    Reshaped the rear bumper and added the bits of plastic trim. Shape wise it looks much more accurate now.

    EDIT: Just for comparison, the changes to the rear area. First pic is before, second is after:

    welp, I just dropped one of those break resistant plates on the floor, and it shattered with so much force that a decent sized shard flew back up and nearly took my eye out, leaving a ~15mm long gash in my forehead. I'm ok though :)

    I was messing around with my old telescope and my iPhone camera... This might work for making blueprints from some of my diecast models if I can just line everything up.

    This was taken from around 15 to 20 feet away. There's some distortion since I was simply pointing my iPhone camera into the viewpiece unfortunately.

    Well, I turn 24 tomorrow. Somehow, it's not making me happy the way birthdays used to. Used to be a day I could do no work, eat lots of junk, and not feel guilty about any of it. Now it's just reminding me of how I wasted 6 years trying to stay a teenager, two of them thinking I was still technically a teenager and so had all the time in the world, four of them thinking I was still in my early 20s and so had all the time in the world. Now I'm into the middle part of said 20s and still a cellar dweller trying to nurse a $280 car in anticipation of more-remunerative work that never seems to come along. Think I got the 30 Boomer Blues, but 6 years early and without the hot car, own house, ability to no longer care what people think of me, or anything else that might be good about being a 30-year-old boomer.

    Well I am back from Norfolk and ready to kick some serious Arse and chew bubblegum, and I am all out of Bubblegum.....

    Okay well the Holiday was uneventful came away from Pond house with a free GoPro Type C cable due to the previous tenants forgetting it (sorry but I have it now and I declare Finders keepers! on it) did some boating, walking and enough boring stuff on Dex (yes that Samsung DEsktop eXperience thing) so I could remain active on here and stay chatting but also I found out via my younger brother that my dads car is rather famous.....

    https://www.scotsman.com/news/weath...mALXTByH7yzTllXV7PBvzz_Nbtsvv0gtWvX7zjeTQBtBo

    The car in that photo with Registration SW13DSY happens to be my dads car no less! I think its a stock image of the previous owner driving it because neither my mum (who drives it all the time) or my dad (Who has to put in a request to drive form in triplicate 3 months in advance) or myself was driving the car in the image, as for my brother well....he never drives it, only rarely and I think in overall mileage driven on it I think I might be the one whos logged the most miles on it :p

    Took a break from the model after the last post, resumed it again today. Modelled some brake lights and exported it into my Unity game to see how it looked with some actual materials, quite pleased with the outcome.
