Is there any model a particular favourite here ?
What I'm wondering is whether this model will be a 'success' (depending on how you define 'success', but let's say - to what extent the model appreciates in value in the 12-24 months after release).
Reason why I'm a bit skeptical is that BBR launched a ton of 275 models a while back (really a ton of models, something like 50 different variants), but all these models are really struggling to get sold 'on the open market' (think eBay and all its local varieties). They were all released for something like €300-400 at BBR, depending on the model, but nowadays most don't even reach €200 on eBay auctions.
Even though I believe it was Enzo Ferrari himself who said that "the 275 was too beautiful to be a Ferrari", it doesn't seem to hold through for the scale model versions of it.
