1/25 Models

Thiese are my 1/25 scale model cars. I use to just build the car as instructed in the box but recently I saw some built with such detail they almost looked like the real thing. So I got back into the hobby. Right now I am hoping to build a 1/25 scaled version of all my past favorite cars that either I owned or just wished I owned.

My painting skills are still rough and I am hoping that over time I will improve that. I recently bought an air brush and that is a new level of comfort I need to improve on. So in saying this, please don't judge the painting too harshly hahaha.
