After many years of doing other hobby projects, i have decided to get back into the model cars again.
i'm building it just as the kit (no aftermarket parts or kitbashing) to ease my way back in. lol.
Here is the Chassis thus far...

Very convincing! The only thing I would be the tires.They look like new tires that are just weathered and not worn to match the weathering. Nice work so far :D

Outstanding. You have taken a great kit and really made it stand out through your weathering. That's what modeling is all about.

Extraordinary! Your detail painting on the door trim is remarkable, and the weathering really tells a story. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
