Recommended Posts

My 3rd Build was going to be easy. i thought .... but it just seamed like it was fighting me especially the paint .had to redo much of it . and i did not end up where i had originally pictured it . it definately dident turn out to be a showcar (maybe a contender for a Complete restauration in the future. but never the less i got it done . this Corona has a custom interior with a rollcage. custom front and rear spoiler. and a mesh in the grill. the wheels are optional Mpc.s . im imaginating the car to be a Jdm/drift guy,s plaything / everyday driver . ´this build really pushed me to the point of allmost giving up when it just keept getting worse . but glad i dident even if its not perfect and the clear turned flat in some places.  maybe its just a car on its way to becomming a so called Drift Missile car . im glad i had the struggle it just gives experience for next time . so here it is .

this was the kit it was a old Otaki kit ..one of those motorized kits

Don't beat yourself up over this build.  It turned out great. Like you said, it's not perfect but it was a great learning experience. One of the other members here has a great tag on his posts.

Where did you find this kit?  Is it 1/24-1/25 scale, or one of the odd scales the Japanese seem to love?
