Another thing I really enjoyed at Jabbeke’s 2014 model car show are the great amount of vintage model kits available. I met a guy from Belgium who claims to have more than 2000 vintage kits at home (from the 50’s to the 80’s). Can you imagine that? I took a few pictures of some of […]

One of the things I admire the most about racing and rally model cars are the paint jobs. Some guys must spend more time painting the cars than building them. Specially the rally cars. Of course there are always many decals involved but I can recognize a great paint job when I see it, and […]
