Default Re: EYEHAVEYOU - '06 Interlagos Blue / Imola Red ZCP 6MT

I collect 1:43 models of cars I've owned (and some I've only driven), however no one made an E46 in Interlagos Blue. To fix this, I had eddy at MIY Minimodels create one for me.

Here's the finished product:



It started out as a Minichamps E46 M3 in Silver Gray / Imola Red, like this:



The CSL wheels were taken off a Kyosho E46 GTR like this one:



The Minichamps model was stripped down and repainted in Interlagos Blue. The CSL wheels were added along with a few other minor tweaks, including removal of sunroof .







Unfortunately no updates to the 1:1, waiting for better weather to come around.

None of the other ones are custom, but pics are below. If you ever decide to have one made yourself, here's a CSL that was repainted in an Estoril-like color for some inspiration.

Some cars I've owned:



Some cars I've driven, mostly through Classic Car Club Manhattan (unfortunately way cooler than the ones I've owned):

The labor cost was actually pretty reasonable, I think I spent more buying the models themselves as those Minichamps E46 M3s are near unobtanium. If you ever did it, both the Minichamps E46 M3 and the E39 M5 model I'm aware of have opening hoods/detailed engines, so you could do an S62 swap as well!

If you're using Chrome, install the "Photobucket Embedded Image Fix" plugin and pics will work, has made looking through older forum threads bearable again. He definitely sold that custom model to another collector, but just an idea of what you could do

HAHA an S62 swap would be killer. I wonder if they could do a big wang and splitter.

If you like models you gotta check out this page.
