My Only Hotwheels Ferrari FXX Custom( Enzo Base)

It was almost 2 years ago when my friend Third commissioned me to make him a Ferrari FXX in 1:64 scale, because at that time, Mattel and Kyosho didn't have a casting available yet. The nearest casting to the FXX then was using a Hotwheels Ferrari Enzo as base car.


I did fabricate the whole rear wing and the front lip, removed the lights also...
the only problem for me back then was extending the whole rear part of the car.
And I never did. So we stuck with the plan to just leave the rear as is, not extending the back like the original FXX. The wheels came form a Jada Ford GT.

and so here is the outcome...






Good thing Mattel and Kyosho already came up with these
because this FXX of mine was really a difficult one to do hehe!
