Got that in the stash. Nice kit, and very nice work!

Great job on the engine

I love the contrast between it and the smooth shiny car body.

In a weird way, having to work so clean on car bodies and yet make them not look like toys is more challenging then just slapping on some paint and weathering

it's one thing I've always wanted to try since I have gotten back into modelling. I failed horribly on cars I built as a kid

Thanks
Mine usually end up weathered , whether I want them to, or not...
I think chipping on tank armour (Sci- Fi) would be more difficult..
Got a bit more done on this one

Diorama ideas are swirlin'Happy Merry Ho Ho Folks

Definitely making this work.

Calling this one done,just need to scratch up a display





This was a Fujimi Enthusiasts Model, alot of very fiddley bits under the body, which I decided to leave out, since they wouldn't be seen and in some cases made it impossible to get a clean build out of this kit,...
Anyway I'm happy having a iconic ride in my collection.

It means there were a bunch of detailed parts cast, too thin, and not involved in the build,...
but saved for a sci fi build needing detail greeblies,...
