Here is one I'm playing with. I had a new Revell ZR1 that I robbed a few parts from. What do you think of this project? I'm going to finish it but am not in a hurry. I painted it Tamia Racing white with Olds engine blue for the stinger and stop light red for the hash marks.

It does look that way but it is painted an off white with the blue and red paint. The body is the kit body that I grafted the sunvisors and rear convertible bonnet from the resin body. Next is the carbon fiber decals under the hood on the rockers and front spoiler. I'm going to build it with carbon black wheels, red calipers and red seats.

Mike, thats funny but I have a few hundred projects of my own. Jeff said it best. "Model builders are very optomisitic people, We have hundreds of projects in waiting and know that they take us a few months to do on average. We know we can't build them all but we don't stop trying!"
