That is an awesome and ambitious build I won't call it a "little upgrade" for anything involving a complete repaint LOL.

Look forward to the finished product and it is always great to see a custom work that mimics the real 1/1 counterpart.
Thanks your like 😆 but I think I still far of you guys.😅

Actually it’s not 100% copy my real one,only the color is same,another part is I wanna make for real in the future 😆

it's a bit unusual car in 1:18, but still a cool project. i like the wheels, they are not just a nice color, but they are well detailed too.
a shame with the door fitment but things like that are pretty hard to do something about.
