Big things with little cars

No pictures of mine at the moment, but I found a 1/18 Kyosho Audi R8 for just $3.93. It’s missing the mirrors, the right taillight lens, and the black insert from the wing, and three of its windows have a chip missing, but otherwise it’s in excellent condition. Just needs a good wiping down.

For those who don’t know, this retailed for ~$120 or so. I’m planning on finding a similar, cheaper model in the same scale to try to salvage the missing parts from. I realize they won’t be perfect, but I kind of prefer it that way. In fact, I might try to add some primer patches and etch spider-web cracks around the missing pieces of the windows. The rattiness gives it a certain charm.
