Default Needs moar turbo but it's cool

I don't know if it is a repost, I think is the first time I see it. Enjoy.

Yeah, it's a repost. And frankly, it's not even a very good model. I mean, what good is a tiny replica of the charcoal canister if the builder couldn't even be bothered to create a tiny replica of the charcoal canister purge solenoid to sit next to it on the pax side shock tower? It's just shocking the sort of shoddy craftsmanship and lackluster attention to detail that passes for acceptable these days...

I've never seen that thread, very impressive work. Lots of time on their hands. Love the rims.

OMG, total respect for the workmanship! I would have gone as far as painting the lexan body red... then given up!

Wow, ******* wow!

I've always wondered how people play w/ pics of actual cars and end up making them look like models... Care to explain Brain?

I did it by mistake once, and I was like, WtehF?

EDIT: wait... did you just take a really detailed large photo and scale it way down?
