Hey everyone,

 

Just came out of a 13 year modeling dark age with the 1:24 Tamiya Subaru BRZ.  (My wife and I can thank the recent purchase of a real one to be the final impetus.)

 

I was a member of the Young Model Builders Club back in the 80s and 90s, so I have those old models around somewhere.  But that was back when I was an impatient kid and so a lot of those weren't very good quality and didn't last long.  I also didn't store them very well, so some got destroyed in all the moves since then (college, work, college again, work again).

 

Anyway, look for an impending thread about my BRZ build.  I would love some feedback - since it's my first one since a long time, I think I'm a bit rusty and could use some pointers.

 

After this I may resurrect the Enterprise D from the 90s (probably my favorite model ever - and it didn't last).

 

Word.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

 

Here is a link to my BRZ build - feel free to give me pointers and etc.  I know it's a long post with lots of pictures, but I hope it's worth the read.
