First Gen Lancer Evolution (1/24 Hasegawa)

Thanks to bro sky_tokyodrifter (a fellow modeler in Malaysia who is residing in Japan) who got me this RARE kit at a good price!

Lets talk a bit of history.. The GALANT VR4 is proven too big and heavy for the WRC events. Thus Mitsubishi's engineer decided to use the Lancer platform and transform it to a 4wd turbocharged rally machine. Thus the Lancer Evolution GSR is born replacing the Galant VR4 in rally events. It's a beast!

Next, will be Evo II. Hopefully I can find the kit !

1/24 Maisto Nissan GTR

The Nissan GTR model is highly sought by collectors around the world. This is the Maisto version of the GTR in the 1/24 scale. Well, the casting is pretty accurate however, the paint job is a bit disappointing because the paint job is a bit rough and the rear lamps are painted instead of made of clear red plastics.

However, the engine detail ( although half engine ) it is pretty decent for it's scale. The interior is also well replicated too. Well, Maisto is improving alot and proven value for money models for collectors.

Custom Volkswagen Beetle (For Evelyn Dear..)

Well, it is an ordinary friction toy which I bought years ago. The scale is approx between 1/18 to 1/24. Well can't judge much. I gave it a repaint in pink, blackout the windows as the interior sucks, and added details to the car.

This build is for my girlfriend actually. She likes the VW Beetle so much that I decided to custom one Hello Kitty version for her. The words on the body are written by myself using markers and the 'Evelyn + Andrew' wording are handwritten and sticked to the body. I also bought some Hello Kitty stickers to make it look lovely and sweet.

14th February 2009 is the date when we started out to be couples. So dear, this custom is for you. Only special for you. Hope you like it.

1/24 Fujimi Mitsubishi FTO

I build this kit straight out of box in less than a week. I want to prove something that is cleanliness is the most important aspect of building a car model. That's why the shine isn't that great compare to my other builds. I have a weird thinking right ?

Enjoy my crappy build :P

Fujimi 1/24 Initial D AE86 (Build for Takata)

Got a request from TKT(Takata) a diecast collector and an avid fan of the Initial D series. He asked me to buid this car out of box and here it is. It's not perfect cause it's very hard to do the dual tone color and the rounded edge fenders. No forgeting also wetsanding is also though due to many sharp lines of this body. Here it is.. enjoy...

Stock Lancer Evo VII RS

Here is my latest build. The Lancer Evo VII RS. I bought this kit just for the steel rims. I think this kit is a beauty and pity not much people appreciate those steel rims (although HTF item)

I don't know how some glue stain ( very minor ) found its way on the left door ( below the handle )and a little paint chip at the mesh area..still I consider it a sweet build though it's not my best build..

The Evo RS reminds me of Proton PERT (BFA 876) which was originally a RS spec Evo III...

Evo VII with V7 Imprezza WRX STi
