Nissan Skylie 2000 GT-X

Japanese car culture has it's own distinct style for older domestic cars called "shakotan" which apparently translates as "low ride height" and I must admit I'm partial to it !. This is a recent Aoshima release based on a car in the "shakotan boogie" manga comic. It's a pretty basic ex-motorised kit with a distinct lack of chrome parts (i.e. none) and some fairly interesting methods of construction for the interior - the dash & door panels glue to the body!.
