Z4 Motorsport finally complete - 1/10th scale with a full scale heart

I've had this model sitting half finished for years now. Recently I started a hobby retail business, so I dug it out and finished it off in the hope it will be one of our signature in-the-window vehicles.

So I give you..... the Hobby Galaxy Z4, 1/10th scale!

She has of course been highly modified, with superior handling and a scale top speed of around 500 kph (312 mph) on electric power, or 600kph (375mph) on nitro fuel. The tire paint looks great from mid-range but close up it's a bit of a blob. Yes, I will fix that by adding some detail but how cool is tire paint? I love the stuff, screw the haters. Colour is a little light (could do much better next time) but it's only obvious when you see the two together.

I plan to sticker her up, and then follow suit with the full scale version. The real thing has a wing and slicks complete with white tire paint waiting to go on. Once complete those pics with the 1/10th...... now they will be something special.

If anyone has any ideas about how I could use both the full scale version and the 1/10th version in a video I'm all ears! Something needs to be done to immortalise these two before I crash them both. Possibly at the same time.
