    Thanks everyone!! Glad to be back on here and posting again, I forgot how motivating it was to share builds.

    Impreza Number 4, an experiment.
    This was an experiment for me, I wanted to try painting every part of the kit with an airbrush for the first time, and I wanted to finally have a try at Zero Paints.
    As you can see, the results compared to my older builds of the kit speak for themselves... I need to get a decent airbrush though, mine is horrible and made the painting of the body a real pain. 
    Box stock, no modifications to the kit. Colour is Zero Paints 555 Impreza Rally Blue.









    In the time it took me to build this kit, I bought, drove and sold a real Subaru. 
    Thanks for looking, all comments appreciated!

    Since I was last active, I've bought, driven and sold 3 different cars, thankfully the same girlfriend though...

    Built for my Dad for his 60th, only add to the kit was the licence plate, to match his old one. Kit went great with no real problems.

    Back after a Hiatus... Abarth 500.
    Well some of you may remember me, it's been a while since I've been on here, but within the past two weeks I've gotten back into modelling in a big way. This was the first project I got finished.
    Built box stock, painted a Ford blue, with some Gulf stickers and orange details. Only mods to the kit are a steering wheel and pedals. Fitment is awful on this kit as anyone will tell you, so I did the best I could. Licence plates were added after the photoshoot.

    Cheers lads, means a lot.
    My friend gave me a lend of his airbrush so when I get time I'll have a go at experimenting with that I reckon.

    Love it. I have two on the stock pile and have plans for two or three more. I plan on doing a big display eventually..

    Richard Burns' 2001 Impreza.
    Finished a while ago but never got pics. Box stock, l only added slight weathering. As a now Subaru owner, I guess I need to build loads of them...  Probably my last finished build of 2015.

    Only seeing these comments now, somehow.. Haven't been active on here in a long time!
    Thanks so much everyone! I've got a new model just finished, I'll get some pics when I get a chance.

    Thank you everyone!
    Here's more from the collection as asked.

    Nismo S-Tune + Skyline Collection.
    This is Tamiya's new "Nismo-Custom" kit. It's essentially their old R32 kit but with a couple of new parts - Strut brace, steering wheel, exhaust system and wheels. It also comes with a few body kit mods to make it a bit more like the Group-A racer. Usual Tamiya build quality, shake the box and it assembles itself.  
    Mods to the kit were decals from the Aoshima Z-Tune, and I opted to put in front seats from an R34. I build models to represent my "ideal garage" and if I had one I would probably stick R34 seats in for extra comfort. I plan to get two more of this kit and build the standard R32, and then the 1990 Nismo homologation model.
    Also shown are my current skyline models, and my 3 R32s - the blue one was the first model I ever finished and the middle one was built 2 years ago. It's nice to have a few of the same kit to be able to compare my abilities. 
    Thanks for looking, all comments are much appreciated

    Mk1 Golf GTI.
    Well I've been away from the bench for quite some time now, so I finally got back in the game.. This time, I wanted to push myself with engine detail. I always feel the engines let me down, so I wanted to push myself to do better. Armed with reference pics I got started. 
    No real modifications to the kit, this is Revell's newest Mk1 GTI Kit and it's a dream. All I did was add detail to the engine bay, and a decal to the rear window, and a mirror from a '65 Mustang. Detail to the engine bay consisted of wires and a water expansion tank, which for some reason Revell forgot, even though they left an indentation for one to be fitted... Odd.
    This was my first time trying out a new line of spray cans from my local store and they're not great but they do have some cool colours, unfortunately I had to weather the outside to cover the blemishes.
    Without further ado...
    All comments are much appreciated

    Thank you!
    Unfortunately not, the Mk1 kits do, but all Mk2 kits are LHD only.
