Johnb43 added a topic in Under GlassFirst Model - Revell Mini Cooper (photo update)Hey guys,
My names John. I've been spending a lot of time on here for the past 2 months learning everything I can, but haven't posted until now.
I used to make models when i was younger, but would really just glue them together and never really paint anything. So i don't count them, plus, I was about 12.
A couple months ago, for whatever reason, I decided I would get into modeling. So I found this site, did some research, and decided to get the Revell mk1 Mini, as its a car I always wished I could have, even though I'm 6'4".
Heres a few pictures of the original layout of parts on my probably unconventional work desk haha. Its a little cramped but I prefer to be surrounded by cool stuff.

IMG_8444 by John Burdumy, on Flickr My idea with this car was to make something that I would actually own, rather than a pristine, restored car. The weathering was a bit of an experiment, but Im super happy with the outcome.
I've gotta thanks Dr. Cranky for all of his videos and posts. I learned a ton from him, as well as many other guys on here.
So heres some shots I took today as the sun went down. I'll get some engine and interior photos soon.
Thanks in advance for any c&c!
