Tamiya Nissan GTR ..... something different for me

Recommended Posts

I generally build big body GM lowrider/lowrod type of stuff, Impalas, Cadillacs etc. I have decided to try something TOTALLY different.

I started with a Tamiya GTR kit, then aquired a Vorsteiner Ventross upgrade set, which includes the front bumper, rear diffuser and etc. I then got a Hobby Designs open door "grade-up" kit. Which includes the headliner, door jambs, door skins (which are too small, and in need of much work) as well as inner door panels. This will be slow going as I work out of town for 2 weeks, then am home for 2 weeks. I will update as I go.

sorry for the horrible photo quality....my Rebel battery is charging, so I used the iphone

Looking cool so far. What all comes in the VV kit besides the grille and diffuser? Got any photos of the diffuser? How much does the VV kit cost? Lastly, how is the quality?

I'll be watching this build closely.

quality is good, the kid includes, the exhaust tips, front bumper, rear "difuser" and a small etch tree, with vents etc for the front bumper. I believe it cost around 35.00 including shipping from japan.

I will put up a picture of the whole VV kit tomorow when I return home.
