RX-7 in half scale, hitting the road...

by brae  

Work has been completed on the RX-7 in half scale.  This lovely auto is on its way to Florida where it will be placed on the cake table at a friend's wedding.  This was a side commission and a super fun project to boot!  I've included some photos of the original car we were trying to emulate as well as links to the previous steps at the bottom.  Fingers crossed that it travels safely and provides some mini wow for the cake table.  :D  Sending out a huge congrats to the happy couple!  I am honored to have contributed to your special day.

The original:


Headlights and remote control

Half scale soda cans

Grill mesh, license plate and reflector detailing


Window masking and painting difficult parts

Primer prep and body paint

Interior detailing

Wheels and warping fix

Articulating chassis

Body work - adding skirts and spoiler from other kits

Trials and plans for the build

Introduction... - three kits to make one awesome auto

I would never have guessed in a million years that that's what the cans were for! How wonderful! I did wonder why the "ropes." I thought you were using them to make handling those tiny cans easier. The car looks spectacular! Great job. Your friend should be absolutely delighted.

I was right about the cans, though I did wonder why you were doing it, as I had assumed the car was for the contest build. Wonderful job on the car, you've given them something spectacularly unique for the cake table which can then be given a place of honor in their home as a cherished memory.

So amazing. I had a hunch as to what the tin cans were to be used for. The bride and groom will love it.It was not a simple project, but you masterfully created a real prize and heirloom.
