Anyone who can look at that and not grin needs their pulse checked .

I like this car a lot. Should see the movie for his friends

thanks guys, appreciate it. As I seeminly become more of a starter than finisher of builds, here's the progress on Sally and the start of Lightning Mc Queen. Sally being a Porshce 911 GT3, Tamiya kit relatively box stock plus a little body work.
almost ready for the paint booth now
and Lightning, have started with a 2010 ZR1 corvette. Filling holes he dosen't need
I've done bigger (or worse ,depending on how you look at it) body mods before so will start smoothing him out later on today.

Sally is looking great Brett, looking forward to lightning...

Thanks Carl, Seeing as Sally was motoring along I decided to start on McQueen. First up fill all the un needed holes and vents
and as his headlights are "just stickers" put the lenses in those too, to blend in so they can be painted over

and a last couple for the night
now I know Sally doesn't actually have any sort of rear spoiler I really couldnt be bothered making up the plate necessary to replace it so I just left it really low. I did say there would be some fudged details along the way

These are looking awesome Brett! You're doing a great job recreating these cars in scale!!!

Yup, this is definitely the funnest thread on the forum.
Nice thing about Sally is you don't have to make many changes to a Porsche to make it look utterly feminine.

thanks guys Sally's pretty much done just got her eyes and eyebrows to do and finally got Docs front bumper done
Posted 26 October 2013 - 01:11 PM
finlly got lightning smoothed out
and have now started carving out his grin and building up his lip area
Posted 26 October 2013 - 02:11 PM
KACHOW !!! That is lookin' good, should do the version of him after the race against Doc, with all the tumblweeds stuck on his hood, or maybe the "Radiator Springs" version with the painted coves, metalflake paint & wide whites, after all most of the ones that are built are just the generic version. Oh yeah there's the one in the three wide finish with Lightnings tongue sticking out to make him longer for the photo finish. (My grandson reminded me of that one by bring all the different Lightning die-casts in for me to look at after he saw the Mater build up.) There is some "striping" in the Merc kit that can be used for Sally's "Tramp Stamp"

Doc looks great and sally also. Very creative work Brett..
