    DES,
    Very nice. It might be an untapped segment of 1:24 or 1:25 scale, since most are 1:43 and 1:18, with that gap in between. A 1:24 Enzo would look great.

    If you want a better looking 1/24th Enzo, let me know. I'll build you a 1/24th Enzo that will look 10x better detail wise than those metal things.

    Of couse, it will cost a lot more money too, depending on how much detail you want. :)

    Here's an example of some of my work

    Unfotunately, the pictures aren't that great. Here's another set of photo's.

    Well, that link takes you to the front page.

    Get in, go to the cars section, then cars archives, then McLaren MP4/7 Tamiya 1/20th (last McLaren Listed).

    Oh, and I'd even make it Yellow, or any color you want.

    Sean, those look great... Maybe having something custom made is a good idea, down the line... i'll certainly consider it, thanks... :)

    Hmmmm, about time us 1/24 'ers got our props! ;) Actually, a big chunk of my collection is in 1/24 scale. I also have 15-20 1/24 plastic kits. DES, Tamiya makes a 1/24 scale Enzo kit. You oughta give it a try. You might surprise yourself! Umm, second thought it might be better to start off on a smaller, less technical model first! Either way, once you get your skills down, your collection will grow by leaps and bounds 'cuz there are soooo many more different models in plastic than die-cast.

    Dave

    BTW, I did buy the red 355 Spider kit like you have. I'm just going to detail it and change the interior to tan.
