Model Car Hoax Kit   (+10)  [vote for, against]
"Since when did they make a model kit of a Yugo?"

Kit contains 25x coin, car keys, and paintbrush. Place next to real car and photograph. Fool 'em into thinking you are a master model maker! Coming soon: life-size plastic driver.

Wow, [wombat], you painted the rust and dirt right on that model! Is that Barbie inside? Why does she look so mad?

Because of the highly detailed Parking Boot on the front wheel.

One of the fresher proposals I've heard in quite a while. Advice for photo: use a large format combination with a narrow focal field, to make the photo look as if shot macro.

I'd rather have an enormous novelty ruler for this purpose, but + anyhow.

If they want to see the model, you can just tell them you blew it up with firecrackers.

Use the kit to photograph all sorts of oddities. Model homes, miniature ducks, tiny people...

One very enthusistic positive.

Not just because I have sympathetic leanings to that much abused cultural icon which is the Yugo (the best example of you get what you pay for I've ever encountered), but also it holds to one of my long held maxims "novelty size the prop novelty size the fun"

(On a similar topic I reccomend the novelty sized (750ml) beer cans as well, after a few you begin to feel like you actual have shrunken)

Fun idea, bun

Excellent - this reminds me of Andy Clifford's aerial photos of Bristol which were made with a tilt/shift lens to make them look like models (see link).
