More from the man himself..

Greetings, Im Raees Amien and im am a 22 year old car nut and model builder from South Africa. ive been building models since I was 8 but in the last 6 years I have been getting into cars. But a bit about me first. I am a huge car person and have had a passion for cars since an early age. I am a lover of sketching, photography and I am a founder of R.T photography. We specialize in car photography as it is what we know best. I am also currently studying Industrial design and hope to tie this in with my passion for cars one day.
So more about my models. The model car scene in South Africa is relativly small and when I started i found it quite difficult to get it right. But after being exposed to the net and so many forums and websites I started to get more involved. With this new knowledge I started to try new things like making custom bodykits and parts. This has helped me to get to where I am today.I mainly focus on Japanese cars as they are my favourite and inspiraion comes from all over. So please do watch this space as it will updated regularly with my latest work.

The last Laugh 67 Completed.

Finally got her done and was really satisfied with the end result. I had way more ideas but i have to many projeks on my hands right now and i didnt want to rush this build. Some parts you see might not be available elsewhere and were built by endlessprojeks. I had decals lined up but my printer broke down and have to get it repaired. On to the next Projek batman.. Enjoy and thanks for looking.
