I am awestruck by this skill of yours.

I really really appreiciate your work.
Had a dream of becoming a car designer in my school days.

But your work is at par with the professionals brother.

All the best for your future.

PS. Could you share the tools that you are using to give the thermocol such clean shapes.
Thank you for your appreciation
There is just one tool: pen-knife But each model will need quite a few of them, though.

Almost 8 months since I last updated this thread. I was unable to find sufficient time for another model.
Now I have managed to complete this 2014 Volkswagen Passat.
Scale : 1:18
This time I have tried to add almost every possible detail, including door handles, wipers, shark fin antenna,etc. Hope you guys like this one too

Exclamation Handmade Scale Models

This is some really neat stuff, considering you enjoy model making so much, I'd strongly suggest you look to Automotive Design as a career option!

Saw this thread by chance. Great work.

Did you try out latex moulding option as suggested by side one earlier in the thread?

Amazing work man!
I too am looking at something like this,want to make a model of my own design for applying for scholarship in design.
Tried using clay( kids one) but that's too soft and got dry and rough in a while.
Thermocol seems to be an interesting proposition. From where do you source the cubes? And what tools also please( you mentioned pen knife if I remember correctly).
Any tips or something
