my fiance rocks!!
« on: January 08, 2015, 08:42:53 PM »
So this year I got a very special present from my fiancée (I proposed to her on Christmas day. I mean after this how could I not?) Its every car guy's dream right?! Lol. It is a perfect 1:24 scale replica of my RX-7 that sits right outside my house. Even all the way down to the shift knob. The pics speak for themselves.

The guy she got to make it for her did it all by her sending pics of my car to him and making adjustments here and there over time. It took him 11 months to create this masterpiece!! (If i do say so myself) Granted I do have different rims and a spoiler now but he was almost done with the model so there was no time to adjust it since I bought the new stuff while he was wrapping up the model car build. Needless to say this is probably one of the best Christmas presents I have ever gotten. Thought you guys would enjoy this so i wanted to share. :drive: 8) :)

The rims are actually Rays TE37SL's in gunmetal gray with the Special Edition stickers on them. These are the rims I really wanted to put on the real car scale, but my pockets aren't quite deep enough for that yet.

All pictures of the build are below for you guys to enjoy.

If you ever treat that girl poorly, there are now 150 guys in line that would like a model of their own, that will treat her like a queen :D
You got   a good one



-also when you mod your car further are you going to mod this model as well?

Looks like a lot of expert styrene work, actually.

Amazing work and a pretty awesome fiancée I'd say.
