Hi again!

This is my newest build, an e21 bimmer, built from a 1979 Revell kit.

The kit itself is quite nice, apart from some minor fitting problems and those horrible USA model bumpers.
I've never been a huge BMW fan, but some of these older ones look quite good. Especially the older 6-series e24:s are beautiful. And I think that this e21 with its Turbocharger, BBS rims, spoilers and Fender flares is an excellent icon of its own age.

I really love the older BMW's, I have quite a few freinds racing e30's and they are awesome little track cars. You did a great job on the e21, but the other one has me very interested.

Thanks steven!

I'm not quite sure what I will do with the other e21, but it will surely be a challenge, 'cause there are a lot of parts missing.

Nice BMW! The paint, wheels, tires and the overall clean look are great. I like the clean engine bay, too. Maybe a stupid question, but what's the difference between these American bumbers, and "Normal" bumbers? :huh:

Oh yes, now I see the difference, the American is "bit" more massive.... :lol:

Actually it looks better in model than in that picture, you posted.
