Hey John, is it 1:1 Scale?! :blink:

That's Mind Blowing! Your attention to small details is perfect, and your Alclad work is excellent. Also those different shades of metals, are very good looking, just like they are in 1:1 car. Those small things make the model look much better, and your engine really looks fantastic.
