Wow... I got one of these to sort out. It was an unpainted 1/32 NSR Ford GT Mark IV slot car so I went for a more modern look. Carbon fiber stripe and a gun metal base topped off with gold rims. Lovely;) I also went with a little more detail using what was in my tool box. It was a fun project and a very nice model from the Italians. Well done NSR...

An awesome job. The paint and overall finish is great. And the driver looks like "Tattoo" from Fantasy Island!

Very nice! The work is top notch. The driver seems to be out of proportion, but I'm sure he came in the kit that way. You should be proud.

Chris, my compliments to you for pulling off such a nice build out of a 1/32 slot car. The Mk IV is one of my favorite racecars of all time, and your version with its carbon fiber etc blends modern technology with classic styling for a remarkable look.

lillakev, as far as the driver goes, I'll see your Tattoo and raise you Dr Miguelito Loveless from The Wild Wild West.
