injection molded 166 or 212 Barchetta too? A 250 TdF? a tunnelback 1964 250GTO? A 330LMB as Bill G. suggested? Oh yeah!
