I lolled a little then just felt sad. You made me sad. Does making people sad make you happy? Does it fill that void inside you? The void you're trying to fill with a Zonda? A fake Zonda? That will ultimitely leave you feeling sad... just like you've made me feel.

what annoys me is if people have the skills to make a replica kit why dont they put their time into creating something original.

For the same reason as joiners aren't architects. Skills with tools don't equate to creativity or being clever.

Why? As far as I know the Mercedes is a perfectly good car as it is.

No that thing is ugly.


this is the model that im working with, end result will look excatly like the 3d model.


If you can do that, why not do your own car. Post up some 3d images and let PH help you refine it.

Or the Stratos zero from the '70s.

here you go, right side rear quarter pannel that was finished cutting today. you can jude for your self on the quality


Is that a model or full size? If it’s full size then expect a law suit to be heading your way soon. Not only are you trying to copy a very exclusive car but one that is still in production. In effect you are steeling and devaluing the Pagani brand. Not clever I think.

As others have said, if you have the skills then have the guts to produce your own design, take inspiration if you will but have some respect for the original

I do like the idea of making replicas of concept cars though, rather than copying something that made it into production. Actually, Andy also restored a concept car from the 50's. Weird looking thing, but a huge amount of work to restore:
