    Thanks a lot for the kind compliments guys, I'm glad many liked it.  I'm really digging the yellow on the impala as well, I keep glancing every now and then in its display case.

    Amt 1964 impala lowrider
    Well here is my rendition of a 64 impala lowrider by Amt. it is a simple kit from decades back, but looks much more realistic to me than the revells 64 Impala. I've only added engine wiring, and Pegasus lowrider rims. The paint is by createx, I will wax the body a little more to get more gloss out of the paint. As all of my builds, I like to build clean paint jobs. If I owned a lowrider it would have a clean custom paint job without any crazy designs or murals ( no disrespect for those who like that sort of stuff). Let me know what you guys think, and yes I didn't paint the impala emblems or bmf as I am not that advanced yet .

    1/35 scale Tamiya m41 tank U.S. wheel tracks
    hello, I figured this might be a long shot given this is a model cars forum. However, I recently purchased a tamiya m41 tank that is missing the wheel tracks . I'm not sure if they are rubber like. If anyone would like to trade , please let me know , I would greatly appreciate it.

  10. ERIK88 added a post in a topic How many people fully detail a model?   

    Thanks a lot for sharing your thoughts guys. I really appreciate, and respect the detail work some of you guys do on here. Every time I look at a extremely detailed build I think of all the frustration, research, and patience it took to get a model too look that way. Maybe it isn't something that is a hair pulling , nail biting, table thumping, eyeball popping task for those that do advanced detailing. As I mentioned earlier, I think I'm just going to keep building at a enjoyable level, and not make it a job or chore.  The engine posted on here looks awesome! Wow!!!

    How many people fully detail a model?
    I was wondering how often model kits get super detailed by a builder. I quite often find that many people on this forum are ocd with their build subjects. It only makes sense that model builders would be obsessed over achieving near perfection, however I find that what is most important to me is a nice clean build free of mold lines, or flash, clean glue and paint. At most  I will wire an engine, and carpet the interior. In my opinion detailing beyond that will probably make this hobby not as enjoyable, and will drive me crazy referencing pictures , manuals, etc.

    I really like the paint on this one. I have about 5 of these, I have to say this is my favorite year of Impala, it's got some nice smooth lines . I like the 70s  old school lowrider look it's got going on. 
  14. ERIK88 added a post in a topic Whats your work area like?   

    This is my current work area, I paint in another room however. My kits are stashed in the attic, there's  way more kits behind those. These are my most recent acquisitions.
