it sure will, it has to look up to something

Tamiya makes some good models indeed. Real rubber tires too!

Sidenote djomlas: You're such a wizard with photoshop...
Do you think you could resize your images a bit before you post them? 800 pixels wide tops?

i think im about 80% done.
all thats left is some fine tuning, and fixing headlights and tail lights and some other little odds and ends.
heres another pic, color is pretty much the same as my car, but the light in my room doesnt show it that well, its making it blue for some reason, i will get better pics when its all done
but you can see soft top and roadster humps

there are 2 couse u have a choice to buils a special edition boxster with speedster hups and color matched wheels, or regular one with soft top and chrome wheels.
but it jsut happend that the special edition wheels are the same ones that i have on my car and i have a hardtop, so its kinda nice.

attention to detail is pretty crazy, even the exhaust tip is 'chrome' add on piece.

i will post more pics later on, im in school til 10pm or so, i test fitted it and the front for some reason sits too high, so i have to play with the suspension to give it a nice stance.

Heres a tip for the exhaust manifolds, get some redish orangish spray paint, mask the muffler and the tip, Spray some of the spray paint into the air and wave the manifolds past the still floating paint, give it that realistic rust look.

So you got me looking into models from this thread and I ended up coming across a diecast of a Boxster that I thought was pretty cool. Looks just like mine!

So I ordered it for my desk at work. Maybe kinda silly, but looks really cool.

Here is the link:

that's very cool DJ.

If i send you mine, will you finish it....lol/jokes. i have the same boxster model 1/24 and it's been sitting in my closet since the day i bought it. the best part is that i have a bag of paint and brushes with it sitting collecting dust.

i think you just gave me inspiration to finish the job.
