Hi welcome to AF...some nice models there especially the Civic H/B glad you didnt rice it too much it would have been very easy to do. Models look well build but if you dont mind me saying one thing you seem to be getting quite a bit of Orange Peel, maybe something to look at when building your next model.

Good spotting man,
:bigthumb:
Yeah I know, the orange peel annoys me, but I have now rectified that problem by buying some 2000/1500/1200 grit wet'n'dry and some compound paste. The mini I am working on at the moment will be the first circuitR car with a proper paint job!
I will post it's progress up soon, just sorting out the pics now.

Welcome circuitR, I like the R32 & the exhaust of the Civic is cool.
For the Supra, the color choice is very good but 1 thing: maybe you can fix the little orange peel... but else I like this Supra.

P.S Lowcrome, the headlight has been removed for direct air feed to the turbo :bigthumb:

Us kiwis are clever little b****rds!
As for the neons, pretty easy really, I just went to an electronic store brought 8 blue LEDS and 8 500k resistors and wired them up in parallel. with 2 LEDS per circuit and voila! RICE!
As for the camber on the EG6.... um yeah, slight technical error, but hey it's a model. They don't have to be road legal. :smokin:
Thanks for the awsome comments guys, it's about time I found some like minded people.
Rock on :icon16:
