Shelby 427 1965 added a topic in Under GlassNismo S-Tune + Skyline Collection.This is Tamiya's new "Nismo-Custom" kit. It's essentially their old R32 kit but with a couple of new parts - Strut brace, steering wheel, exhaust system and wheels. It also comes with a few body kit mods to make it a bit more like the Group-A racer. Usual Tamiya build quality, shake the box and it assembles itself.
Mods to the kit were decals from the Aoshima Z-Tune, and I opted to put in front seats from an R34. I build models to represent my "ideal garage" and if I had one I would probably stick R34 seats in for extra comfort. I plan to get two more of this kit and build the standard R32, and then the 1990 Nismo homologation model.
Also shown are my current skyline models, and my 3 R32s - the blue one was the first model I ever finished and the middle one was built 2 years ago. It's nice to have a few of the same kit to be able to compare my abilities.

Shelby 427 1965 added a topic in Under GlassMk1 Golf GTI.Well I've been away from the bench for quite some time now, so I finally got back in the game.. This time, I wanted to push myself with engine detail. I always feel the engines let me down, so I wanted to push myself to do better. Armed with reference pics I got started.
No real modifications to the kit, this is Revell's newest Mk1 GTI Kit and it's a dream. All I did was add detail to the engine bay, and a decal to the rear window, and a mirror from a '65 Mustang. Detail to the engine bay consisted of wires and a water expansion tank, which for some reason Revell forgot, even though they left an indentation for one to be fitted... Odd.
This was my first time trying out a new line of spray cans from my local store and they're not great but they do have some cool colours, unfortunately I had to weather the outside to cover the blemishes.
Without further ado...

Shelby 427 1965 added a topic in Under Glass"Lara" - a very personal build.Well, I've wanted to do this for quite some time, so I guess it's about time I built my baby.
My first car, and my current car - a car which some of you may know from my first car thread that creeps up now and again in the General section.
There is an insane amount of custom work in this, unfortunately I wasn't able to convert it to right hand drive or put big bumpers on due to it being a Fujimi kit and not a revell one, but my car is technically supposed to have the small bumpers from factory anyway. It's as close as I could get to my car..
I could point out all of the various touches that I've done, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
These aren't the most recent pics of my car, the model is more up to date than the car pics, but you get the idea.
