I still remember my first model car kit: it was a modified König Ferarri Testarossa. It took me more than a month to complete it and it looked…uhm…interesting… After that model kit I tried my luck with another, but the result remained the same: it looked like crap!
So I decided model kits were not the thing for me. Then I forgot about it and made the same mistake by buying a Oh My Goddess! Belldandy model and tried to do it right this time. It is still looking great in half completed state. 😉
That’s why I have a lot of respect for the people who are capable of doing model kits and doing them the right way. For example I came across joh2 on Youtube who posted amazing videos of his model kits in all different states/steps of completion. My personal favorite is this red 4 door Toyota Corolla TE71:
I really like his personal touches, like the black vinyl roof (my dads TA60 Carina used to have one!), the sunroof, the hood scoop and the trunk spoiler!
Another great one is this second generation CRX:
And his last creation, a Corolla Levin AE86:
