This model was completed relatively recently, it's probably the cleanest model I've created. It helps that there was no paint job on the body to screw up, since the white plastic it came in was the color I wanted. It could've used some small details like the black inside the grille and more interior detail. But at least I was able to paint the brake calipers red like a true Japanese car enthusiast (which aren't very easy to see, unfortunately). The worst part about this build is the reverse lights, which are very difficult to make neat if you're not great at painting, like I am. And like a lot of these Japanese kits, the hood isn't removable and there's not a complete engine, which is a shame. And yes, I put the Autech decal on the back even though I used the standard body kit, I didn't realize at the time what that sticker meant. Anyway, thanks for looking and tell me what you think.
Hey. Aoshima kit, custom-mixed Cobra Colors paint, Aoshima wheels, decals from various sources such as www.detailjunkees.com and my parts box, Scalemotorsport carbon fiber decals on the trunklid and hood, Scale Auto Style photo-etched brake discs, Studio27 safety harnesses and associated hardware, partial roll cage from an Aoshima Skyline. Thanks for looking.
Hey guys! I've started working on a recently arrived kit, Aoshima's TOP SECRET Nissan Silvia S-15 Spec. R. It's a decent kit. There are some fitment issues with the hood and front bumper but those should be easily solved. What will take some work is putting in an RB26 from my spare R32 kit, along with the transmission. I'll also use a single turbo set up and custom exhaust. Otherwise, that's as far as I've planned. it's really rough now, I haven't polished it up much. I just pulled out the dremel and started cutting and did a bit of sanding. I'll be working on this more as I close in on the end of my RX-7 build.
