After more than 10 years in the making, I finally completed this model. The result is not something I'm proud of, but at least it's completed and now there is space in the workbench for another project (this one was on and off the workbench for so long that the previously applied clear coat had to be sanded off as it cracked in so many places...).

Well, here are some photos of my Fujiwara Tofu Shop AE86 in 1:24 scale (Fujimi kit #183213):

Only ten years? That was fast!

Now seriously: nice build. And gave me an idea to try (again) the white finish. Yours looks that good!

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice especially the glass. Very realistic.

Done and in the books. Looking forward to your next build crossing the finish line. I'm pretty sure it will be way less then a 10 year build.
