This is a little project I've done over the Christmas, finished model will be displayed shortly. I have to make some side windows, add some black under the bonnet and clean up some paint marks before polish it, but it's mostly done. Here are some pics of the detailing process.

fantastic work. It begs the question though, why didn't they make it properly in the first place though?

Nice job Thorst! The interior and engine bay really pops now which was probably the dullest areas of the original model :10:

I actually like the HWE F50 it has a certain charm to me, I know I would be happy to pay 50 bucks for models with that level of detail again.

Great work though, I will check in when its done.

Lovely mod on the F50. Looks really good now.

I also want to ask, how good(or bad) is the base Hot Wheels F50? The Elite is certainly not the easiest model to find which means the regular Hot Wheels F50 is probably the only option for me.

Awesome work :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:
The yellow disc calipers definitely brings up the model one step above HWE :drool5:

Thanks!This is the first edition and it needed a lot of color to remove the toy factor. The base is actually quite good and it's not much different than the Elite version.

Thanks bud! I just went along with the colors I though would look the best. It's not 100% accurate in any way, but I like it like this. The model is much more alive when you see it now.

Thanks! I agree. the base model ain't too bad, but why they used that grey plastic on the undercarriage and interior instead og black seems really weird to me!?

Thanks! Imo the Elite isn't worth it! Especially with todays prices. That's why I decided (many years ago) to mod this one instead. You will need a lot of black color though....

Thanks bud! It looks good beside my F50GT with the added detail.

Thanks! I planned to use black calipers, but yellow looked much better on these rims. I also grinded down the round shape of the wheel nuts and added the logo on a more realistic looking rim.
