1995 Toyota Supra TOM’s JGTC undercover (cannonball ruse)

Here is my revised Cannonball Run Reuse build. Started with my C5R that snowballed and the time was not there to finish it as I wanted to so one month ago I switched to this.

Tamiya TOM’s Castrol JGTC Toyota Supra from the 1995 season where it was street derived cars competing.

This is one of the most iconic Japanese racing cars in modern time thanks to games as Gran Turismo 2, where the Supra was one of the must have cars in the game.

The 1995 TOM’s Castrol Supra got dragged out of storage, sprayed in an more discrete color with some minor modifications and a added extra seat for the co driver. If you look closely you can still se hints of its previous life as well as the wear and tear of 26 years of use and neglect.

And I broke my own record and finished it in 33 days from idea to Finnish! 

 Custom wing made from the original wing sides and a Porsche GT2 “wide” wing blade.

Period correct side mirrors.

Typical JDM Mufler.

C5R difusor.

Extra seat with PE seat bases for both seats. 

PE seat belts.

And again, thanks to everyone at the forum for al the kind words and encouragements!

Awesome build Anton! Now I know why the C5R truck build stalled.  Very crisp details, paint and interior, it all looks top shelf. I assume there is a WIP for this, I will have look… Thanks for sharing. 
Cheers, Steve

Thanks Steve! Yes I had to get something finished and I knew I couldn’t get the truck done in time. I will get back to it soon though 😉 the WIP is in the cannonball thread 🙂thanks friend!

As said elsewhere Anton, you've done a great job here - I think it looks excellent and fits the brief perfectly. You're making me wish I hadn't made my entry more complicated by dropping a different body onto the chassis of mine.......

Looks right at home with the Tsukuba background too!

Thanks m8, have enjoyed following your build as well! Thanks for the kind words! I know the feeling, my Silverado got way to complicated but very interesting.
But hey! You still need to push the last stretch and it’s not to late to switch back the body, if it would make you more interested in it, there is still time!!

Awesome turn out on the Supra and well thought out. I'm impressed at how you pulled off all the great details in such a short period of time. 

One of the great things about the Cannonball Run Community Build is the time frame allowed to build one model. (about eleven months)... and even more time to plan the project.  The fact is you didn't need that much time. 😄 I could use a bit of your motivation for sure...😁

I would love to see you join the next Cannonball Run with us and I sure hope you will continue on the truck and get it finished up too.

Thanks allot Anthony! I really wanted the history of the original car to show through and it was the same plan for the Silverado so it got implemented on the Supra. I like the CBR and this was not my last. 😆
I usually work better with some pressure and a tight deadline, as long as I know I can make it, makes me motivated!😁

I will try to, only thing is that my brain get so activated in the subject so it takes focus from allot else. We will se how I do. 😎 

the truck will get finished but I might do some build in between. 
 

Again, thanks for all your inputs and I really enjoy the atmosphere we had in this years CBR!

Both models look great.  The colors looks nice on both but I like the darker one with the murdered out wheels a little better.  Great looking pair.

Thanks! I Also prefer the dark one, it’s more up my alley but they are built with two different intentions 🙂 The yellow one is a tribute build where the original was that type of yellow, btw might be the only yellow car I make in a looong while. Thanks Again!
