Interesting build, I drove one for 6yrs and have looked for a model for a long time. Where did you get yours and how is the quality? Keep up the great work and I'll be following this one.

Yeah Definitely post some pics of it if you find some, would love to see it.

@ Chris-Nice box. When you build it you should try to make that hood and reproduce the NOTW sticker.Always loved that solar yellow release series color. :lol:

Jason.... Trust me I already have plans on scratch building the bBist hood to make it look like that. I even picked up some Sacle Motor Sports Carbon fiber decals and I also picked up a different Tamiya race car kit since it had the same exact wheels as I have on my ride. I am also going to scratch build the spoiler too. I need to mess around and try to duplicate some stickers and try to print my own decals.

That is looking great! You have done a nice job so far. On a side note sorry to hear that your work is cutting your job. I have been in your shoes before and the two times I have been laid off work in the past year and half, I kept myself busy with building my models to help keep my mind off things.

Everytime I look at this thread it inspires me to get working on building a copy of my 1:1 xB
