Lamborghini Diablo SV - Welly

When the Diablo SV by AUTOart was widely available, I let my chances of getting one passed by because I was focused on getting the Diablo VT first. Since 2 years ago, I finally decided to get the SV but unfortunately, prices had skyrocketed and the model had become rare as well. So my chance of owning one at a cheap price was the Welly version. Surprisingly, the actual model is decent. The casting inside and out is very similar to the UATOart version. Well, it just needs a few modifications and detailing.

Anyway, here are the things I did to improve this model:

-repainted the black spokes from black to silver
-Lowered front height
-Improved the interior by repainting to 2-tone color white & black (cockpit, seats, dash board, door sidings)
-installed carpet
-replaced the seatbelts and installed photo-etched seatbelt buckles
-improved the foot pedals and fabricated photo-etched style pedals
-minor engine detailing
-improved the rear fog lamp and reverse lamp
-repainted the rear plates
-repainted the rear lamp frame to flatter black
-repainted the muffler tip holes
-repainted the front boot compartment to flatter black


Now I'm totally satisfied with this model and she will be displayed along side with the rest of my raging bull collection. :)
