I built my McLaren about 15 years ago and so far nothing has fallen off it yet.

To take a look at one being beautifully built up and super-detailed have a look here:
I have one in my (worryingly large) "to do" pile which I will get to eventually. Keep looking and you'll get one at a good price.

The thought of taking a razor saw to a $250 kit borders on the insane but the guy pulled it off with style.

Now I'm going to make the hairs on the back of your necks stand up, I'm not really interested in building it, I just want the finished product..is that possible anywhere? Or do you just need to build them? ps I wasn't aware you had to do the paint yourself, thats crazy.
i'm sure there are professional builders out there. Does anyone have any experience of using one and cost etc?

As you can see from David Lawson's completed model, ash, it can be done, even to a more-than-acceptable standard by an average modeller like me. Admittedly, however, David is a model-maker extraordinaire.
how do people paint them so precisely with straight lines no runs and make them perfect?
Built models do appear on eBay from time to time. I think the last one I saw made about $300.

There are vendors "out there" who sell the appropriate tobacco decals. I've seen them advertised but can't remember who it was
Yeah well I'm after some Tamiya's I like the Minichamps but for the bigger scales they are so expensive and most of them don't have Tobacco sponsorship, I don't like the non Tobacco cars.
