    You are too kind, Ngauger.:oops:

    They don't call me logicman for nothing - I love the logic of language.

    I can do linguistics, me.

    I think we should all agree to not remember that film.

    Hi guys! Does anyone know where I can find a model of the Lamborghini Countach? I've found one but it's too small! 4 inches or so. Thanks a lot!

    You probably want to ask about that in a new thread since it doesnt have much to do with specific movie and tv cars, but I think the one you found is probably the 1:30 model - pretty simple.

    I couldn't find another larger version of the Countach, but there is a nice 1:18 and 1:14 model of the Murcielago. All the Lambo's I know of are linked here:

    Hi GMAGS! Yes, I've just realized I should have been clearer about what I wanted. What I really want is a bigger model of the Lamborghini Countach that appeared in the TV series Automan. Unfortunately as U just said there is none available, only the 1:30 scale. Thanks anyway!

    I just found the Autocar last night and downloaded it. I'll find the link when I get home from work in about an hour and post it.

    This model is the one I was telling you about; too small for my taste and not so detailed either. Nevertheless I've already finished it :eek:) Thanks for the tip anyway!

    Hi again! Believe it or not the guy who designed the Autocar used the templates of the person from the links you just posted. The Lambos are the same; they're all small! Pretty funny right? The only Lambos Countach LP 400 on the net, as far as I know, are from the same guy. And the Autocar was designed using those templates! Thanks for you patience and for your time man! If U know anything else, let me know please!

    I remember downloading a larger Lambo that was 1/24th scale but I can't place where it was that I found it. I may have been surfing some of the Japanese sites when I found it. I was looking for one to recolor into an Automan car, but never had the time to get around to it. If I can find the site I'll post it. I wish we could get this thread started again. There are a lot of Movie and TV cars that I'd like to see as paper models. The A-Team van and Knight Rider's KITT are available but are NOT very detailed.

    My favorites are Cláudio Dias cars at:
    http://paperinside.com/delorean/

    Doc Brown's Delorean Time Machine and Time Traveling Train
    The 1966 Batmobile
    The Tumbler Batmobile
    The Munster Coach
    Speed Racer Mach 5
    Ghostbusters Ecto One
    Mad Max Interceptor

    and

    The 2 versions of the Bumblebee Camaro from Transformers the Movie
    designed by Skip

    Hi clif52! It'll be great if you can get the site or even better if you can modify it to make the autocar!!

    One car that hasn't been mentioned yet is the hover car from "Logan's Run" remember that? It was one of the first models I made from scratch when I was a kid.

    Hope I can weigh in...

    A Dragula would be very cool..

    A 71-73 Mustang Fastback could yield the original Eleanor (only real one if I may say so) which has been pictured and the red fastback from "Diamonds Are Forever".

    How about the First Gen Monte Carlo from "FnF-Tokyo Drift"? The auto wranglers for that movie felt it was one of the most viscious cars they had ever had in a movie...

    or the '55 Chevy that was in "Two Lane Blacktop" and, when repainted, was in "American Grafitti"?

    And a huge thank you to Claudio for the Interceptor, one of my all time faves!

    Best,
    Tom

    One more suggestion -

    How about a detailed version of Professor Fates Hannibal Twin 8 car from "The Great Race"? And the sub, and the blimp bike!

    Thanks!
