@ Moog's tank.

Looks like my CMCs are no longer the kings of this thread.

With that kind of skills, Waldorf should slap together some nice Five Star Stories resin kits.

I forgot about this thread! Yah that Tank is bad a$$ good job with that man!

Anyways, I got all the models of the cars I have owned that are available!

All are 1:18 scale:
These models are the ones I will modify to look like my cars:
- 1995 Honda Civic
- 2001 Audi TT

- 2001 Lexus GS300
- 2004 Acura TL
- 2000 Volkswagen Golf
These are the ones I just purchased because I either got a good deal or just like the cars:
- 2004 Mercedes sl500
- 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse (I want to try and modify it to look like my cuz's eclipse)
- 2001 Honda s2000
- 2000 Dodge Viper

These are not 1:19 scale:
- 2nd gen GS300
- 1998 Honda Civic (modified to look like my 2000 civic)
- 1998 Honda Civic (lowered)
- 2000 Honda s2000
- 2000 Volkswagen Golf

I used to make models quite a bit when I was a kid.

As I got older, I started to build RC airplanes to fly them....so models took a back seat.

Last year I got the "bug" again to build a model.....so I thought I'd go "complex" and build one of my all time favorite tanks.....so after some research I bought the kit.....and after many months of fun, it's complete.

I dunno what I'm gonna build next.....so many choices.

Oh true.

But, LEGO doesn't have any panel lines.

Oh damn. That would be fine in my office. Any die cast budget I have though is going to be going toward the 1:18 CMC Testa Rossa. That sucker isn't going to be cheap (> $300).

On the value-for the-dollar scale, Minichamps finally released their 1:18 Lotus 79 F1 car as driven by Mario Andretti and Ronnie Peterson.

Have you guys ever run across a model of a Koenigsegg with the proper hinges for the doors? I've been pretty successful in curbing my collection habit, but I have a spot on my desk that needs to be filled.

Here is a case I made, came out OK lol

Mark my words Sir, I'm hunting your ass down and waving an auction catalog in your face if the Gundam in Odaiba ever goes on the market.
