Well, I got this trade deal that still going on pending me shipping out my end of the deal, which will be in the next few days.

The sprues and what's in the box. What's not shown is a Nissan Pathfinder pamphlet that also was in the box (thanks ScaleCentral :) )

The body. Unfortunately there's no detachable hood... But then again there's also no engine as well.

The rest of the sprues.

Paints I'll use for the body. I already masked off the area I'm going to paint before I posted this. I'm going to paint it two tone. Either Metallic Grey (XF-56) or German Grey (XF-63) on top and Dark Sea Grey (XF-54) or Neutral Grey (XF-53) on the bottom. But I'm not sure which at this point. I'll have to make some paint chips right now.

I'll be watching this, I love this kit and turned one into a 3-door model in the past (since that's my favorite style).

Thanks. And cool. If I was able to convert this into a '89 Truck SE V6, I'd do that but I can't.

A new paint job. I had to mix the paint on the upper half myself.

Yeah a truck might be a bit tougher to do, though if you're not too worried about scale, you could find one of the old 1/20 Lindberg Nissan pickup kits.

 

Here's my 3dr:

I don't have the colors I needed in spray paint. So no I didn't spray it. Also, the top color isn't an actual color for sale; I had to mix it myself. Combination of Gunmetal, Silver, Gloss Black, and some grey.
