    I have taken quite a liking to the japanese kits lately. I browse way more than I buy though. This kit actually looks interesting to me, but kits like this make my wife roll her eyes What's your experience with Plaza Japan been like? Reliable?

    Eu sou estrangeiro, então meu português não é bom, não tenho mais modelos então eu tenho que fazer funcionar. I hope that made sense, in english, I don't have many kits, so I have to make it work. If I mess up on the body I will have to fix it, one way or another! Thanks for checking in.

    Thanks, I can't believe how long this takes me though. It's therapeutic in a way too, I owned a mini many many years back, fun cars to drive.

    I find it fascinating how you are crafting this, thanks so much for sharing.
  6. I started a new model a few nights back. The weather here is so cold and wet I don't have a chance to go outside and spray anything, so all I have done is a bit on the engine. Here's the box; Mocking it up a bit. I decided to dress it up a bit with some spark plug wires, I had hoped to do more details but these wires look so comically huge on the engine that I am considering just doing spark plug wires. Without the body to hide the engine, a lot of green... I had to make my own distributor cap, as I was trying to make holes in the kit part it slipped out of my hand and shot who knows where. It does not seem to show up in the photos though! Overall I am not too unhappy with what I have done, only the second engine I have done, so not too bad. The wire is from a network cable, with the 'boots' being the insulation around it, hence the blue colour. I am a bit swamped with freelance work now, but soon I will get the ignition coil painted and glued on, so that the last wire has a place to go. My first Tamiya kit too, I am impressed with the detail, instructions and how well everything is done! I told myself 'no more kits till you build all the cars!' so I am hoping for better weather to get some paint on the chassis and all the other places where a rattle can would look better than a brush. I have 2 started and 2 kits not started yet, so it may be a while before I get more at this pace... What a random assortment of sentences, comments welcome, I am not an experienced builder and am using what I have on hand, so it's never going to be life like

    I do have another copy of this kit, so maybe on that one. When i realised I had 2 of the same kit I decided that this one would be the one I 'test things on'. I have tried scribing the grill, but an not happy with how it is turning out. I may try create my own grill and print it out to see how good I can get it.
  11. The Striped Tomato Is Complete

    I enjoyed watching this show as a kid, so this kit is on my list to buy some day. Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.
  12. The Supersonic has landed.

    I am dabbling with 3d printing and model kit building together. I print at home with an FDM printer so it's not the best quality, still fun though Seeing the level of quality on your prints and the work you do blows my mind!

    Thanks, appreciate the compliment.
  14. 1950 Alfa Romeo Alfetta

    Thanks, I remember reading something like that a while back. It's great that the kit is still around, I also have the Talbot kit, which I think is an old Merit kit too.
  15. 1950 Alfa Romeo Alfetta

    I will let you know when I do it. Thanks for checking in.
