If you are looking for recrations for the Original Classics, Expect to pay in the region of around 1300-1500 bucks. Yea...They are really really expensive.

Excellent!

*Check Briansmodelcars' tutorials if anything can be done. It needs a racing harness, custom gauges and the likes.
*The wheels need a fresh coat of black. The silver lip can go since the wheels don't carry any offset anyway.
*I don't think matte black will be a good idea if you plant to paint it further. Try glossy black if budget permits.

Please clarify in this thread on your further plans, so that all can comment further.

Dont touch the Porsche ones as they are Maistos. You can get them cheaper else where. As far as the Audi ones go, most of them like the A8, Q7 etc are made by Kyosho which are expensive. Detailing is really good but at about 5k + a piece its a bit pricey.

The pricing is seen in the showroom display next to each model.

I have a can of Gloss black and Matt Black. Matt Black WILL NOT be used on this car. Do post a link about the Custom guages and all. Also, Im thinking of removing one of the seats and Adding a Nitrous tank there. Lets see. How Will red Wheels Look???

RED WHEELS WILL LOOK BAD.

If you have a nice nitrous cylinder, then I suggest you get rid of the seat. Just wait a bit, I'll post links here or PM you.

Did you mean awful or awesome? Just wait till the entire car is done!

Cyrus' 1:24 R34 is a Maisto.
