First off let me introduce myself. My name is Russ aka Spoonman Dos.
I bumped into this site while surfing the net, and I am impressed with everything. I'm a car guy, but the model cars are what brings me here. They all look great. Keep up the good work. I'll post some of my creations when I figure out how to resize the picture. I look forward to my stay, and will share what I know, and hope to learn from you.

The kit is a Tamiya 240/180SX
Testors True Blue Pearl, Scale Auto Carbon Fiber decal on the GT wing, and Aero mirrors. The wing, mirrors, and wheels come from a Tamiya Calsonic R33 Skyline. Intercooler, exhaust was custom made, and a modified suspension.

Scale Auto Carbon Fiber decal on the GT wing, Scale Auto = Scale Auto Style? :confused: no... who's Scale Auto?

Looks great regardless! :cool:

What did you use for the lenses on the pop-ups? They look pretty slick! :D

Scale Auto = Scale Auto Style?

Think he means Scale Motorsport Jay.

Welcome Russ:wave:

That's an awesome 180sx, looks meaner than mine!

Where to start? Yes It's a 180SX. Scale Motorsports is what I meant (thanks Fly). You guys are quick with the responses, I'm not use to that.
As far as the contest, I might have to re-take my pics and submit.

The headlights were with an exacto. I used spare plastic for the headlight housing, and extra lights backed up with foil paper.

It's actually a quote from Bruce Lee. I have the collection.
So, tonioseven, you're in Cinn City? I'm in Dayton.
As far as the NSX goes, I have the Tamiya one (unbuilt) and the Revell one. The Revell one is a Drag Car that I'm thinking about re-doing before I finish it. I'll post pics later.

great models nice NSX looks real sweet ru done wiht the CTR or still working on it cause u need to fix the front bumper on that CTR and paint the bottom grill other wise its sweet.

SpoonMan Dos

I'm finished working with the CTR. I know I should paint the lower grill, but it's fine to me. The wing on the 180SX came off a R33 Calsonic Skyline. I made the exhaust from two BIC mechanical pencil ends (you know the part that holds the eracer). The winshield banner on the CTR is masking tape. Hey, it was a two week project.
The NSX was made by combining the Revell kit with the Summit Racing Firebird kit. I'll finish when time and funds permit.

Man... WELCOME TO AF yo.
those are some sweet lookin models there. I especially like the 240. and that NSX drag car is sweet too.

I bought a funny car kit and wanted to do the same type of thing to my revell corvette indy model... and i was wondering if you could send me a PM or email, and let me know how you did that to your NSX, and maybe send more pics if possible.

thanks
