That seems like a very nice looking car - but the pictures are way too small to be able to see any detail

Is it based on a Z3?

Won't be a z3 if it's built by Modena, the cars were built specifically for the movie as far as I know. Custom frame and very accurate. (rear lights might be a little off)

Here is another one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C59X31zQNz0
virtually identical to originals (also just goes to show what a good DNA has done especially with their dash)

Why don't you post these photos on your other thread where you are asking for a better set of panels or moulds ?

Mattie69 - Nice job on the restoration Matt.





Hard to tell from the photos, but is the colour a very dark grey, rather than a black?

Either way, I think it makes the car look more subtle than the 'in your face' Ferrari Red.

Enjoy, Paul.

Don't get me wrong, your car looks stunning. I'm just surprised that you are already looking to start again to build a better car. What areas on this one would need to be improved? It looks really convincing already.

I thought I would build one that is an exact replica in terms of size and shape and set it up for a late model Ferrari v12, I believe you can buy the 3D info and have a plywood buck burned out or have a foam plug cut, not sure if anybody has done one yet , or if anybody outthier does this type of work, would be interested in having 5-10 bodies made

South Africa might be a bit too far away for you, but this guy does the kind of 'buck' work you are describing.

http://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/gar...dy-buck-313330

http://www.rodsnsods.co.uk/forum/gar...-project-83285

So I assume (but donít know for sure) that other people are doing the same 'somewhere'.

Hope that helps, Paul.
