Hey guys, over the last few months I bought a house, and while moving, and painting, and working 2 jobs, I decided to give a few of my built kits a slight refreshing, since I didn't have much time for any heavy model building
...
the first is my Tamiya r34...originally built with no top piece to the spoiler, and painfully factory brochure(read stock) looking.....

Here it is now as an owner would personalize it with Z-tune wheels, z-tune exhaust tip, and some number plates/registrations stickers(and a Nismo and Option decal for good measure). I also added the top piece to the trunk spoiler and used Tamiyas Carbon decal from the Z-tune parts pack decal sheet. Not much else was done...I needed to fix the front suspension from where it came unglued, and I changed both dash decals on the inside. Here it is....

Then we have my fujimi s13 silvia which was built up super slammed for daily driving...I was never happy with the Oni wheel choice(they go better on an ae86) so I took it apart and put on some r33 skyline wheels(from an old built up thats in the process of refinishing) I tried to give the front some camber since on the real thing you have to do that to fit those massive wheels(even with a mild pull). I also tried to "titanium-ize" the exhaust with some sharpie on the tip...lol. Another thing i'm into the LM racer look with yellow headlights so the trusty yellow sharpie came out and walla..a new look..

here is the old..

cool! you completely changed the character of those cars. i like them more now, more aggressive stances and overall look.

i need to update or repair some older builds too, one of these days!
