I have been busy with family stuff and it kept me from my build for several days. I was finally able to get back to it so here are some updates;

I got done with the car, as I feared the paint is not great and looks even worse after a night of racing but I will post pics anyway.

That's a very nice mashup of Vader's mask and Corvette styling. Thanks for sharing!

Get outta here! It looks incredible :thumbup: Your woodworking skills are top notch. My boy loves starwars and would kill for this car.

I don't see how the car's design could've been any better. Amazing job!

What can I say? Even looking at the car it's hard to believe. One side matches the other side perfectly. Great Job !!!!!!

INCREDIBLE! I am proud of you for racing it. I am afraid that I would not want to race it if I had spent that much time creating it. That is a work of art.
