Your Projects: Super Detailing a Matchbox Porsche 911 Safari

As intricate as modern small-scale miniature cars are nowadays, there are always ways to add more details and make them look even more realistic.

Who better to show us how to "super detail" a die-cast car than forum user Javelin, founder of the GRM Forum Model Contest—now six rounds deep.

The focus here may be on adding details to Safari-style Porsche 911 Matchbox Car, but we're willing to bet that that Javelin won't mind if you used a Hot Wheels instead.

You can even watch the process from start to finish over on Javelin's YoutTube channel:

Get the full scoop on how to super detail a Matchbox or Hot Wheels car over on Javelin's build thread in the Builds and Project Cars forum.
