Completed: WRX STi

Well this is my first model finished, although I made a few mistakes, I am fairly pleased with the results. I decided not to push my luck on my first model, so did not clear coat in the end.
With hindsight it could have done with another coat of paint, but as I did not have any experiance with Tamiya spray paints, I did not want to run out halfway through another coat
I still can not get the hang of the really small decals, I think I might have to buy some Microsol and some smaller fingers!

Unfortunately I can not take any out door pictures till the weekend as it is dark morning and evening here. I will take some Saturday and if they look better I will post them.
Anyway, here it is.
Time to start another kit, any comments appreciated.

Superb first showing. You're off to quite a competent start!!

(plus I like the subject! )

Also, I think you're missing your side markers.

That would be one of the mistakes I mentioned, I now know never to file small pieces of plastic anywhere near a carpeted floor

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

I think it looks great! Great, clean build. Very good paint job too, I think you did fine without clearcoat. I'm looking forward to your next build, it will be wonderful.
