Finished this one up as well, not much to say about it really,  I used Scale Finishes Gulf Oragne , I used carbon fiber decals on the wing, and on the front piece's in front of the front tires ( I have no idea what to call them)

Nice.

 

What makes it a fax machine?  Multi-sheet feeder?

No, it is not,  the slang term fax machine is Jeremy Clarkson making fun of the name Mclaren gave this car,  basically, MP4-12C is something that would be used for say, a fax machine name, and not a car, thats all it is, just making fun of the name

Those would probably classify as "splitters" just FYI

 

And yes, the car looks amazing!

I'm guessing Jonathan's question is about the things at the front refers to the louvers in front of the front wheels. I don't know what they're called either. The splitter would be the horizontal plate under the nose.
