I just did this Midget for a client of mine. The livery is made up. I used miniature rivets where needed. I like the colours and design on this car. It was fun to do but a lot bloody work. :lol:

Great job there, love the detail. BTW the photography isn't too shabby either.

And again with the WOW!

Might I ask what you use for masking?

Neil, I reckon they might well be real heads, shrunken to size.

Impressive would be an understatement! Very very nice!
I'm gonna give you an engine low to the ground... extra thick oil pan to cut the wind from underneath you. It'll give you thirty or forty more horsepower. I'm gonna give you a fuel line that'll hold an extra gallon of gas. I'm gonna shave half an inch off you and shape you like a bullet. I'll get you primed, painted and weighed, and you'll be ready to go out on that racetrack. Hear me? You're gonna be perfect!

Man, I just cant stop looking, 1st few times in awe, then jealousy, then I try to look for flaws, and now I'm Back to the awe/jealousy stage.
That Is good
. Almost makes me want to go to the speedwat this w'end[damn, its winter].
but it probably wouldn't be as good as looking at this peice and with childhood memories

I think I've mastered it, I can see a heap of magical sparks as my microwave shrinks those rivets :)

No, that's the Monogram original. But the EJ's is a copy of the Monogram.
