No I really appreciate that and that I think is a really important attitude. I'm just not there yet, and that's about me getting over my own prejudices about criticism from the "that's the wrong colour/shape/era brigade". Stupid I know but I just prefer to share here. That will probably change one day. I acknowledge it's my issue, not anyone elses.

Thanks Dave, yeah I'm really happy with some parts, and not so happy with others. That's all part of it i'm sure.

That's a stunner mate. You've pulled it off nicely and I reckon its your best yet!
I love the wheel rims, and the light/indicator lenses look awesome too!

Awesome! B)

Very nice Grove! :)

I owned an R33 GT25 5-speed for 10 years... until a cop car crashed into it whilst it was parked and wrote it off :angry:

Huge thanks for the paint mate. Soooo awesome and I have 2/3rds of the bottle left and all the thinner. Maybe I'll do a Nismo version?

Looks good mate. No one should feel they can't bring their stuff along to Cambridge. We have tables set aside purely for display, anything that you perceive to be wrong with a model is purely in your mind, to the uninitiated viewer they are always suitably impressed by almost anything.
There's nothing like overhearing someone making positive comments about something you've built, it drives you on to build more.
Honestly we've got a lot of real estate to fill up and I'd hate to see empty tables when we could have this fine example on display, so please just bring it along and bring anything else you can fit in the car.
The same goes for everyone else, it's a model show with competitions it's not about who wins and who loses it's about showing the public what we do and hopefully encouraging more people to take up the hobby, the more subjects on display the more interest will be generated. ;)

I've never displayed any of my kits, but would like to. Criticism doesn't put me off, as my day job involves my work being critiqued everyday. I do feel slightly nervous about getting my builds from A to B and back in one piece though.
