Kim Kardashian is set to be immortalised as a waxwork model.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star is to get her own statue at world famous museum Madame Tussauds, in New York.

Kim - who has been dropping hints on her website, even posting a mysterious picture of her bottom being measured - revealed: "I've been keeping you guys in the dark about my big announcement and teasing you with my #karwax tweets. but I can finally reveal that I am getting my own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in NYC!!!! (sic)"

The 28-year-old beauty, who is based in Beverly Hills, is very excited about her wax model and especially the fact it will be located at the New York branch of Madame Tussauds - which has attractions all over the world, including London and Shanghai.

Kim - who is famous for her shapely rear - said "This is one of the greatest honors ever and I am so thrilled and excited. Now I will never have to leave NYC. I've officially gone bi-coastal! LOL (sic)"

The completed model will reportedly see 'Kim' positioned in a red carpet hand-on-hip pose and wearing a tight Herve Leger dress and peep toe heels. 

Kim joins a host of famous faces at Madame Tussauds including Robert Pattinson, Michelle Obama and Jennifer Lopez.
