Talking Remember my first build?

Made from recycled materials (same way as the Nissan on this thread) in 2015, it has 189 individual components and it was my prinde & joy when it was done, since I have shown myself that I can do it. I'll have to admit that the Nissan is slowly turning into what I have always wanted the M3 to be, but I couldn't achieve to due to lack of experience. The wheels still spin, they are the only moving part on this model.
This is how the Bmw m3 gtr is holding up after almost 3 years since it was finished
In some small places the paint peeled away, and some panels came loose with the gaps between them enlarging due poor sticking tehinques, nothing too bad though, I think I will just leave it as it it, so it will stay as a witness for the past;
The only adjustmen made in these years is that I gave it some brake disks and a mirror "Fuzzy Dices" ornament lol.
Still needs the badges printed out. Nothing too serious or urgent. Nice memories come up to my mind when I remember working on this bad boy.

Now I do have some spare time to work on this model again.
I started today by adding the wheel arches.

Thank you, @elliott.
Spare time is definitely less as of recently. I am looking to work as much as possible on this build when I manage to get home.
