    Is that a Datsun 720 frame?

    Tasty. Well done. Color looks great with those graphics.

    I see untapped potential. The wheels are nice, but that exhaust looked like a pvc pipe.

    Fujimi MkII Toyota Supra
    This is Fujimi's Supra from the Togue series. Its a curbside, and it has the worst chassis I've ever seen on a curbside. It looks worse than most toys, so I didn't even take a picture of it. 
    This kit was issued in a few different forms, and you get a lot of optional extra pieces, such as mirrors, steering wheel, sunroofs, Recaro seats, roll cage and the option of lights up or down. 
    I put the cage in, but removed it. It's positioned too far forward, and you cant fix it without removing the rear seats and fabbing the whole rear of the interior without the seats. 
    The instructions don't tell you how to lower the car, but the parts are there. (similar to the late 80's AMT kits where you swapped sides with the struts, or shimmed them.) I had to clearance the inner fenders, though.
    This is also my first go at using aluminum tube for the exhaust. the kit came with aluminum exhaust tips, but it was rolled tube with a seam, and you had to cut them, and they looked kinda crappy.

    Looks like fun. The Camaro grille kinda ruins the flow .
    Jealous of all your resin goodies!

    This is going to be cool. 
    It's genius the way Aoshima designed their two-piece wheels. I wonder why no one else does it this way. 
    I've ordered from Tokyo-Hobby as well. Their prices and shipping are pretty reasonable. I don't remember it taking too long, considering its postal service from the other side of the world.

    Shame about the Coyote.

    Excellent work. Very life-like.

    Awesome work, and nice diorama!

    Looks great. The passenger door mirror was always an option on small cars. Not sure when it became standard, but I have a '96 Tercel and it only has the driver's side mirror.

    I'd heard it in the Ramones movie, "Rock and Roll High School", and then Motley Crue did a cover a few years later. I was a kid at the time

    I was just coming here for that:
     
    Joan Jett had a hit with this:
     
    Madness owes their sound and name to Prince Buster:
     
     
    Here's a song made famous by Motley Crue:

    Even if it was rare, condition (build by a blindfolded 5-year old, etc.) is key.
