Aoshima Liberty Walk Nissan GT-R

Build notes: Because the kit also includes the non-Liberty-Walk suspension parts, I was able to use those instead, making the car's stance look normal. I also swapped the stretched/pulled tyres for some normal ones and painted the black wheels silver. All this greatly improves the look of the car (for my taste) - and I have come to really love the result. Other additions to the kit are the Hobby Design Photo Etch kit, some seatbelt retainers, the rear number plate and a small amount of carbon fibre decal. I've also intentionally omitted some of the less desirable Liberty Walk decals. Painted in Tamiya TS-52 Candy Lime Green and clearcoated with Tamiya TS-13 Gloss. Quite possibly the best set of photos I've taken of any build. Built over the space of 12 days.

Very clean build. Certainly gets your attention painted the TS-52, cant say ive seen one of these kits painted that color. Amazing how different those wheels look painted silver, compared to usual black.

Well done.

Luke is right, that color Instantly grabs your eye.  Great looking model.  There is just enough black to break up all that green.  Fantastic looking eye candy.

Beautiful looking finishes and the color is a real attention getter. I agree with you on the wheel color. Never understood having a great looking set of wheels on a car and then paint them black so you can't see any of the wheel details.
