    I can't view the pictures. :(

    Mind linking/attach them over to this thread? :D

    Yep, I've been interested in 1/24 plastic kits for sometime now. Bought 3 kits (all Tamiya) so far (2 got totalled after a fan blade hit them, completely destoryed), and I'm currently shopping around for a 4th one. I used to have some pictures of the cars, I'll try to dig em' up. :grumpy:

    automotiveforums, great site.

    Good luck with the modeling. I have spoken with Jordan and he isn't really keeping me up to date with it, but when the next forum update comes out, there will be an entire forum dedicated to modeling. Can't wait till then.

    I hope that forum isnt solely dedicated to cars - planes would be cool too. It is comes to pass.

    In Progress:

    Fujimi R33 and Hellar Xsara.

    I am a n00b at this, these are my first models. Im 13 years old and i cant paint for my life really; my hands are more wobbly than a 100 years olds legs.But i try hard to get clean detail on. But saying that i have made the R33 arches wider and i think they worked quite well to a good effect. The only problem is now the wheels are too swollowed up by the arches so im waitin for deep dishes off HLJ. Anyway heres some pics.

    And the Hellar Xsara it the WRC one but i wanted it to be a road car, its had one base coat of French blue but still needs more work.

    Can i have some feedback please on these, constructive critism is welcome. Also what colour do you think i should spray the R33?

    Those things are minute compared to my F50. You literally have to glue everything together. There's about 300 parts...300 really small parts. Grrrr.

    A modeling forum would be cool.
    I tried my hand at modeling a 1983 Camaro Z28, the construction is fine so far but i screwed up the paint job on the car royally, im gonna have to by a cheap airbrush kit from testors, its not really an airbrush kit it has propellent and you hold it like a spray can, and its only $15 bucks or so.

    My recent projects are an Intregra Type R and a Buick Gran National.

    Anyone know where I can get a Typhoon Model? I know they make them but I can't find one.

    Oh it will be dedicated to hobbies in general bud. You'll definitely have a plane section.
     
  16. Try www.hlj.com You'll have to sign up with them but they do a great selection of wheels and tyres for really low prices. They use pay pal by the way.
     
  17. I just recieved 3 loads of wheels today, a set of Racing Hart Type CR's, some Volk CE28's and some Volk TE37's. They all look really nice and the TE37's are wider than the standard ones that came with my R33 some im gonna use them for that.

    PICS come later when i get some batteries.

    I'm going out later today to check out some model kits. If things go as planned, I should get my hands on a Tamiya 1/24 Scale Mazda 787B. :D

    I hope they still have the kit though, it's been like 7 months since I last visited the mall. :grumpy:

    Edit : Bastige shop didn't have the 787B kit anymore. :grumpy: I didn't get any other kit though - they were way above my price range.

    I love putting models together but I absolutely hate painting them. Probably explains why my Star Wars X-Fighter model and my Warhammer models never got completed. :indiff:

    Dark green with a Kevlar hood, (off-yellow), and put some gold rims on it. It'd look phat! :D

    Finally - here's a picture of my Mazda efini RX7, it's a Tamiya kit. I had to resize the picture so it would fit in here, so excuse the quality.

    I build this one some 2 years ago, it was a birthday gift from my sister (:eek: )!

    Edit : Check out my uber-cool mousepad.

    This thread must live! :D

    A couple of days back I got this :

    [​IMG]

    I've yet to paint kits properly yet (they're a bit expensive), I only got paint for the body. :lol:
     
  28. Yeh it's been pretty much dead lately. I haven't really worked on my models for a while. The arches on the R33 are finished and the body is ready for its last primer coat. The interior is about 50% done. I also started on the chassis of a Tamiya '02 Impreza Rally but not much has gone on there. Oh well, I should start to progress more soon though.
