some of the model cars i've built over the last few years i build all sorts of cars though realistic (rusty) are probably my faves. the background used for these shots is a garage diorama i built for a model show years ago. it didn't win. there again i didn't expect to. what i also didn't expect were other (winning) competitors querying out loud why some other people had bothered to enter at all given the quality of their entries. that cured me of the desire to spend sleepless nights finishing models to the best of my limited abilities in time for a show, now i rarely even attend them at all never mind compete.
