Hi everyone!

Just signed up to the site, figured it'd be handy to. :)

I'm Tomo, I have a passion for cars and modelling. I'm not long turned 15, I'm from Armagh in Northern Ireland and I've been modelling for around a year, give or take a few months. I've learned a lot, but there's still so much for me to learn, so I'm hoping this site will help me get better with the help of you guys! I love muscle cars, Japanese cars, European cars, well, all cars really. I build whatever I see and takes my fancy. I

 

These are a few of my models, I'll post some now so you guys have an idea of what to expect.. it's really not much. I'll be asking for your opinions and help a lot so I can learn! Anyway. On to the models. I'll give a brief sentence about each one.

 

"Immy 2 & 3" - 1998/9 Subaru Impreza WRC/ This is the last model I finished in 2012 (the '99) beside her sister, which I finished earlier in the year. First time attempting snow weathering.

1988 Sauber Mercedes C9 - This was my first attempt at making seatbelts, doing wiring on an engine and bare metal foil. I didn't like the AEG livery this kit came with, I fancied the silver one but couldn't get my hands on one, so I did my own thing.

Toyota GT86 - I had decided that, since I'll never own one of these, and I'm quite fond of them, I'll do a model. I wasn't going to due to the price of the thing, but I bit the bullet and I'm glad I did. This is Tamiya's.

Fiat 500 "Ferrari Fan" - Decided to weather this slightly. The kit annoyed me, but it's not a bad kit.

'70 Plymouth Superbird - This was my first muscle car kit. I've always loved Superbirds, and I was really proud of this one.

These are just a few of my models, I look forward to being on here and seeing what you guys have to say and seeing all your lovely works!

Cheers!

- Tomo

Impressive! Really good photography too, with the rock wall; I thought the Toyota was real for a second!

Good looking body of work, and especially impressive after only a year in the hobby. You sir, have some talent. Welcome, and hope to see a lot more of what you can do. I like the Ferrari decal on the nose of the little Fiat too.

Céad míle fáilte...from one to another. Your work is impressive. I've been doing this for close to 40 years on & off and I'd be very happy with those results even now. Love the Superbird.
