Very nice! I had trouble seeing the page originally, but it is working now. I have attached a screenshot for safekeeping. If you have more that you have taken, please post 'em up!

The link on Rebrick will direct you to mocpages, which has all the pics and the info behind the model. I also have the pics posted on flickr. Links are below. I've also used the model as the basis for a white 1985 SVO, red 1993 Cobra, and a purple 1987 LX Notchback drag car (complete with a Harwood scoop, airfoil, parachute, and wheelie bars). The SVO already has pics up on Flickr, the others should be up by tonight.

I used LEGO Digital Designer to build it, so for now it only exists digitally. It would cost around $220 to build, at the current rate of roughly $.10/piece. The program does compile parts lists and create building instructions though, so it is possible to make this a real model.

Wow! Will it actually compile a list and put together instructions? If no one else is willing, I'll take a stab at it.... Let me know how I order it.

LEGO used to allow you to create custom sets with Digital Designer, then order them, complete with custom packaging. Unfortunately they put a stop to the practice 2 years ago. I can still create instructions and parts lists, but from there you have to source the parts yourself. LEGO offers the Pick-A-Brick service, and there are a few independant sellers online. The real trick is making sure all the pieces in the required colors are available (chrome gets tricky, but can sometimes be replaced with light gray). I can customize the model to specific departments, and I have been doing the later noses. Decals are up to the user.
