Feel free to post your builds (this one, next one, any one) in the "Builds in Progress" area and the "Finished Work Gallery".
That way more people will see your stuff.
(Not everyone reads the introductions)

There are plenty of different areas for different types of posts.

Looks like you are off to a good start with the Suzuki.

Here is some views of the model








Time to do the diff - Prop shaft - Exhaust etc..









I abort the idea for the wheels to turn left and right
I changes that section of the build

Here is the body - The fire wall is also my own creation.
Foot pedals - The will be a R/H side model - rear mirror in the center 




Chassis - Seats and gear lever





Must not forget to put wipers on at the wind screen...




Thickness of wheel - will work easier when I assemble it ( used Polystyrene ) (just and idea that pop in my head)
















Bring the rear bumper more out

Here is the doors - I use some silver paper for the mirror (Chocolate paper)

My own design of the engine no particular patent - Something out of my head




Some idea for the wheels to rotate freely

I'm not a perfect builder yet, there is still a lot that must be improved
This was my 1st attempt to build a Suzuki SJ 410 4x4
I had a Suzuki at that time and I could not find any replica toy at any shop
One of my friends send a plain fold up paper model
So I decided to change it to a more realistic model
I cut out all the pieces and start to assemble it and create my own  parts for the rest of the model


The scale will be prox 1:72


The chassis is my own design

First, lets do the welcome thing...




Next...the photos...looks like some good work there.
You seem to be dealing with kits that are far from basic.
But everything is a bit of a mess with glue, stains, etc

Maybe you need to work on "cleaning up" your skills first?
Figure out some ways to keep your work area tidier and your fingers a bit cleaner.
Some guys wear gloves...I just stop and clean my fingers whenever I get glue or anything else on them.

Are you a rush builder? impatient?...if so, you need to find ways to slow down and build a bit more carefully.
And try to control the excess glue.
Maybe you are using too much glue in some areas.
You would be surprised how much better things stick with less glue on the surfaces.

What weights of cardstock are you using?
What types of glues?
Maybe start a discussion in the General area? this isn't the best place for responses.

Are you coating parts with glue? or painting them?
Its a bit too obvious.
I'm not fan of that...but if you must, I would suggest trying a thinner paint, lighter coats of paint or glue?

The Messer looks good, but  I still see some stains.
And the Spinner is a mess.
No nice way to say it.

Do you have a scanner?...if so, you can scan parts before you cut them up.
This way you can print a test copy and build it before you use the good parts...good to practice.
Or, the scan works to give you replacement parts in case you make a mess...it happens.

If you don't have a scanner, try tracing the parts (onto some cardstock) as you cut them out.
Then cut out and test build the traced parts...gives you more practice before you mess up the good parts!

A good model is greatly ruined by a messy build.
A simple model is vastly improved by an extra clean build.
Keep working on it.

Oh goody! Another Ontario modeller!
