swede70, thanks for that info on ghost models. have not ordered from them before. they do have some things I'm interested in. I understand it's a one man operation, and he travels a lot. hadn't heard back from them about an order.
am looking forward to the stuff that spark has in the trans-am range, for future release. I do build plastic kits, and 1/43. on the 1/43's I couldn't lay down paint & decals the way spark & others do !

Not an old race car but some incredible detail on a scratch built '69 Camaro model...

That is truly unbelievable artwork and craftsmanship..  I would be curious to know the man hours in this project..

*Unbelievable* is a good word for this...   
I'd think full time access to a 3D printer (working at scale) would be required..  otherwise, it makes my head hurt trying to think about how he did it..  :)
