Wow. That is some impressive work for an experienced modeler, let alone someone new to the hobby. Obi Wan has taught you well.

 

Now - how did you do the camo pattern on the truck?

Nice number of models, that would be one a month. I love the '50 Chevy pickup.  You had an excellent first year, congratulations and Happy New Year of Modeling for 2013. :)

Nice variety and quality!  I like the four door Skyline.

 

Getting a little brighter light set up will help us see them ;)

Thanks guys... sorry for the photo setup but it was a spur of the moment thing...Jantrix the camo effect was a accident i used a roll of medical grade plaster wrapping like the kind they set arms and legs..

l agree with all above ! I think the focus of your light could be up front a little more. Too much "back lighting" makes the cars too dark to see well. Nice output for the year, carry on !
