I think I might order some kits in a couple weeks, now that I have a damn job. Gonna pre-order the Rasty PS13:

There's also this one with an R34 front bumper:

And probably order this to get started:

Fujimi makes great S13 molds. Not quite up there with Tamiya (and haven't owned an Aoshima one) but the S13 is one kit that they've been working on for a very long time, and they totally nailed.

I have 2 weeks left of school before summer. Going to do a couple kits over the time I have off: 7 weeks. Smile

Ad, you recommend anything to start with?

Depends what kinda car you wanna do. Fujimi kits build up pretty fast, but sometimes the molds are spotty so stuff won't fit perfect without some modification/persuasion. Tamiya kits are super-detailed, as are Aoshima in most cases, and will run a higher price.

Whatever you get, I'd start with Fujimi kits. They offer a million different versions of every car in Forza, and are about $20USD a pop. They're usually "curbside" kits (meaning they have the bonnet molded on and no engine inside) so they build quick and look great when you have a bunch on your shelf. The spotty fitment is a great training tool to get you into modifying kits to make your own bodykits and stuff.

Since I haven't been in the scene for about three years, I'm gonna start with some Fujimi S-chassis kits, and work my way up to some kind of 240Z. The vintage cars have lots of chrome and rivets and trim that requires a steady hand, haha.

Yeah, the guys on there are incredible. I wonder if my pal Jimmy (CrewDawg18) still hangs around. Dude makes perfect 1/24 replicas of any engine from scrap plastic and exhaust manifolds and headers from solder. He's clinically insane.

When you consider the effort it took to create it, it's really not.
