I'm getting married in September and have decided to make my own centerpieces. I am looking for Scion xB Plastic Car Models that are already put together or I have to put together, but I am having problems locating them. I will be painting them different colors and putting some other decorations on them and then the head table one will be lit up with battery operated lights.

They look similar to this, maybe a little bigger:


If someone can direct me to a local place or a website, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks!:)

Tammie,

Tamiya makes bB models in 1/25th scale. Fujimi makes a few also.

Check any local hobby shops near you. If you need some help, let me know.

They are plastic and need to be painted and glued together.

LOL!! That is a nice collection...I'm diggin' the Chub City ones I might switch to something like that. I will look around even more, I just can't decide if I want the ones already made or the ones I need to put together.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I will let you know what I plan to do and show the finished product when the time gets closer.

:D

It might just be easier and cheaper to go with die cast Tammie. They're much easier to find and you won't have to spend time building them. I'm assuming you're going to do more than 10, right?

Personalizing your wedding with something off the wall like that is pretty sweet. Our cake topper was made by my wife and featured Han Solo and Leia Organa. I couldn't talk her into making it with Lando Calrisian (I freakin' LOVE Billy Dee Williams!), but Han was passable.

Good luck!

Yeah, I'm thinking die cast and then adding some minor decorations to them and I want to say about 10. The head table I want to make it a little different then the rest. I'm also making a cake topper with the bride and groom and a motorcycle (I'm into Scions, fiance is into motorcycles). And then as part of the favors some temporary tattoos (since we both have them and love them) for the kids.
