This is an Aoshima kit. It's actually the D1 Kazama car. I made custom front flares to go with the rears that came with the kit. I custom made the wheels by adding lips to them and I built a 6 point cage for it. I also added a datalog gauge cluster, extended shifter and e brake .hope you guys like it.

I love it! Always been a sucker for the S-14's. Color is spot on as well as the wheels. Would love to see/hear how you made the lips for the wheels.

That came out beautiful! I like these cars, but I'm no expert. I'm confused about the whole Q/K/S13/S14/S15/240SX/Sileighty... :unsure:

Great build. Can I ask about the carbon fiber hood? Is that a sticker/decal?

Yeah, that's a transfer decal. You can find it online. About $8 to $10 a sheet. One sheet does about 4to5 hoods. Of course you can do any part of the car. Fenders look cool in this stuff.

Q naturally aspirated and k turbo slight difference in aero option packages. In the u.s they were all 240sx,s. 88 to 94, s13 . 95 to 98 s14. We never got the s15. Sileighty is when you swap the pop up lights on an 180sx s13 hatch and replace it with the Silvia grill and head lights. Sil/eighty. Hope this helps.
