Nissan Gloria 280E "Gulf"

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Here is my newest finished build.. Its Aoshima Nissan Gloria 4 door hardtop 280E Brougham. Had some serious fitting issues with chassis, dash and door panels but i won that battle.. My first experiement with hairspray and salt techniques in weathering. Also i used some oilcolors for first time.. I think it turned out pretty good.. There is some scratch build parts like that foxtail in antenna, side exhaust pipes and printed japanese Car magazines.. Decals are from here and there from my decal collection.. Gulf livery has always been one of my favourites and this is my first "Gulf car" added on my collection.. Now i will let pictures speak.. Enjoy ;)

There is not any photos of chassis, since its battery type curbside chassis just painted in black.. Cheers! :)

So far, I've just laid down the rusty base. I have yet to start putting the "paint" over the top. :)

Very nice job on the weathering.  The contrast between the crusty race inspired exterior and the plush luxury interior is weird, but I really like it.

Very believable weathering on the exterior. I noticed the Lucky Strikes and the Play Boy decal on the dash. Very funny.
