This is an old thread, I see, but I'm looking for a 1:18 die cast miniature. Maisto makes two versions, one in blue with an extra "shell" in black and another that is red/yellow. I have the blue black one but would really like the red/yellow version. I've HEARD NewRay makes one as well, but have yet to actually see or find one (other than the 1:43 size and 1:24 size). Is it any better (or all that much worse) in 2012?
