How long were your Dark Ages? Sadly the dark ages seem to be something all (or at least the very most) of us must go through...
BUT WE ALWAYS COME BACK
Please build some more and I eagerly await the fresh pics...

The vehicle is 30,8 cm (38,5 stud) long. I used decals from a Tamiya 1:20 model kit. It was expensive for just a sticker sheet, and the decals don't hold well, so this is also the last time I use these. They are not exactly on scale with the vehicle. I don't know wich scale it is actually. I used some old building instructions from a model kit (also Tamiya, also 1:20, but much older (1976, used by my father)), some formula 1 magazines and pictures from project34.co.uk. I also used the one built by roscopc as a reference (thanks for that).
Well, I think I went into my dark age around 2000. Because of the juniorization, and because of my age. I was twelve at the time, thinking of being too old for LEGO (now I know better ) In the summer of 2007, I bought a MISB 8880. That was the set that ended my dark age. Soon after that I discovered the AFOL community.

Sadly thinking we are too old for Lego is the most common reason for people to enter their Dark Ages... We live in a very intollerant and competitive society
Good you found the road to Legoville back though !

Did you clean up the bricks before applying the decals?
They should stay put if the bricks are degreased i think..
May i ask where you got just the sticker sheet? I'm thinking on using them on my tank.
The build a frigate tutorail!

Is the photo lighting deliberate? It's an interesting effect...

More pics soon.
Very nice. I saw it on flickr yesterday or the day before. I like it. It's got a very nice shape and you have spent a lot of attention to the details.
