Mario Desrosiers is modifying from a 1/25 scale model kit, a Bonnie & Clyde "death car". He has modified a two door to a four door to make it a "Fordor" model. He has also scratch built a rear trunk, the interior, the broken glass and most of all Bonnie & Clyde in the same position in which they were killed. He is entering a model contest in August and is hoping to finish his "DeathCar" project by then.
The contest is over, and as expected, Mario did well! CONGRATULATIONS
