I've gotten pretty good at these things; but it took me awhile to come up w/my own answer. I tried looking away from the details like the lugnuts and engine wiring/plumbing, and at some of the basic parts. Eventually I realized the tires looked like kit pieces; the whitewall definitely looked like an insert (and inserted a bit too deep inside the tire), the backside of the tire looked simplified, the camber in the front looked odd...and the halo around the numbers made me think they were stickers/decals, in 1:1 scale that halo would likely be invisible. This was a good one...the engine and a lot of details really make it look real. This one was a lot harder for me than most of the previous ones.

Wow, You got me this time! I have been saving the pics on my Mac and taking closer looks at them there. I was too impatient this time! That Indy car was another tough one, but I could research that one. This is 1/8th scale, isn't it?

Right, no offense or anything, but it's Sunday now, and we still have no answer. Is there some bureaucratic problem we should know about?

Close vote, though. A lot of you were fooled, but it's a model!
