Yat Ming after Gavin posted pictures of his in comparison to the Exoto version Rich posted. Cheap models are just easier to modify and sometimes with a little TLC turn into gems. Then again, things never look the same in pictures. I should have taken my time with this, it could have been much better but I thought it was just filling a space. It looks good on the shelf still :). Some black and silver paint, a little gray on the floor to help hide the screw bosses and some decals (going to try a better set of decals) with a slight adjustment to the front ride height and some poor seat belts and it may not be a gem, but a diamond in the ruff.

@gavin Thanks Gavin, I did lower the front, maybe a little too much but wheels roll and turn. I have another set of decals coming and that should be a big improvement. Sorry it took so long to get back, work is really crazy right now.
