Presentation: Citroen 15 T.A. Rat Rod

History of this car is really strange. It was one of very first diecast kits in my hands, back in 2006 I bet.
I assembled it, have fun with it and then it go to the box with lack of some parts. Then I found it about year ago with other toy/model cars from my childhood. 1/24 aren't my playground so I decided to sell it. Unfortunately only Citroen left and I had to do something with it. Old car, so there was only one way-rat rod!
It turn out pretty well as for my abilities at the moment, but I left undetailed engine, so hasn't even got proper presentation, cause I wanted to correct this... but... I swapped seats from Corvette, so why not swap engine? I got one spare LS1 engine, but without cover... so I ordered another Corvette, just for engine cover, which finally stay unused.
Finally, car is done. Of course with some mistakes, but for that long project... it's good that's finished... ;)

Presentation: VAZ 2106 Pесто


I bought this car as part of the "Kultowe Auta PRL" series about year and half ago. I did some mods to the interior, broke windshield and leave it. Finally in December of 2015, I managed to get VAZ 2103 and swap windshields. Then did some other mods (i.e. Wunderbaum on interior's mirror) and drop it on custom F40 wheels, but I wasn't satisfied with effects. Some days ago I finally finish it, going a bit in russian resto style, so
-keep original state of car
-lowered using airrirde
-bigger steelies with low profile tires
I don't have much more to write, cause mods are simple.
