Finally was able to finish the 3rd one.
Had previously done the Silver and white cars.
I think that this is my favorite of the 3.
I used the 2002 AMG car because of the silver mirrors on it

From start to waxing it and taking a picture it was about 90 minutes.
You just have to be careful and take your time with the NPR.
The back bumber is the worst because it is plastic and you have to be sooo carefull :scared
The hardest one to do was the silver.
The wing takes a while because I had to go over it with a paint marker 2-3 times.
I am really thinking of doing the yellow one when I can get a spare cheap off of ebay.

Jeff, that looks great. Scale18.com has a company called GEMA listed on its site which sold these modded Maistos and actions. Here's the link to the listing. GEMA

Nice work Jeff! This looks hot in black. :cool You're so right about need to take your time with the back bumper. I messed up my silver one because I was to liveral in the use of NPR. Some parts of the what should be a silver bumper is stripped down to the black base. :badidea :badidea

Thanks Winston :cheers
Never saw hose before.
Not sure if I like them better or not :confused
Those look like Mustang wheels on the red one.

The wheels make the car look muscular. The front and rear wheels are different. Something like those on ferraris.

Sweet :tongue !!! I have one just like that...except for the spoiler and I did some stuff with the interior. There are also "street" tires on mine, you can see they fill up the wheelwell more. I like these just as much as the CLK-GTR street car.

The wing is from a autoart lexus GS, the tires were from various sources. Sorry I don't know the exact car, I just have a box I put my extra tires in.
