    First one I've finished in a while. It turned out better than I thought it would. Fujimi kit, Tamiya light blue paint. Overall a fun and easy kit, thanks for looking!

    2007 Charger Super Bee
    I saw this car on ebay for a great price and decided to grab it. I'd never seen a kit of a newer charger before and I thought it would pair nicely with my '09 Challenger SRT8 I made a while ago. It's a great kit and went together nicely. The only part I had trouble with was the windshield; It fits the opening perfectly, but is not curved enough so I had to hold it down for an hour while the super glue cured . Also, the decals lost some of their glossiness and cracked a bit. Oh well, I think it came out looking good. Enjoy and thanks for looking!

    I remember having fitment issues with the scoop as well. I love the color, looks fantastic!

    The cooling fan sucks air from under the front air deflector and blows it across the radiator. Not the most efficient system since the air is already hot, but they did this to keep the car short and for the fan to remain on the accessory drive belt.

    Finally finished this one up after about 8 months of it sitting around half finished. 
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Acura Integra Type R
    Finished this one last night. Great kit, love all the customization options. One mistake I noticed about it was the type R badges for the rear quarter panels. One badge of the two, in each of the three color options, is missing the I in Integra! Anyway, enjoy!

    It's Tamiya pure white to be exact. Thanks!

    Thanks Bill! Those decals took a lot of Micro-Sol and a lot of patience.

    Thanks, I thought since the throttle cables and PCV hoses were so accessible, why not give them a try! Yeah, it is a little high now that I look at it. I think that may be a combination of it sitting half completed for a few months on the shelf and the wheels being slightly too small, I compared it to a 1/18 RT/10 I have. Oh well, it looks good from a distance.

    That looks beautiful! All your custom work looks as if the kit came from the factory that way, nice work!

    Hi everyone, I've been in the hobby for about 10 years. I've always been obsessed with cars no matter the make or style. I used to build models in my free time through middle school and high school, but they didn't turn out very good. I took a break when I started college simply because I had no time for it. A couple years ago I picked it up again and have been going strong ever since. As I said before, I have no preference in the models I build. I have muscle cars, JDM imports, trucks, Italian supercars and even a Prius! I've been a frequent visitor to this forum and decided it was time to take the plunge and become a member. I look forward to building models for many years to come and I also look forward to making new friends who also enjoy the hobby!

    Acura Integra Type R
    I built one of these in high school and lets just say I wasn't as patient or skilled back then as I am now! I saw this one at the hobby store and decided I should give it another try. To my surprise, it looks like the kit was updated with a few better-tooled parts and more decals, mostly sponsors. I'm planning on making this one clean, not super flashy; gloss white with a few sponsor decals and gloss black wheels. Hopefully this one comes out better than the last one!
    A few pics of the engine, chassis and interior.

    I glued the front and rear bumpers onto the body and gave it a coat of primer. A little sanding, a couple more coats and it'll be ready for color.
