Hi everyone! Some of you requested to see pictures of the models I have built in my first year of modeling. Here are a few of them.

This is the first kit I have built, painted and weathered. It was very easy to build but I repainted it a second time because I was not happy with the result and also because I was learning new techniques I wanted to try. Before repainting it, I tried to make some of the wood planks uneven with the others to make it look older.

With this project, I tried to improve my weathering techniques and produce an old and rusty propane tanks business. I hope this company is closed because of the hazard risk ;)

This is a part of a mine from Walthers company. I was trying to (again) create a rusty building. I don't know why but I love rust.

This is my first kitbash project and the one I am actually working on. I have mixed one Walthers kit with one Woodland Scenics kit and I am adding lots of details (loading dock, chimney, roof details, climbing vine on a wall ... It's not finished yet but it will give you a good idea.

I can definitely see drastic amounts of technique refinement here.
I like your rust effects a lot!

Thanks. I take my time with each built and after a few months, I often take my old built and try to improve my painting and weathering. I also watch photos of rusty buildings, the color of the rust, where does it begin ...

Thanks. I spend way more time painting and weathering than building those structures but I like that.
Yes! I think that's what has changed my builds from Gundam to Cars. I like Gundams, I like painting them, but the kits with the detail I like have WAY too many tiny pieces for me to break or lose
