hell yeah i love em, i mostly build cars, but i have a tamiya r1 and busa waiting to be built. Just haven't had time with school lately. Tamiya is the king of details, and parts actually fitting together though for sure. Im half way done with some huge like 1/10 or 1/8 scale porsche, but kinda lost interest becase i couldn't get the friggin hose in the engine bay to stay put so i boxed it back up about a year ago.
