I never ever saw the movie . In fact, I never ever saw the Turbine car , except one time in traffic one time . I had one of the leased owners addresses, but he kept it in a garage off the street . I always wanted Chrysler to have made the car available as it had loads of potential . Ed Shaver

As Janne said, great to see something different built from this kit. That paintjob looks very good, and I like those stripes and other decals. Finishing looks great on this one, thanks for sharing these Turbine Cars.

Nicely done! I never saw the movie and do recall seeing pictures of the car a long time ago, maybe in a magazine article.

The only thing I would say is off a bit on your model is the size of the roof number. It could have been a little bit bigger...the only reason I noticed is the real picture beside the model!

I am jealous of your work on this! I'd like to be capable of making my own decals...one day!

Thank you everybody for your words! Thanks a lot!

I never seen the film till i bought the EZ-built-kit. There is a picture from it on the side and this makes me wondering. So i searched the web, ordered the movie and watched it second to second. Informations and pictures are hard to find from it, so i built it like the car in the movie with a couple of shotscreens. Made a lot of fun!

The bad was, that the decals from the kit didn't looks like the movie car. And, Toni, thats right: the number on the roof must be bigger. but there is no point to be jealous ;)
To make your own decals you only need
- Decalpaper clear or white,
- a good graficprogram like Photoshop and sometimes Office for letters,
- a photoprinter,
- Clearcoat,
- time and loss to make it.
not rocket science :D

It's the cost of the program and the photprinter that is keeping me from it!! Thanks, Dominik!!

Once again, very nice! You might be the first modeler to correctly paint the rear bumber coves body colour.

Very cool and clean work Dominik! I saw the movie in bits and pieces years ago, so your representation of the car is dead accurate. B)

Yeah, those bumper insets are a pain to paint as the one I did wasn't easy! :o
