Using a big diecast car (1:18 scale) as a tank decoration?

I did extensive searching and found only 1 instance of someone saying they used a matchbox car to decorate their kid's first fish tank... I'm wondering if a larger diecast car could be safely used? I know copper is the worst metal so it should be OK, and rubber is rubber... Any ideas?

Thanks.

I would be a bit worried about the paint deteriorating and flaking off after a period of time, since they were not made to be water resistent.

Perhaps if you coated it COMPLETELY in aquarium safe silicone. I don't see why it wouldn't be safe if you did that. It's completely clear and you can just put on a very thin coat.
