Every serious collector I know have at least one Ferrari die-cast. Ferrari die-casts are always in demand all over the world from little kids to adult collectors like us. Some have hundreds of tiny Hotwheels and some have dozens of Kyoshos and BBRs. I've got a few Ferrari BBRs in 43 scale and a few Kyoshos in 18 scale, a few other eclectic mix of 43 scale Ferraris. If I have to let go all my Ferraris and only choose one, I'll be keeping this baby.
My 25th Anniversary Diapet Yonezawa Ferrari Mythos. This model does not come in a fancy box, just a carton and two pieces of hand cut styro to keep it from moving in the box. The model itself has no opening part, no suspension, no fancy paint and the craftsmanship is akin to a diecast made from the 1950s.
Why do I like it so much? I really can't explain it but maybe because I know that a real person has painstakingly detailed this die-cast by hand. Maybe because I like the way it feels when I hold it, knowing it is made from a solid block of white metal. The Ferrari Pininfarina Mythos ain't even popular and maybe even unknown to some. I like it maybe because I know that very few people would appreciate it and I am the only one crazy enough to buy it.
Well, enough of my story and here is my low tech Ferrari.
Hope you guys like it. Feedback is always appreciated.
