Post your builds that are smaller than 1/25 (I know there are some out there, I have pictures)

Vintage kit that is getting released again

the kit motor requires a little rework to make it look like a pontiac engine

Doors opened and hinged

door openings need a little rework, wheels/tires are snowflakes from a '79 TA snap kit, the kit honeycomb wheels looked very undersized to me.

Some 1/160th scale vehicles I built for my N Gauge train layout.

The PT Cruiser is a resin kit. All of the others are 3-D Printed Plastic kits.  All were hand painted.

Thanks for looking!

It's an amazing kit - the windows have their frames beautifully chromed which I've never seen elsewhere.
