    Wow havent posted here in a while...
    Feel Free to skip past all my writing if it bores you :D  just vote and comment! :D 

    So, here's the story, me and my brother both bought each other plastic model cars, the goal? To make them look sweet! So, now that our hard works are done, presenting The Blue Sil-Eighty from Initial D created by yours truly(There will be an update with the driver, Mako, when i find a @#@$% head to use for her!) :D  and The Shiny and Silvery Acura Integra created by my brother. So i will list the details later, However if you guys could kindly take the time out and vote which you like better and possibly give a few comments, good, bad, random, or bizarre ;) 

    Both cars are built from plastic model kits skill level 2 :)  This is my brothers 5th model, but his first in about 7 years. This is my first ever build-able model car :p 

    ONWARD!:

    Now as i said, blues mine, silver is my brothers, we will start with my brothers: Revell Acura integra, hood opens with fully built engine. Not much chop work or hard modding done. Car was put together with taste choosing all the right parts. The addons include a custom visor over the rear windshield made from a piece of plastic. An intercooler in the front bumper. custom stained glass windows. This car did not come painted, my brother painted the car and everything on the car himself. Also, the wheels were taken off a different car and had to be "modded" to work on this car. Also the tires had to be cut and refixed to fit the rim. A lot of work was putt in to making this car sit as low as it does :D  Nothing special about the interior, sprayed black that's it. The headlights and taillights were made by him and are beautiful.

    Cons: Not much A few paint blotches, and some glue stain not a lot though. Beautiful car!

    Here's some singular pics :)

    There was a picture of the engine, but my brother didn't like how it came out :( 

    Now onto the next car Mine: My car is a Fujimi Nissan Sil-Eighty(hopefully my future car) :eek: ) Unlike my brothers car my car came already painted, a good thing for me, but also bad because i wasn't able to let paint fix my errors :(  anyhoo Although my car may be a bit more choppy than my brothers i have a lot of work in it. I cut a hole in the roof to put in the sunroof, Cut off the original front bumper and put on this one to make it look lower. Changes the wheels to bigger lower profile wheels and made it sit as low as i could. I also replaced the exhaust and stole my brothers idea :eek: (the rear window visor). I also added an intercooler in the front bumper and custom painted the front and back taillights. Changes to the interior include custom painted black and blue striped racing seats, A custom racing steering wheel, a nitrous bottle and a mini model of the car. I couldn't get a good picture of the interior :(  Final touches were the stickers on the intercooler, windows, and wheels.

    Cons: MUCH glue stain on the windows. Some of the parts that i had to paint(interior, back windows and the side-panels) are kind of sloppy. There are a few rough edges where i cut the sunroof and bumper but they can be fixed with epoxy, again much glue stain on body and window(hate super glue)

    I like how they really look like ricer kids cars hahaha. I understand if its unintentional but nevertheless... the silver one does appeal more. Add some duck tape motif holding the bumper on the blue one...oh and a coat hanger to keep the muffler on hahah.

    I have to base it off of execution and for me the silver gets it. Both have neat ideas going on, and both have mishaps that could be refined on the next go round.

    They look cool nonetheless and you got to have a good time with your bro, I count that the most important part.

    I think the silver Accura looks better. Nice job on both though.

    His, the wheels on yours look like they are about to snap off, but for your first kit, you did really well. Maybe straighten out the intercooler as well.

    Thanks for the comment, the wheels had to be done like that because they were too big, it was either tilt them, or cut up the fender to make it sit lower, so id rather tilt them :)
