No doubt as to the purpose of this car, its to go fast, scare the owner and make up for his being light in the trousers :lol:
But the model is fab!

Have you managed to acquire it or get him to make you another one yet? The model looks stunning.

Hi Steve....Yes, the one pictured I bought.....

Not sure if it was the first one he built, but just happy that he reserved one for me, since he had planned to build several of the blue anyways... :) :)

Also....he is building another 964, in orange, with custom specs for me.... :D :D

That model is superb. I wanted one for myself, but it is way above the price I am willing to pay for a model.

Wow :o Orange is super cool. I would have it in orange if I was getting one done. I love the blue, but the orange just pops out the screen at me.

Those are coming along very nicely but what I'm really seeing there are stacks of $100 bills. :mrgreen: Can't wait to see them done, especially the Ferrari.

Orange RWB finished... :D :D

Orange is a "loud" color that commands attention and can be quite overwhelming....

With that said, I made a final request for the front bumper lower lip to be painted black....

Now that, along with the black mirrors, wheels and upper part of the wing being the same color, it balances out and works together in perfect harmony.... :D :D

That was a good call blacking out the front lip, and as you said, the model looks better balanced that way. A stunning piece for sure.

Black lip (and especially orange) was the right call.
Beautiful!

Stunning modelling Tommy

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.
