Only 289 in 1:12, Exoto does 1:18, but also 289 only.

i Assume you'r referring to 1:18. If you're looking for a 427 i would suggest Kyosho (i'm not just saying that because i have 7 of those, really  :rolleyes:)
or Ertl or Shelby Collectibles.
I'm not mentioning Yatming, Road Though & C°.

When I bought a 1/12 GMP GT40, the guy said he also had the Cobra. I wanted it so bad, but he was not willing to let it go. They are very hard to find. One day maybe.

They're going for around $400 on eBay right now....that said, I think it's better than the 1:12 Kyosho 427, which is around the same price.  I have both (two of the GMP 289s actually) and it's incredible.  Definitely worth it if you can afford the price.

To the OP, as the other poster mentioned, Kyosho is probably the best for a 427 in either 1:18 or 1:12.  Unfortunately there's no 'great' 1:18 427 out there.  I really wish Exoto would do one, since their 289 is super nice.
