This is one of my favorite lead-sleds.

Thanks for building this particular kit.

Look forward too seeing your interpretation of WildCad, mainly cause it was built in Australia.

John... This is going to be another one of your Steller Creations. You will crush this out of the park like you always do on your builds. I can't wait to see what you do to this. You are always impressing all of us.

Wow this is going to be an expensive paint job.

According to bornrich.org, its special exterior paint is estimated at AU$200,000.

Lets see. 200,00AU to USD is $153,394. $153,395 times 1/25 is $6,135. We want to see every penny of that John. :D:D

I'm looking forward to seeing your interpretation of this. I remember reading that they flew a famous painter in from another country just to paint their car.

Put the fins on the roof, give it a Ford 2017 GT front end, use a 1963 T Bird rear but with jet exhaust taillights, paint it matte black and call it Bruce's BatCruiser for those wild nights in Gotham.

What makes the paint job worth $153k? 

Cool car, though. I can't wait to see the model.

That's quite a bit of body work. The grill looks like it will become the main styling feature. I like the smooth sides and the shortened trunk and hood look different.
