This is my first attempt to recreate a model from an actual car, so it wont be 100% exact, but I really dig the 1:1 that I wanted it atleast in my scale collection. :)

The interior on the 1:1 is not stock, and I've never really used putty on a serious level, so no drastic changes there. I guess I'm going more for the stance and paint overall.

Waiting on wheels, and going to try my hand at ignition wires and BMF for the first time, once it all gets here in the mail.

Looks good! When you do your BMF Get nice and relaxed-there's a lot of chrome on that one!

Not the best pic, and still have a bit to go along with some better lighting and polish, but I just wanted to check the stance.

And that BMF was a challenge, but for my first time I am pretty impressed with the outcome.

 

How's she lookin?
