  1. Thanks everyone for your support! It would be tough to build the models with my kids at the moment. They literally fight about everything, so it would be difficult to evenly split a model build. In a few years, I think they will behave more logically HAHAHA. I'm spending most of my time with them making sure they did their school work, so even free time with the kids is limited. Well, enough with whining.... Life is good! My collection is at least 150 kits, so i could loose a few of the "in production" kits at least. literally will not build all these kits in a lifetime. I averaged one a month, even when I was 100% dedicated to the hobby. I suppose I get a little obsessive LOL
  2. Red green! Oh boy that takes me back. I grew up in Toronto before moving to California. cheers
  3. Thanks for all the kind words! Yeah it’s nearly impossible to work and provide them child care (5 and 7) simultaneously, so I have been catching up on work when they go to sleep in the evening. That’s my usual modeling time. I’m certain there are some of you who have experienced similar situations in the past. Everything in life is temporary, and this is no exception. I’m mostly selling my 1/12 scale for the space, and the 1/24 scale that are not too far out of production. Il be keeping my rare gems (all Tamiya) since they seem to be gaining in value anyways.
  4. Hi guys! so I’m reluctantly going to stop building models for now :( I have young children and am very luck to still be employed. With them no longer being in school, I have to split my days and weekends between work and helping them with their school assignments. It’s just impractical to work on models at this time. Even my main hobby working on my 71’ 240z (1:1) is going to suffer (@240z_restomod on IG). I have some models up on eBay, and will likely post more. thanks for all your help over the years, and Hopefully I will see you all when this is over!
  5. Great job! I believe this kit is becoming somewhat rare now. Absolutely amazing detail work.
  6. Nice! I use an Iphone as well. It takes surprisingly good close-ups.
  7. The slambo looks great! i enjoyed the zoomed in photos. Iphone? I find many modelers avoid the close-ups but i think they show confidence in once work and attention to detail.
  8. looks phenomenal! I love modern GT race cars as 1/24 models.
  9. Looks fantastic!! great work on the color finish. I like a little darker panel lines, but that is just personal preference.
  10. I like it, and I think my kids would love it! Very creative.
  11. Great color choice! So many vivid lines
  12. Thanks for the kind words everyone! If you have the kit, I would still recommend building it! The challenge is very rewarding! The fit is superb so when you do get all the paint right, it can all go together in a day or two. I would love to see others tackle the Takata and raybrig liveries as well! I am going to take a break for a while but I may do so in a few months.
  13. I’m finally done! This was the most difficult kit I have ever built. I purchased the Tamiya PE set along with the kit. Tons of amazing details, and the kit went together like a dream. The difficulty on the two-tone paint, decals and masking was something I struggled with for two months. I destroyed one body on account of a failed primer adhesion, and repainted countless times to get it right. Had to get a whole new kit to replace parts and decals that had failed along the way. My kids recently have becomes obsessed with the “slug bug” VW beetle, so that will be next hope you enjoy! Have not seen anyone else do this kit or it’s sisters on the forum.
  14. I feel you! I have been working on a bear as well. You will get on the other side of this! I finally got my clear coat on and looking at the other side of it. Here is my pain if you want to share paint-destruction experiences. Had to buy a whole additional kit just to make up for my mistakes.
