MK I | ratted

Long time no see guys! 
At the beginning of this year I get out and I made some photos to my Mk I VW Golf. This car appears in 1974 and since then the Golf is a legend. Useless to spend time with car’s history. We all knows what das mean VW Golf represents for the automobile history.
Contrary, I’ll describe a little the mods I made to this model. The base is a Solido Model at 1@18 scale. The only openable parts are the doors. As you remarked, lately, the 1@18 models are conceived as 1@43 ones without openable parts and no steering front wheels. So thank you Solido. You didn’t like this! And not for this reason fully recommend this car, but also for its amazing proportions. I get in love with this model… at first sight! And instantly I decided tu rust it all! I dropped down, I putted bmf on bumpers and lateral trims, and I destroyed the interior. On a read door I get off the door trim and I scratch built the inner metal door panel.
But more interesting is to show you what I did than to describe it using countless letters grouped in countless words!
Enjoy the ride!

welcome | 2o17

Dear friends,
2o16 has gone forever!
As usual, I’m looking back to see how it was the year passed.
And I think it wasn’t bad at all. I know it, I see it in my shelf. But unfortunately the lack of time made me to stay a little far from the blog. I didn’t publish as much as I wished and this annoys me a little. But the good thing is that the blog is still alive and I'm still making models. It would be interesting to do an inventory of the works I finished this year but is useless. Like any counting in general! Hoping I’ll be able to post more often in the next year, as usual, I’ll show you some statistics for this year: Map gradient and countries top 10 (I prodly can tell that users from over 9o countries visited custom | scale | car)
Regarding the hardware platform used to visit custom | scale | car the preferred one is the desktop but I have to remark that tablet looses terrain in front of the mobile phones I'm very curious to see this at the final of 2o17. I imagine that the tablet loose its terrain because the mobile phones become more and more the device I can not live without.
  And finally the evolution of the N° of visitors from the beginning till now
Finally, new year, hew header. Please find out the new header representing an R12 by Solido and a conversion I made having as base this model. May be, once, I'll tel you the story....
I wish you a full of models 2o17! And I propose you to reconsider the modeling by going back to the origins : modeling for pleasure. Let's forget about RLM, the sun burnt colors and so on, and let's make some models we would display proudly in our shelves!
Stay colse @ custom | scale | car
