Think of it as 3d Photoshopping lol

Althought I think it will take longer than photoshopping I think a model would be more rewarding because you can put it out in the living room and admire it more. lol Unless you have a high quality printer and use $$ gloss paper, I don't think you can get a full appreciation of your work. And you can take pictures of your models(then photoshop them) and post them up here!(usually pictures look better than the real thing lol)

well, if you can control your spend'n you won't have any problem and you should have another stash of money for buying kits, so you won't have to use your car money.

MAN !!! Shut up about being a newb. J/K ;)

Ok if you want to build models build em. It's a great hobby Imo. Expensive at times, but great. I really want that CrX model bad but can't get it since I've spent over 200$ since CHristmas.

Maybe you shouldn't start with a fujimi kit. Try a tamiya kit. Look for a car you like made by tamiya and choose it.

So go ahead, build like the wind. :D

:rolleyes:

I've ordered from the site before and it was good, a little slow but good.

It tooke about 3-4 weeks, I live in New Jersey, that should give you an idea of how long they take to ship.

Ooo if I haven't answered your question, the service is good. I don't know what you mean by respectable.

Yes it is pretty cheap. What I was recommending was Tamiya, a great modelling company. It's probably the best modeling company when it comes to cars. Highest quality, I guess. Good for beginners because High quality= less work=good for beginers. IMO much better to start with a Tamiya kit than suppose a not as good fujimi kit, revell, AMT, ect... But it's all up to you. Hope I have helped.
