    Here are some shots of my cutaway Tamiya Williams model. I've posted shots of cutaway models before, but this is my most detailed yet. Some things of note (not sure the pics will show these, private me for bigger files).
    - progressive cutaway The body is cut to show the tub, tub is cut to show the seat, seat is cut to show what's underneath it (fire bottle and plumbing)
    - weathered appearance to the electronics in the sidepod
    - real rubber / duct tape holding electronics to the tub
    - many turned aluminum pieces replace the plastic pieces (intake trumpets etc.)
    - cutaway wheels and tires
    - homemade 1/12 scale tire stickers and HANS® device
    - aftermarket tobacco decals
    Enjoy! These take a year of evenings and weekends to make! I also post an overall shot of all the cutaways I've made, including the Ferrari (641, Prost) that sold some time ago. I miss it! Regards gm

    Amazing. I assume you have a non-cut version of the same car also for display purposes :)

    Speedy - the other side of each car is left intact, so if you desire, you can show that side too. I have some display cases with mirrors on the back, so that works well.

    Great job, looks like it takes a lot of work and patience. Did you have to scratch build the interiors??
