Stu, you know what a full stop... Is?? A sentence, when completed use's one, like this. How about some correct grammar? Spelling? Instead of these abbreviations you're using? I don't know how old you are mate or what level of education you've had but if you know how to use a computer then you know what a spell-checker is, right? You obviously have some really good modeling skills & to me, ( and it's just my opinion ok?), it's a bit of a let down to take short-cuts with using, or at least attempting, the English language, when you've made great effort in your model building....
Anyway it's a great find & good luck with it :-)
Cheers, Cliffo.

hey mate i am really sorry for the bad grammar . i didn't get much of an education i left school in the first 2 months of what you guys in the states call high school . and prior to that i wasn't at school much as i was always out in ice skating compitions . so i really didn't learn much but i get along with out having to write hardly at all . sorry again i will try to write better for ya .
but thanks for the compliment on me having some good modeling skills this will only be 6th model i have made and my first trying to open the doors and stuff . so i hope i am doing things right lol

This is just my way of doing things, but I would have totally stripped that body of paint before I attempted to cut the doors open. This saves a lot of trouble and grief when you repaint later, also there's going to be a LOT of body work (putty, filling scratches, etc...) to be done while doing this.

Just a suggestion as you've mentioned you're new..........ambitious start BTW........good luck! ;)

You've put a lot of work into the body and it's already showing. Take your vitamins and keep it going.

Great job with it... But actually what car is that? Somekind of Japanese, maybe Nissan? Great job with those body modifications, it'll be very interesting build, even if European or Japanese cars usually aren't so interesting.
