Hallo everybody!

Summertime is a bit model building unfriendly season for me as the weather is forcing me to do things like mountain biking, visiting music festivals etc.So I decided to share with you my very first model car build, the 55 Ford F-100 Street Rod (Monogram). I bought this kit to use the body for my 1/24 RC car, but when I opened the box, there was that smell and I was thrown 20 years back (I produced airplane glue bombs as a kid) and simply could not resist to finish it. I am very thanful for that as it meant a comeback to this beautiful hobby.

It was a first one, but I tried some techniques like wiring the engine (looks strange, the wires are hanging in the air), I flocked the seat and did some foiling (using very weird foil from the RC market). I didnĀ“t take care about the sink marks that time. I decided to leave everything as it is to remind me my first attempt on this field.

Thanks for your attention and as always, your comments are very welcome!
