I am doing this one for a second build off on Scale Aveune, and keeping them of 2012 model year cars and kit release's, so I am going build Aoshima's recent release of the 2012 Nissan R35 GTR kit, I love GTR's and the R35. I already have the paint and the wheels all pick out, but first let me share a pic of what I am thinking about doing, not sure if I am set on it yet

I am going to do a spoon test to see what color of primer I am going to use, I normally use white for blue most of the time, but I have no idea with this color yet.

I had the paint mixed up for me, it is a color choice for the GTR R35

Nice work! Mine is the Tamiya kit, which I chose not to add any PE stuff or CF decals. Not liking the colors available from the factory, I picked this Lexus color. I'll look forward to following this thread.

I decided to lower the suspension, with it having working suspension, it made easy, here is the stock ride height
