, well I am so obsessed that I built a scale model of my car when I had to move away from my 744ti to go to grad school, check it out:

real car:

model:
http://www.pbase.com/highboost740/model

It started as a 1/24 Testors 760 turbo model but I just filled in the holes and left the 760 badge off, I think it turned out decent. I used actual Volvo metallic paint same code as my real car and actual Volvo clearcoat. I have another one of these models sealed and plan on really doing a good job on the next one. The only things that weren't great about this one was headlights are euro style, I didn't paint in the black in between the taillights, the wheels (although I did find some custom ones) they don't exactly match my real car and the (undetailed) engine does not show a turbo. :( But I can still stare at it and admire it in the same sort of way I do my real car. :)

Ok, now this is going to sound obsessive.

Interesting that it seems to have a B21f style updraft K-jet manifold on it. That'd be a nice mod in real life. lol!

I noticed that ole school looking intake mani too. Engine detail sucks on this model.

Actually, looks like a 16V intake manifold. Cool that somebody built that kit, I was wondering if it was worthwhile. Nice job!
