      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    It's certainly different but very cool. Especially that engine sets it apart.

    Thanks for the comments. Seatbelts are made using photoetched parts and some "seatbelt" material cutted to 2mm width. I don't exactly know what that material is, but it has pattern close to seatbelts.
    Here's better picture of the belts. Also forget to mention that I modified the seats a bit, to have better side support.

    Tricked out Honda S600
    I wanted to build this Honda S600 as a track oriented street car. I was thinking about changing engine to wankel engine or turbocharging the kits own engine. Even when I cut the wheel wells, it didn't have enough room for turbo. Then I found a picture of these twin stack intakes, I decided to build those. Also remembered that I have this metal bike exhaust silencer from Fujimi, that would fit nicely to this little bikeish engine car. Other mods for this car was changing the wheels and tyres to 15" ATS Classics from USCP. They might poke out little too much. I lowered the suspension alot, although rear seems to be a little too high. Interior got some belts and a roll hoop. Paint is Zero Aquamarine blue.

    Here is the shackles. They could almost be used as exhaust manifold flanges too.

    Both cars have detachable hoods. Red one is built without engine and i glued it to have raised from rear. White's hood isn't just placed properly. But they are little tight to put in place.

    Nice Hasegawa kit. Added front bumper from old Airfix Cavalier, wheel arches and side skirts from Fujimi set and Tamiya rear wing. Seats are changed. Wheels are resin TE37V's. Also added side exhaust.

    Ford Fairlane with lifted rear
    This AMT kit started when I found these jewel things, that looked very much leafspring shackles. So this car was deemed to have its rear end lifted way up. That of course meant finding some big rear tyres. They are Fujimis with widened steels rims. Front wheels are some lowrider tyres. Otherwise pretty much "stock" build.

    If you can, order some tire black color. Many manufactures offer them. Also you could mix something up. Anybody has an idea how to mix tyre color?

    Very nice project you have there. What is that tubing for cooling interior?
