Its Tamiya Skyline 2000 GTR, pulled it out from the stash, pretty much plan on keeping it stock, going to change the wheels , the kit comes with steel wheels, but going to change them out for a set of Watanabe wheels .

I had started getting the body painted but my string of bad luck with painting struck this build , and I am trying to strip the Tamiya paint

Here is some work done on the engine and exhaust
I am waiting for my new micro drill bits to get here so I can drill out the holes for the plug wires

I cut off the small exhaust tips, not sure which one I am going to go with

Awesome Build so far Jonathan. I am digging it man. I picked up one of these a while back myself and I want to build mine like the black one from Fast Five. I have even picked up two sets of Wantanabe's but I am looking for a specific set of Fujimi Wantanabe's since the first two aren't an exact match...lol Can't wait to see more of this build.

Chris, I want to do that one as well, what set of wheels are on the movie version

If you dont mind buying stuff from Japan, I know online hobby shop that has all the Fujimi Watanabe wheels sets selling for around $7

Jonathan.... the ones I picked up are Fujimi # 19124 which all are a deep dish.... too deep for the fronts and the other is Ashomia # 040201-700.... these seem too shallow for the rears. The Fujimi set that I am looking for and from what I can see looks mostly like what's on the car from the movie is Fujimi part # 19142.... looks more like the offsets, but I can't locate this set for the life of me. even been keeping my eye on ebay too. I don't mind if I need to order from Japan. that may be what I need to do....lol

The link I was going to give would be pointless, the only set they have instock is not what you want.

I am going to watch the movie the movie again to see the wheels

chris, just a thought .... ive got a skyline too that i'm building like the fast five car. the wheels are hard to find but i got mine from a kit. to me they look perfect and on the body im working with they fit great. also a staggerd set up. the ones i got came out of a fujimi #04026 toyota celica xx.. if you want i can take some pictures of the wheels and a mock up on my kit.

also, dont mean to jack the thread :-) but good start ill be watchin this build :-D

Jason... that would be great if you wanted to post some pics. I am sure Jonathan wouldn't mind since he would like to build that one as well. I appreciate it man. I have been searching for that right staggered set to make it look right too.

yea they are easy to find. and not expensive either. the celica itself is a curbside. the wheels are real nice quality.

Jason... those look perfect. thank you for the suggestion and for posing pics. I am going to have to pick up one of those kits now. I bet these are the same wheels that they sell in the one wheel kit I was looking for lol

Here is the body in color, after already stripping the body once, I really didnt want to take another chance with the way my luck has been going, so I used Model Master GTS blue Lacquer, I have never had this paint let me down

and here is the interior floor pan in flocking

and the door panels and dash

and did a little bit of detail work on the engine

and the exhaust tips in place
