After not being able to build for a month!! (which is waaay too long) I finally found time to finish this import car. It's an Aoshima Nissan Silvia S15, the Top Secret edition. I kept it simple: Pearl White with some blue rims and some minor sponsorship.
There are some things that I would have done otherwise if I had known before, but it is what it is and imo it looks good B)

Hope you guys like import-tuners.

it looks pretty good bro. i like these silvias in white.

i take it your talking about the ride height? its the one thing i don't like about the aoshima kits. the ride height is always funny looking when done.

Thanks bro :)
Yes it is the ride height, especially the rear wheels. The kit comes with 'real springs' that push the car too high. I didn't notice it until it was done.
Other 'issues' are the poor fitting of the hood and the rear wheels aren't centered.

I thought so. i have had the same problem before when i first started messing with aoshima kits. those springs suck for this.
theres always next time bro.

Clean simple and smokin'! Looks good from here. Worse come to worse, you can always tear down the suspension to redo that ride height the way you want at a later date.

The blue of the wheels make the model stand out, POP! Great job.
