This is my newest creation/interpretation of a VW Karmann Ghia as racecar.
It got homemade widened fenders out of Polystyrol and Putty.
The body is from the Tamiya static kit and as chassis i used a MR015MM,
which was rebuilt as 2.4 Ghz version.
The rims came from the Porsche 934 and tires are slotcar tires from Ortmann.

Holy crap. It's a little rough around the edges (window trims) but that is some nice work. The paint isn't bad either, I don't know what your intention was but it looks well-worn, like it just came back from a race. :)
