Hi, this is my first post and first time here, I'll try to keep it short and the stories to a minimum so I can get to the point. First off I'm not really into making models, more so Diecast Metal and Fast and Furious cars 1/18th scale or close to it. The problem is the Gold Supra from 2 Fast 2 Furious was only released once by Racing Champions and they are over $100 on eBay. So my only options are either buy a tiny Hot Wheels car or buy a decent priced 1/25 scale model. Like I said I like the larger scaled cars so I want to go for the model car but there's a few obstacles that I need to get around before I attempt this, otherwise I'm stuck with a Hot Wheels car lol.
Here's the Car I'm wanting to buy:
And here is the first problem (Supra from the first movie):
Before I even list whats wrong can you see what the problem is by comparing these 2 pictures? If not, they are the same exact car but just re skinned with a different paint job and decals.
This is how it is supposed to look, now obviously they have different body kits but that I might be able to live with, if there's no possible easy solution. So the 2 obvious are the Spoiler and the Rims, so I want to ask: is it possible to somehow change those out cheaply enough by buying single parts or would I have to buy whole kits just for 1 part each that might be close to those? So the 3 main concerns are Major: RIms, Spoiler, Minor: Body Kit, any help would be appreciated.
Then my other concerns would be painting as I do not have anything for painting models and would like to know what all needs to be painted. So I obviously have to paint the body parts and if I go ahead with this what color should I go with? Then the next part would be what else do I have to paint, if the dash is black that's fine but what all do I have to paint on my own, rims, seats, dash, etc.?
So basically would it be worth going through all this trouble (buying car, paint, parts) just for one car or should I just pass? Or (not sure if this is even a thing people do) but would someone be willing to help with painting/parts for a cost?
Last thing, I hope it was OK to post this and that I posted this in the right area.
