I shaved the stock spoiler and made a molded PVO spoiler with styrene and putty

I've been collecting 1/18 scale diecast since the 1980's and have modified a few, so I can appreciate the "craftmanship" in this one. :thumbup:

I keep up with the diecast hobby too...

I'm a little surprised with the millions and millions of cars put out, and new ones coming out all the time (I.E., especially Hot Wheels...) that there is not a nice realistic SRT-4 put out

Hot Wheels just recently put out a very realistic 1990 Honda EF Hatch.... and there is already a 1/64th scale new Dodge Dart out there...

That 1st gen Neon Drag car mentioned earlier in this thread is a bummer

yeah i figured it would be damn near impossible to get it to look like an r/t, i would be fine with srt rims though.

have you done one with the correct height SRT spoiler?

That was my goal with one of the red Maisto's... have not done it yet tho... seems like just putting extensions on both sides and re-mounting it (?)
