This is very ture !





Cost factor's !




Price of kit

added extras such as


wheels
interior details
motor details
trunk detail


other items as in



Working suspesions
hinged hood
opening doors and trunk


then the cost of painting it !

full custom air brushed murals
custom patterns
just a plain candy
all factoey specs !




And the hardest vaule to add to any build would be PERSONAL time !

I was thinking of this myself. But I have not found a kit of my car. I have a 1991 cadillac sedan deville. I think i might pay a pretty penny for a kit of that...

But a replica may be too hard to do because of the paint. I have a lot of fades, flake and color shifting flake.

each person will charge a different price. It's like asking an artist how much he'll charge to do your portrait. Each one is gonna place a different pricetag on their skills and time.

anything custom made is gonna be more expensive then something already built. just like with anything else

lol. I would imagine it would be very difficult to make a model like that. I saw the fleetwood and that was pretty cool! I give you guys credit. I would get very frustrated working with all those little parts.
