    Hello with all,I present some photographs of my personal collection to you and my work,I hope that you will like that.

    (sometimes,excuse-me for my bad english language,thanks...)

    My first RT-10 was a red Burago and I made a new paint,white with a blue pearly varnish

    I've remakes the interior into silky white/black

    One of my hobbyes is to built prototypes of Viper a the 1/18 scale for my collection...it doesn't have there SRT-10 crosses,therefore I built one of them there is little...here how:

    I cut the back of a GTS Burago and I put it on a SRT-10 AMT-ERTL:

    I cut the rear bumper completely in large...

    [​IMG]

    So,for the moment,it's not easy but you look at this:

    [​IMG]

    I cut it slowly because I can't mislead me...

    But front,it's necessary to prepare the SRT-10,to remove its trunck to him and to cut the reinforcement between the wings...

    So when you cut down,you can test several times,at left and right,and to check alignement in top of the windshield...
