I've been in to modelling since about 1997 and it's been a bit of an off/on affair, mostly off though.

I'm mainly interested in, and pretty much only build 1/24 scale cars, although I do appreciate all models.

I have recently given up smoking cigarettes after a 20 year career, and decided to take up modelling again to help get through the process of giving up. It's been nearly 4 months and have managed to complete 2 builds, with a 3rd one in progress although I'm having some challenges with it and am loosing motivation slowly.

Anyway here are a few pics of the recent builds.

Cheers.

Welcome mate! Those two look pretty good to me!! Good luck on the quitting smoking! It can be a tough road but you will get there! Dont worry about losing the mojo too much it happens to us all! Different ways to get around it ..I find looking at other peoples builds helps me..or trying a completely different subject, watching a documentary usually gets my juices flowing again too. Good luck! Look forward to seeing more!

Good to have you here, and nice to get yet another petrolhead on board!
Those 2 look great, I wish that I could get leather seats to look that real.

Cheer!
For the leather look I used semi gloss clear over the red base colour which i washed with a darker red paint to give the seats that worn look.
