I have to admit the Honda S2000 is one car I've always liked. I've thought once the kids go on to college or the PT dies, I'd get a Miata. After checking the price on these, in four or five years, they'll be a great bargain. I'd love to have one in 1:1 scale just like your build although I'd like the roll bars in either black or chrome oh......and left hand drive. :)

I love this car, saw it on model scientist and you really did a awesome job on it. The wheels and stance are perfect, engine bay and paint are flawless as well. I like everything about it and wish I could own a 1:1 version.

That is a seriously good looking model. Usually when someone lists the mods or add ons on a build I'm like, "yeah, yeah, I can see the changes." But I'll bet a good portion of us here wouldn't be the wiser if you said it was box stock, so thanks for pointing out the good stuff. All your mods look very realistic and the paint looks great. Well done.

^ hehehe , thanks , thats a great compliment there .... the real car doesnt have much either , but the owner of the real car goes for the engine detail and power , thats what he is known for ..... im still learning , just trying to keep building and learn new techniques.....
