As a newbie here, I thought I,d share a few pics of my models first before I get into doing a full build. All of the above have been completed in the last 18 months or so, mostly out of the box.
Most recent completions are [...]

This little bugger was a birthday present from my brother. It's the second Fine Molds kit I've build and I must say it's not as good as Tamigawa stuff. Not a great fit of the parts, instructions leave much to be desired. Had to use my [...]
