    Scott, these are beautifl works of art. The detail is incredible that you have done. I have to add to my collection. I am haveing a display case custom built, I guess I will have to call the maker and have him to add a couple more shelves, to hold he extra cars and weight.

    They're just repainted using automotive spray paint.

    Looks good, but I can see some red on the nose of the 512. I'm going to totally strip my 512 of all its paint, dissassemble it and make it black, blue and add a clearcoat ontop of it, or maybe a black F40 with black wheels:)

    Very nice! How did you repaint the cars? What paint did you use?

    Im thinking about repainting my 360 to something special...possibly Grigio Ingrid.

    If you find out how to fix the Enzo hood, let me know...mines the same way!

    This seems very promising...

    i know Hot Wheels is coming out with a black Enzo, but i could just buy any existing model and paint it other, more obscure colors, like orange or silver or white...

    Anyone know what the best paint would be to use to repaint 1:64 models...? Since i'll eventually have 399 1:64 Enzos, i want to paint some in accordance with the real ones, in existence... Sort of like a physical registry; i could even attach notes to the back of the little packages they come in... :)

    Oy Vey. LOL DES! :)

    Scott - very interesting, and well done. Where did the shields go?

    Joe

    P.S. If I could find the perfect NART blue, I would definitely repaint one of my 550s.

    Jordan, eventually, i'd like to... There was a thread about an Enzo registry that i copied and printed out... Even the site it linked was printed out and i put all of that stuff in a folder labeled Enzo Registry... There's not a complete registry, even of the cars that have already been built and delivered, but i'll take every bit of information i can get... A physical registry would be awesome, i think, but it will take lots of time... Slowly, it'll happen...


    Joe V., i've almost 100 of them, already... Why not go the distance, right...?

    I agree - if you're going to do something, might as well do it right. Well done!

    Hey DES, I've got another idea. Why not making the correct numberplate on each Enzo? Lol
