DECO-DENT, LFA-Powered Auburn Speedster Hardtop
Posted by FrozenPlastik49 on Thursday, July 11, 2019 8:06 PM

Time for a new build! Always liked the lines of the Auburn and thought it would look even better as a hardtop. As you can see, the hardtop will be integrated into the boattail. Windshield and partial roof courtesy of Testors' Aluma Coupe. Engine, suspension, undercarriage, interior, rear exhaust, and front chin spoiler come from Tamiya's Lexus LFA. Color to be determined, but leaning towards copper, grey, or silver with black rims and black trim. Wish me luck!
