I'm new to this forum and I would just like to say hello to you all.

I seen some of the pictures of people's models and they look great. Seeing them makes me want to try and do the same with my models lol.

I have been building models for a while now, starting with the cheap sets (they look horrible lol). Recently I decided to go for the more expensive kits (Tamiya).

1st kit - Subaru Imprez WRC - experimental kit and didn't go too well.
2nd kit - Mercedes CLK GTR - had a good go at it but not too good looking either.
3rd kit - Mercedes-Benz CLK DTM 2000 - started a bit of it, found this forum and used some of the great tips from this forum.

Here are some pics of the CLK DTM 2000 - comments are welcomed because there are always room for improvements.
