Topic: Now I just need a 1/24 Toledo Speedway...

When I saw Murilee's post a few weeks ago about models, I poked through the site and saw they had a 5th-gen civic model.  So obviously, I had to get one.

The real car in action (thanks Murilee for sending me this picture):

If you ever thought building a rollcage was hard, you haven't tried building a 1/24 rollcage out of the plastic frames that hold model pieces

Wait a minute I thought we were making models at 1/1 scale.
No seriously.. I would be in for a model contest.

I'd love to see how you get that holy hand grenade on the front of your model.

I am already thinking I need to have all of the action figures to go with the car.
Including the Black Knight stuck on the back.

I'd kinda like to do a Jalopnik post about your model. Got any more photos? If so, email them to me, preferably in high resolution.

One of our team members also made a Pinewood replica of version 1.0 of our car:

Needs more duct tape

"This is the scene where I get shot," Bronson said. "I have these little squibs that explode to make it look like bullets are hitting." "Fascinating," said Bergman. "I never knew how they did that." "You mean," asked Bronson, "you don't use machine guns in your movies?"

You mean like the 1:24 duct tape on this model?
