I didn't see a started thread so I hope its okay I started this one.

Here is my Build #24 first completion. I am probably going to finish up a stalled race car build next.

1955 Porsche Speedster 356A racer.
Revell kit with Fujimi/Testors wheels and tires, and headlights and rock guards. Scratch made exhaust and the rear wheel openings put back to OEM shape (the kit comes with them radiused). Engine wired and detailed up.

Love that little stinger exhaust poking out the rear.

Mitch, very nice looking set of Porsche ya have there.
Cole, real stunner, love those wheels.

I am calling this one done. 
I messed around today with panel line washes and some more race weathering. 

Edit: I deleted the previous pics. I simply needed to try and fix that messed up windshield. 

I spent a couple hours in total today polishing out windshield and doing more weathering. At least an hour just on polishing out the windshield with the following wet sand paper, 
400/600/1500/2000/2400/3200/4000/6000/8000/12000 then corn startch and some ultra sound gel mixed into a paste. 

I masked off the wiper sweep in the windshield. Then spent some more time with my Iwata HP-BH air brush and black wash. 

My friends call me Curt.

If you're not making mistakes you're not trying new things.

Strive for excellence, and perfection will find it's way into your projects.
