    Instructions for Tamiya Skyline r32?
    Hello, I bought a 1/24 Tamiya Nissan gtr r32 part kit from a seller on ebay, the kit was missing instructions and a few parts, I need specifically the standard r32 gtr instructions for the part numbers so I can contact Tamiya for the parts I am missing.

    Thank you.

    Which wheels for Tamiya kit?
    I am currently building a 1/24 Tamiya r32 skyline, for those not familiar with the kit the wheels fit on by pins, I am looking for some great detail wheels to go well with the kit but I don't know which way to go to find the correct rims, aoshima and fujimi do some real nice wheels but will they fit?

    Thanks, Dec.

    Thanks for the great feedback guys, its really keeps me motivated!

    John that motor is incredible, a 12 cylinder hemi , id say go with the 12 pack but whatever you decide to drop that motor into....it will definitely be crazy!

    Thank you for the support.

    Need some help identifying wheels....
    I have had these wheels for a while but I've finally found use for them, unfortunately i only have 3 of the 4 rims. I have no idea what kit they come from but im guessing some Tamiya kit, also i have no idea what tyres are for these rims.



    Hopefully someone knows.

    Thanks, Dec.

    Its been a while, to be honest not much work has happened since my last post on this build.

    Really all i've been doing is planning the project out, making mesurments, checking those mesurments, then checking again.

    Before there was a slight misalignment of the transaxle but now i am happy with it so i did a little mock up of the motor, stay tuned for this coming Thursday...

    Skyline Engine
    Does anyone know of anywhere that makes a resin model of a skyline engine from either a r32, r33 or r34 skyline?

    Oh and i've done a little work...





    It took a while to get the motor and transmisson lined up but its perfect, now the engine need stripping of that black paint which is a simple task and then primed and painted in a nice aluminium silver.

    Thanks for all the interest so far guys! Much appreciated!



    Weirdly enough this is the first picture i saw of the 1/24 quad cam Hemi and a soon as i saw it that was it, turbo chargers are a maybe at this point, really im just loving the look of the supercharger right now ha ha. No its not me who has a thing for pink Ferrari's ha ha but while we are on the subject of paint im thinking of a Tamiya acrylic lime green as the main colour then place mesh in random spots and spray matte black on those parts so it looks like a snake skin effect.


    EXACTLY! Im going to do what i can to this motor so it looks as if it has had modern day tuning, it will look insane!

    Yeah i agree, to be honest the Enzo nose has always put me off the car really. Me either, lets hope everything goes to plan



    Ahhh yes, i never thought this engine even existed at first but after looking at pictures of 426 Hemi's i came across this and just fell in love....



    So after that i tried to find out if there is a scale version and i did but i thought this big brute needed a huge supercharger!


    Ha ha, thanks friend

    =======================================


    I plan to detail the engine and engine bay as much as i can as well when its time but for now the main task is fusing these two together.

    I need to come up with a name for the car though, hmmmm............suggestions?

    So after waiting patiently this finally turned up on the 21st :D



    I began work by slowly cutting the front end off.



    I am currently preping the front end for further cuts, i also need to start preping the Enzo body for cuts, it is a little difficult to figure out where to cut it but i think im slowly getting there ha ha, but then again, moulding two very different cars together would take time.

    Keep you posted.
