if you stand far enough away this car is beautiful. up close there's lot of paint bleed in body lines. several i looked at had paint runs down either side.

There is of course the "Stella" Art Car to come later this year/early next year. I think it is listed as being down on the December schedule.

Being a Graphic designer and photographer I was thrilled to see that these cars would be produced. Then I got a look at the price... Man that stopped me cold!

Now I hear that the finish quality leaves a bit to be desired. Good. Now I won't feel so bad because they are beyond my budget.

For what they are asking us to spend, these cars should be perfect. For a mass produced (even though these are "special editions" they are mass produced) item.

They should spend the time to make these special editions "special" rather than just a funky poorly executed "limited edition" paint job.

Hi all,
Whatever the pros and cons of the Fly models with their high prices and imperfect execution, the original cars look fantastic.
Thanks for the link to the BMW site.
Airbrushing isn't too complicated btw, it's just the masking that's a pain in the butt. Oh yeah - and the cleaning afterwards.
I'm inspired!

I love the BMW 3.5 CSL Art Car on the BMW website that is decorated in the white and black livery. I think the BMW 1990's Art cars would look great if they had a large spoiler because they look too much like basic saloon cars with a superb livery.
