Keep on gluing up these kits young man . At your age my brothers were helping me at home, or should I say building my kits with me watching them . They did not want me making a mistake. Good job so far on your progress .

Thanks Guys. It really means alot. I know I have alot of post because I love building. I honestly don't care what people say, people could say my builds stink, people say meaner things at school. It never really bothers me until they bring my family in. I will get some more pictures when I can.

Okay, so now constructive criticism has been relabeled a hard time.I wonder how many "kids" in prison now at the ripe old age of what, say 21- 25 for murder,rape or robbery would give if someone would have given them a hard time at 12?

Ok here's my advice, relax, take your time, have PATIENCE. If you want to get better, start with baby steps.

READ the instructions, don't just look at the pretty pictures, LOOK at them.

Take the part and compare it with the diagram. Test fit the part to the other parts. Don't just go off and start gluing things together.

TAKE YOUR TIME, this really isn't a race. When you look at all the really good builds here on the forum remember, they took time to get right. The builders took their time to learn and develop their skills. While it's fun to see the finished car, how can you get better?

Build for yourself. That seems like a contridiction, but think about it. You can build any kind of car you want, just take your time and think it through.

ASK FOR ADVICE. We all get stuck sometimes. What I don't know somebody else will. When I screw something up somebody else has done it already and can offer advice on how to fix it.

That is one helluva good start. Keep building. The more kits you build the More honed your skills will become. Don't get down on yourself. I know when I was your age, I would start a kit, do the first couple of steps, get mad and it went airborn. You're doing great buddy.

The wheel backs are the Cragar wheel backs and the wheels are something else.

What I do/would do is google for pictures of the subject I am/was working on. When I was your age, I didn't have internet access to look for information. Here's an example; www.camaro-untoldsecrets.com/articles/crossram.htm

Nice work so far. I would say to put the vents in either just in front of the rear wheels, behind the front wheels or on the hood.
