Love this car and model. Simple, pure and fun. I have to say this, I take my photos with a phone, and used a poster for a background. I think the results are awesome. It took a few minutes to do everything. I just need to dust the model next time.

Great job on the photos, the backdrop worked really well for that color on the model! :eusa_clap:

I like the real car, but I'm starting to get tired of Minichamps (and other prominent diecast makers) releasing model after model with sealed bodies and flat chassis.
I got into 1/18 scale because I want detail. Opening panels, working suspensions and steering, detailed engines and undercarriages. I'm willing to pay for it. Make it.
Great pix!

At this point I just want to have fun. A camera phone works. I could do better, but at this point I am fine with it.

I would love an open Ro80. I think it is an interestingly enough car to have one open. Show off the engine. Four door cars always look cool opened up, too. Instead it is a plastic, solid model. Not as much of a toy as other model makers.

It is a fascinating car, for sure. Was on the fence getting one as it’s sealed. But it looks excellent as do your pics. Very nice :-)

Very appealing subject and it's a long time overdue to be made in 1/18 scale. It's a lot more impressive in this scale than the smaller 1/43 scale models by Minichamps. Very nice pictures by the way.
