Scorcher, I won't bother exchanging it, its been long since I bought it. I will just let the ML350 live with the Welly error. Yup, I am that goooood

@Cyrus43: I place my 1:24 on the table for your 1:18 Cayenne.
@PetrolinmyVeins: Congrats! Keep the pics rolling.
@Zibby: Lucky you, lovely model!

SOme quick pics of the M5. will post better ones later. The Rollcage still has to be painted from Black to white.

Work done on the car:

Car was completely striped down and sanded to almost sheet metal. Then interiors were stripped out completely and painted black. Including door panels etc. Rear Seats were stripped out and a rollcage was constructed. Two coats of white and 4 coats of clear were applied. Tire polisher on tires. Grille was removed and sanded to give it a flat feel instead of the usual bulging BMW look. Interior, engine bay and boot section painted in black. The HEadlights Taillights and Glasses are still a problem considering they were a little abused in earlier customization projects. Am thinking of something to sort them out.

Next step will be painting the roll cage to white so it can be seen. It is a 5 point roll over hoop with a cross brace construction as of now.


EDIT: Will also try to get the CSL colors somehow.
