    Aoshima/Tamiya Nissan Fairlady Z 350z Nismo

      I’m kind of surprised at myself for not having built a Z33 or Z34 up until now – specifically the Z33, as it very much feels like an import poster car for the 21st century. It’s not an uncommon sight around here, and even when people not very interested in cars see them they immediately know it’s an iconic…

    I’ve never actually watched the Cybertron series all the way through. I stopped with Energon, since apparently Cybertron turned into a complete continuity clusterfeth. Still though, some of their designs aren’t too bad. Hot Shot certainly received a cosmetic upgrade from his Armada and Energon appearances.
