Great thread - and great build!
I've actually got several car and motorbike kits which I bought a few years back when I knew I needed a busman's holiday from aircraft (which, of course, I never took! )
Checking out a thread like this is a bit like opening Pandora's box for someone like me, because it holds the irresistible lure of something so different and tempting from what I'm committed to (for the next 9 months or so, at least!).
But, I shall not weaken! LOL! My resolve is strong to stay the course with my Luftwaffe book builds ... but, WOW! - I think I'd better book my place for an Auto Modeller build next year, because this looks seriously fun!
All the best
I'm thrilled that you like my maiden auto build. It's certainly different then military aircraft modeling. I've been a race fan since 1963, so the cars I'll build all have a special meaning to me.
I just finished sanding, rubbing out, and polishing the clearcoat. I'm speechless which almost never happens to me. I haven't even waxed it yet with the synthetic polymer polish I use for My Sports Coupe, as the shine is incredible.
I just might build another race car in my stash next, then my 1st 1/72 multi prop with AM goodies as I've changed my building philosophy to drop down in scale for big multis, as time and space is starting to become in short supply.
Looking forward to the day when your 1st build blog appears in AutoModeler. Now that would be a 1st that even Jim would never have given a 2nd thought to.
