I can agree that most Revell kits are disapointing after building a tamya kit or two. Your cars look great, makes me feel like I need to start a thread posting some of mine, I just dont have a decent camera Keep it up and Ill keep looking!
Thank you for the kind words!
I have finished it for a while now but didnt get to take pictures of it until today so here they are:
I am currently doing the Tamiya 996 GT3

It's been no updates for a while now, it's because snow melted and i have less time to spend on modelling, but it doesnt mean i stopped
There is a 996 gt3 in the works, it's almost done in fact, i have a few body parts to repaint because of some weird reaction the paint had. Rolling chassis and interior is done.
Hey guys! Long time no updates!
I finally finished my Tamiya 996 GT3
It's not perfect nor my best, but i was anxious to finish it after a whole summer not touching it
Here it is:
And one more on the shelf:
Next one on operating table:
Tamiya 1/24 1985 Porsche 959
Oooo - wait 'till you build that sucker. Since you built the Fujimi 930 Turbo, you probably know what you're up against. That is a challenging kit, loads of fun and really nice when done, but boy, oh boy. It's a tough one.
Here's mine at about 50%

^There's a reason Fujimi gives you those little stands to display the engine on if you want. They're brilliant!
Classicmotoringllc.com - my new brokerage and consulting business based out of a lavishly converted first floor bedroom in Allentown, PA. I am always looking for quality enthusiast cars to consign, research projects or consultation opportunities. Keep an eye on my page as you can see my blabberings about cars and other such junk in the blog section!
Sadly i never got the 911R kit, an ebay messup and i bought the quattro instead.
On another note, the 959 is now done, not my best but still pretty nice, worst part is the window rubbers im not really proud of haha
Next on the operating table:
I'm kinda dissapointed, no engine to make, it's a really basic kit. I was expecting more but it'll be another porsche to my collection so no regrets hehe
Progress on the 935
Only missing the stickers, they will be my next challenge to tackle
And here's a new one i bought yesterday
Little update on the A4, honestly the best revell i had, so far everything fits very nicely
Wow that RS is stunning, is it a Fujimi?
Here's a little progress on the A4 DTM, it's almost 100% complete, all that's left are the side stickers, and the driver-side mirror that i lost somewhere in the garage
Next one on the operating table is the 993 GT2, and i bought this too:
As promised, the pictures
Tamiya 1/24 - 1995 Porsche 911(Type 993) GT2 Clubsport
Nato Black (TS-63)

That's awesome! How well does that kit build up? I keep pondering it, and am looking for a new winter project. Something that I can start on December 21 and finish on or before March 21, and the GT2 is one of like 3 kits I'm pondering...
They have the Internet on computers now?
It fits really well like most tamiya kits, but there is not much to assemble.
The engine is built in the chassis so its only a matter of painting it.
Interior is pretty good with a cage and a couple of facultative accessories.
There are like 4 different options for the rear spoiler.
Dont expect it to occupy you for a long time, i've done it in less than a week not touching it every day
I started on the 1995 Volvo 850 BTCC
I believe it's going to be a quick one, body is painted and there isnt that much to assemble.
Sheesh, you just keep churning these out!
Off to a good start on the Volvo. I think most of your time will be spent decaling lol
My current build keeps fvcking me over on the paint job lol...I've already stripped it once, and repaired too many flaws in the finish, both before and after clearcoating...but getting there.
They have the Internet on computers now?
Made some progress again
Chassis is done
Interior is done
The roll cage was something and the seat turned out looking pretty good too
Little update, Body is ON
I have started the stickers but my camera ran out of batteries(read "i forgot it ON")
Wow man that's a killer collection, i'm jealous of all those cossies
The volvo is finally done, stickers were getting old and ripped all the time so it added a little challenge to the thing hehe
Went to my local hobbyshop today and here's what i left with
-Revell 1/24 - 2011 Mercedes Benz C-class DTM Bruno Sprengler
-Tamiya 1/24 - 1976 VW Golf Group A Kamei
Some progress on the mk1
Still have the red paint to do on the body, then a lot of touch ups on the yellow
