Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI TME (AUTOart 1/18)

An experiment to give a realistic look to an old unpretentious collection model by modifying and fitting joints of body panels.

Removed sunroof
Bumper mesh added
Headlights modified, turn signal reflectors made, lamps added
Replaced brake discs, adjusted suspension
Repainted wheels and added nipples
Made the shape of the tires is close to the shape of real tires
New exhaust system
Door handles improved, added door locks and windshield washer nozzles

Video here.

...aaand...












Before and after, in the last photo the usual version of the EVO 6, the other front bumper and wheels, the rest of the model is the same.

There's only a few places where it's apparent it's a model. Nicely done!

That's fantastic. I don't think the real car has such tight door gaps. Doesn't it damage the paint like that when you open the doors?
Really impressive work!
Also, how did you change the tire sidewall shape? That makes a big difference!
