That is the unaltered photo, and yes, it's 1/8 scale!

Really!??!!? I blew that up on my Mac at home and it looks like the background was blacked out with a magic marker. B)

It may have been retouched at some point, but not by me. It's as I found it.

URGENT BULLETIN FROM THE CORRECTIONS DEPARTMENT B) : I actually found the photo a long time ago, so I forgot the details. For the record, YES, I did black out the background (but didn't touch the car), and it's not 1/8, but 1/5 scale!

I don't have any other photos of that particular model, but here's another one from the same source, weathered to look raced. They do pretty nice work... :angry:

Here's some more photos of the same model. It's really amazing but I'm not gonna tell you where these photos come from because I have a feeling that Harry might be planning to tap this same source again in the future. Good luck hunting for it!

Mr. Moto-yes. you have found the source for this one!

Many thanks for keeping it a secret. You're right, I may go back there for future ROMs...they do some incredible work, don't you think?
