Just one week ago, it was pending a spurious offer to an E-bay seller in a far off land....  :rolleyes:

But now this is the box emerging from the plain brown paper outer wrapping.....arrived at my door TODAY!!

If you fancy a game, you've got just 20 questions to outwit me and figure out what is indeed my 'grailiest of 'grails... :nice:

Those of you who know my collecting habits will probably fly this and make me look SOOOO predicatable, so it's strictly TWENTY closed questions, demanding a YES or NO answer....

I want MAKER, SCALE, MARQUE, COLOUR and of course MODEL .... and just for fun....the COUNTRY it came from!!!

So go on...what's in the box??  :dunno:

Judging by the box, I'd say it probably came from Italy?

Marque wise, I'm tempted to say Ferrari but Im going to go with Lamborghini .. ? :hope:
