Nicely done, I love it! one of my all time favorite cars. This bburago looks like a much higher end version. What wheels did you use?

Black paint really adds to the model, did the same last week with my Hot wheels version, but yeah the wheels seems different?!

The wheels are semi-artisan. I have not chosen the wheels of Hot Wheels because are wrong.
Thank you

Wow that looks absolutely amazing.Very well done custom work. My previous attempts on modifying the Bburago GTO always ended in disappointments and i ultimately settled for a HWE 288 GTO. Do you have more pics i would like to see what you have done to the rear. Did you do anything with the panel gaps around the doors? The gaps on two of my bburago are so huge that you can the interior from outside.

It's very well done! I think in some area, it's even better than the HWE 288 GTO.
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.

She looks absolutely stunning Alekar. Looks better than the HWE's rendition of the mighty 288 GTO. All the small details such as the struts, revised emblems, ducts etc makes this a truly amazing model. Too bad about the gaps around the doors unfortunately it cannot be rectified easily. I too was quite annoyed with this and it was a somewhat common flaws with many of the early Bburago models.

You've even got spanners in the tool roll and the 'leather' strap and buckle is excellent - 1000% better than the ghastly original plastic strap ! :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

The fire extinguisher looks far more detailed than the usual moulded ones I have seen in 1/18 - is it custom build too??

I think the panel gap size looks quite OK from the pictures.
Can the headlights be opened? So far I have seen 1 modified 288 GTO with functional headlights, made by MRM using Elite 308 headlights.
Feel free to have a look of my collection on DX.
