Aoshima Nissan 1973 Skyline 2000GT-R KPGC110

Recommended Posts

Continuing with the 50 years of GT-R theme here is my 2 gen GT-R I build from the LB Works kit. It’s all OOB stock. Here’s a little info from Japanese Nostalgic Cars website. 

 

“At the 1972 Tokyo Motor Show the most anticipated race car in Japan was unveiled at the Nissan stand. The Hakosuka Skyline GT-R was the most beloved touring car in the country, but its time was coming to an end. Nissan was unveiling the next generation of Skyline GT-R, the Kenmeri, and was so confident of its ability to continue the legacy that it debuted the car in race guise and gold Kobe Seiko 8-spoke wheels. Except, it never raced. The “73” on the side indicated the year the Kenmeri GT-R was supposed to storm the track. Before it could, though, the 1973 oil crisis happened and Nissan canceled plans to race it.”

As always a clean build, super nice paint job and you did an excellent job applying those decals.
