      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    one area in the engine bay that was really quite bad was the air box

    I cut most of it away and rebuilt the bottom, added throttles, fuel line, air piping and the clips. I still have to add a few more to it.

    The interior was flocked and the door panels was slightly detailed.

    Esci BMW M1
    Hey guys. i decided while I wait on parts ( waiting for my mini coopers lights but our postage system has been crazy for 3 months ) I would start his new build.
    My plans for this kit were to detail it up a bit as it wasn't that great and to drop it low with some bbs wheels. I know its unorthodox to do it to a car like this but the car just shouted it. Although the body is actually wrong as it has the race arches they will be kept as is.

    Excuse the quality of the photos

    the plan

    first problem was the fitment of the body. firstly the nose sits too close to the front bumper so it was sanded back like the real car.

    the engine block was ok considering this is an old kit but needed some details.

    The 5 bar wheel ( adv) was made specially for my nsx lol. I didnt intend on selling but if the demand is big enough I could do a limited run.
