featured modeller: mario aka endlessprojeksEp1

endlessprojecksEP1 aka mario is my featured modeller today. i first saw his build in SPC and his style is something different. his style is what you would say "sick" (in a good way). elements like aggressive wheel fitment for that hellaflush movement as seen in his rx7 and silvia S15. and also a very cool lowrider project he is currently doing.

he also has a link and can be seen here:

a little info about mario:
"As far as a little info about me: I was born and raised in Los angeles ca. Ive been modeling model cars since i was 13 years of age. Back then the lowrider scene was really huge and being latin american its a big part of my culture. The import scene in california has got really big in the past several years. Hellaflush cars are getting more exposure out in the west coast. I also have a big passion for photography, mainly automotive,fashion, people, and models. I like to scratchbuild my own parts sometimes when i get crazy ideas. hopefully i can start marketing my own stuff soon. "

featured modeller: PaulC aka Paul Conrad.

another feature modeller today is an avid fan of lancer evolutions, and a local also. one of the best team orange mitsu lancers ever done in scale, and the best part is that the whole thing is scratchbuilt, even the engine, and all sponsor logos and design are handpainted rather than decaled. watch out for his full detail full open nissan GTR. definitely one of the best gtr build out there today.

paul writes:
"i used to collect diecast cars specifically Lancer evolutions, but it came to the point where i cant find diecast evos or its too expensive for me. so i tried building Static models. im a very slow builder, usually it takes months to finish a kit. Because i collect diecast, i always try to make my models in par or better than diecast models. the beauty of building models is that you are hands on and in control of the results, that wahtever you do as long as you have patience and a little creativity, you'll make that piece of plastic better than any mass produced diecast car money can buy."
