Hello, The names Joe.heading into the old fart catagory its been decades since i have build a modle car. I have been collecting and restoring old die cast, mostly matchbox .corgis and toostie toys. I decided i needed a bit of a challange and expand my skill base. I joined the forum about a month ago and have been lurking almost daily. reading every post and watching every tutorial posted. all i can say is WOW!!! i am absolutely blown away at the skill and craftmanships i see here. some of the work is just amazing. how the heck do you do it? i've spent the last 4 weeks completing a Revell 57 Bel Air,and to be quiet honest i think it looks like rainman put it together.the best part of the build was the interior and you can't see it!! can't tell you how many mistakes i made the parts i repainted. the parts i lost.from bubbles in the paint.windows falling out. glue on the window.glue smear on the finish paint. and how the heck do you attach the little parts without having them either stuck to your fingers or tweezers!!! AAAAAHHHHH!! the sideview mirror fell off twice and you now have to hang out the car window to see it...anyways here it is in all its imperfect glory....I WILL GET BETTER.
