2015 year summary and Lada 2107

I haven't post for long, long time, I apologize for that and promise I'll do better next time ;)

It’s New Year’s Eve, so I want to show a little summary of last year. I started my scale car adventure in December 2014, so this summary will contain cars also from that month.
Cars bought in 2015: 119
96 1:43 cars
21 1:64 cars
2 1:24 cars

I modified 39 cars and build one. 4 of it need to be redone. I also have 10 cars currently on workshop.
Also I did interior repaints for 3 cars which aren’t mine.

Plans for next Year?
-Finish all cars from workshop
-Photograph at least 75% of my collection and make it affordable to watch for everyone
-Reach 20k views on my blog (currently near 4k it's 3992! C'mon!) and 2k likes on Facebook

And now, Lada 2107. I modified this car as my first tuned scale car. Now I smoked headlights and painted bumpers+grille in matt black. I also redo ducktail.

Twin Build #4: Volga M21

It's really sad, that I almost don't have time for posting and even for work with my scale cars :/

So fourth build was two Volgas.

Yellow one was stock from АВТОМОБИЛЬ НА СЛУЖБЕ and presents a car from III series.
I mixed it together, to made two proper scale cars for my collection :)

What's new in the workshop #10 "Time to go back"

I didn't post for long, long time. Sorry for that, but I don't have much to post sadly. When I got some time, I work with fast and easy jobs, and they're totally uninteresting to post. But today I decided to start working with old models, cause everyone of it need to be reworked a bit.
Today on workbench were:
Mercedes Actros MP1
MAZ 503B
Jelcz 317
Lamborghini Huracan (2x)

Hot Wheels Workshop: Part #4-Fall in love

Hi! I thought I can post something about Lada, but I search through pictures and there are no updates! I'm shocked a bit... But even if I have 5 next HW on workbench, I'll know work only with 1/43 scale for some time ;)
Last thing for now from HotWheels, that I want to show is Nissan Skyline C111 "Kenmeri", inspired by Kato's blue one. Probably it's most advanced HotWheelsCustom from my workshop, full repaint, custom made rear wall, custom made rims and tires, custom made rollcage, oil cooler etc. You'll see on photos ;) It isn't 100% replica of LibertyWalk one, cause it's got another type of ducktail, rear lights, some minor changes in mine 1/64 car :)

Hot Wheels Workshop: Part #3-Slow down!

Another post about HotWheels, sorry for this. I've got really busy time in school, and don't seem to be better in future.
After four HW done, I'll pause for a while-now got only lowrider Chevelle on bench, and Huracan in drawer.
All power of will now go to the NissanLada ;) It's too good project to lay on bench such long time!
But now I want to invite You to read a post, which conlude my HotWheels work for now.

Hot Wheels Workshop: Part #2-Still learning

Maybe some of You are bored with me, still modding HotWheelses ;)
I'm also working with Lada, but for now I have a lot of sanding, so I can do it only some minutes per day, to not destroy my fingers completely ;)

As You remember, I present orange Silverado last time.

Hot Wheels Workshop: Part #1-Introduce

Some of You maybe know my Facebook page so title of post won't be suprising. This week I started renewing two Chevys Chevelle SS, but in little different scale. They're 1/64 Hot Wheels die-casts. They were in bad condition, chassisies almost didn't exist. But after some time, they end up as really good (remembering previous state) scale cars ;)

Presentation: Nysa 522F Resto

Firstly I want apologize for title: I do research, and still didn't know which version my Nysa scale car presents. It's really close to T (Towos; tow states for "towarowo"-commodity, os states for "osobowa"-personal), but my hasn't got two windows on the driver's side. It's also really close to "F" (Furgon-van), but has got windows in rear and side doors, "Furgon" doesn't have it. So I named it "F" cause it's easier to made glass instead of metal covers, than made glass in side of car.
Car comes as Polish Citizen Milita car, nicknamed "Suka", which you can translate as "bi*ch" ;) It's caused by fact that officers of Militia, take people inside this car and beat them. It takes a lot of work to remove door from driver's side (only "suka" comes with slided doors on both sides) and this side isn't very smooth, You can notice this in pictures :)
But I always wasn't really good at talking, so let the pictures speak for themselves:

Make: ZSD Nysa
Model: 522F
Model maker: IST Models for DeAgostini's Poland "Kultowe Auta PRL"
Scale: 1:43 diecast
List of mods:
-removed door from left side of car
-removed top-strip from whole car
-removed bumpers
-removed rear reflective lights
-removed wipers
-car painted to RAL 5018
-wheels from Warszawa 203
-lowered suspension
-interior and chassis done from scratches
-wooden floor in interior
-imitation of airride suspension system in rear
-set of Work Equips inside
-dashboard painted in body's colour
-additions painted silver
-rear lights repainted
-polish registration plate, type 76' on rear

I think it's all, I'm going on holidays next Saturday, I think there will be no posts, but I'll inform You on my Facebook page ---> <---
