Bburago 1:64 Red Bull RB9

Posted by: jclevering in Member Blogs

I was in for a big surprise today! Unexpected finds are the nicest ones and this one is one the best finds. I did not read about this car anywhere yet so I was not aware of it's existence. In fact I did not find it; I would have walked out of the store if my girlfriend had not pointed to me to it. Earlier this year Bburago announced they would foray into 1:64 and their first cars were remash of Maisto castings. But the below car seems to be their first new cast into 1:64 and it seems they took my critisism to heart.

This is the 2013 Formula 1 Championship winning Red Bull RB9 and is made in both the version of Sebastien Vettel and Mark Webber.

Hi there,
I have this one in my collection. From the livery perspective I agree that the car is very nice and as close to the original as possible. But unfortunately it does not ride well - it is slow and too light, although I appreciate the rubber wheels, not plastic ones...
Cheers

I was reading your post. It seems you have the later RB10 model, not the RB9 shown here. They are quite different castings!
