Wow, missed this post until now. What an amazing build! It could definitely be mistaken for the real thing.

Just curious, what color did you use? It looks perfect. Is it the Gravity Colors Eagle T1G? Maybe on a 1/12 the metal flakes seem more in scale than on a 1/20.

Oh well, Thomasz. This has now firmly moved onto my must have list. Hot damn, that model of yours looks incredible, almost too good to be true :).
I don't see any supports underneath the car. I thought these things were too heavy for their suspension. I thought I remembered that there are supports on the 312 and similar cars from that period, even in the MFH promo shots. Not seeing them helps with the illusion of this being a real car. Or can they rest - briefly (for photo purposes) on their own 4 wheels without collapsing, but long term those supports are still necessary. Regardless - brilliant work! Plus your flicker has a few other jaw droppers in there. Well when I say "a few" I mean all of them. With the watches there - are you per chance a clock maker or something? I just need an excuse to believe this level is not attainable for mere mortals :).

As always, I'd love to see a more detailed wip thread (unless I've missed it)..
Cheers,
Roman
