I painted the five spoke star wheels from the Forza Camaro yellow, lengthened the axles, painted the hub to color code them for each side, and threw them on the GTR to better match Nick Mason’s 1:1.

I also detailed the cockpit, adding a blue five-point harness with a red buckle, some buttons, knobs, and the like, and a silver and black shifter. On the outside I added some black paint in the vents and recesses to give the whole car some more definition.

She’s definitely not in mint condition but I love how the whole car turned out. If anyone can find an on card one for like 20 bucks (crazy, I know), please point me in that direction. But even if I do find one, this will always sit proudly right next to the mint one.
