Hello fellow model car enthusiasts, i was told by a fellow member to show all my drawings so more people could see my artwork (thanks technica
and if you want to show your artwork then feel free). For those who do not know i am a 13 year old boy and i LOVE cars with a passion, just like all of you. I started to draw cars for the same reason i could collect them, because being 13 means not owning a car (but no one said i can't drive
, my dad lets me drive around our little neighborhood in his 04 sentra, manual of course ;) When i was around 11 i started to draw cars and then i eventually got better with no one to teach me. So take a look at them and tell me what you all think and please tell if you have requests on stuff for me to draw.

c class AMG(age 13)

i have been really into rally cars so i drew this morris mini which is my most current(i am working on an rs200, lancia 037 and peugout 205 rally
so keep an eye out for those)

So now it is time for the moment i had been dreading, my collection. I started out by collecting 1/64 cars then i worked my up to 1/24 and then 1/18 (been collecting them for about 5-6 months now) which are a lot more better (IMO). Being 13 and all means i have no money and i could only get models on special occasions and if i mow the lawn and so on. Anyways i started out by believe it or not by buying a couple autoarts, kyoshos and minichamps but my parents thought they were to expensive and they kept getting on my case for it and it ultimatly lead me to selling them and then buying more lower end models which is better because when i sold the 6-8 higher end models i cant remember how many but i was able to buy my current collection of 25 (all used tho).So here they are i do have a couple that are all taken apart for future models.(SORRY 4 NOT SO GOOD PICs)
This is my favorite model because it was my first ever 1/18 which was given to me by my neighbor who was moving at the time.


I also did my first interior detailing job on this model.I love the old maistos the details are awsome.

Hey Boss, great to see this topic up!


I think the size of your collection doesn't matter. More so as you are still young. Grow your collection slowly. It's a hobby anyway not a competition. :)
Thanks so much Technica you are so right about it not being a competition, and a really big thanks to you for your kind comments and you were the one who gave me the suggestion on this post so again thanks ;)

It's not the size of the collection that counts its what's in the collection. Btw love the jeep and C4 ZR1
Quick question where did you get the corvettes spoiler from?

Thanks for the info,and don't worry about the name confusion. In fact I plan on dropping a 1:18 C5 Z06 engine into my 1:18 C4 vette then painting it to looking a 96 C4 Grand sport so technically it makes it a "1985 Corvette C4 Z06 Grand Sport" or something like that

Great drawings B4L - keep it up and you'll only get better and better! And that shot of the X5 and wrangler is great! It's exactly how the X5 should look with some off-road wheels!
