S13 Silvia with Bodykit

5 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

As the weathers stopping me from doing any spraying I thought I'd make a start on this one - it's the recent Aoshima release with engine. It's slightly disappointing as it's only a 1/2 engine but what there is is nicely detailed and should look ok. So far I've roughed out the bodykit with plastic sheet & Tamiya epoxy putty -the front will need lot more work but the general shape is there.

Ahhhhh, I've always like those 240's........but they've all but disappeared here in the states!

I almost bought one new ('89?) but the price was a little rich for my blood back then............around $15,000 or so! :shock:

Keep us posted on this one!

Just a quick update on where I am with the front bumper. It's taking a bit more time than I anticipated as it's fairly complicated - nearly there - just needs some final filling & sanding.

Hope you all had a good Xmas - thanks for looking

That looks pretty good, what color are you going by??

Ive also noticed that many of you guys her dont like spraying indoors??

i do all my spraying indoors, all you need is something to cover the model

like a box wich you cut out two sides from, works fine.

and you sleep soOOo good the upcoming night!

there seem to be plenty more series 1 240 (aka silvia for japan home market) out on the west coast than the series 2 (i forget the "r" designation), or at least i seem to see more earlier ones than later (and i have a 96 1:1 so i tend to notice them when they go by).

nice body kit there. im currently finishing up a series 2 garage defender that required a lot of fiddling with the body kit, filling and reshaping. will post when together
