And think I will do a wrek next time
But I think best I finished the 3 I started on now first

That's right, JV, it's good to try these effects/techniques.

I've been building up to 5 kits at a time, but I'm thinking that this way you end up not doing justice to any of them! For 2022 I'm going to focus on one at a time - so far it seems that the details are receiving more attention, we'll see how it goes after a few more builds.

That's a great collection of cars & trucks in your stash, not so many in mine but there is one particular vehicle I would love to have - 73' Pontiac Grand Am 2-dr Colonnade HT in 1/25 scale. I had one from new & drove 20,000km across the US then shipped it back to NZ, have the Lindberg 1/32 kit of the 74' model but it has different grille & taillights 😒

Yes Richard
Always most interesting to have a model of a car you had
Mine is mostly of cars I like
I started collecting kits after giving one as a gift to someone else
The following week I vent and got 6 kits for myself
That was September last year
Now got kit 56 last weekend
Last year I was working 65 hr weeks
Had no time to do anything
This year I hope to make a change and work less
I hope to jus do 5 day week
And will try to get it down to 50 hrs a week

I love to have grown up whed all the cool cars you have in the us bill
But I was born in Australia
Grew up in Denmark Scandinavia
And have now been back in Australia for the last 30 years
I would love to build some of the cool cars that were made here down under
Unfortunately the very small amount of kits that I have seen of Australian cars are not anything cool at all
I did have a few cars in Denmark
And did go to Canada and the us when I was young
But I always loved the American muscle cars
But I think Australia has very cool cars to
We also got a bit of the us cars here

I have been to Australia twice in the 80's I saw a few American cars. I like the Holden (Commodore?) and the Falcon from the 70's. Those little Sport Utes are kinda cool to.

Interesting paint choice, unique for sure, look forward to the finished product !

Jv
Thanks Bob yes a bit different
Have put models on hold for a bit
I have been buying kits
And found i need to spend a bit more on tools and paints
I'm just not happy whed the finish I get at the moment
But will get around to it

i'm interested, how that glitter will look like. there is a lot of blingbling!
7 March, 15:28
Jv
Lol yes Dominik its hard to get a good pic of it
I'm not sure myself how it will turn out
The glitter gives it a ruff surface
And it will be interesting what happens when I sand it
Time will tell
