R30 Skyline 4door

Recommended Posts

Haven't post much in a while. But I have been building at a turtles pace.

Had some stuff going on in life, but it's all good now.

This one took me a bit longer than anticipated, but it's done now.

Kit: Tamiya

Wheels: Aoshima SSR MKIII painted with Tamiya bright orange

Paint: Testors once coat white lighting and Tamiya gunmetal.

Suspension: lowered and cambered

Interior: Tamiya rubber black and German gray.

Mods: cat back straight pipe exhaust, cambered rear axles, bmf trim and cut out side windows.

I'll take pics of the interior and chassis later.

Thanks for looking

Cool. I like those Skylines that you just have to say "is this really a Skyline?"...so plain Jane.

The orange wheel centers contrast great with the silver paint. Nice looking model.

Thanks guys.

Eric, it's true about it "being plane jane" to go from the hakosuka and kenmeri skylines to this boxy body style was a daring attempt to reignite the gtr flame. Although it didn't wear the gtr badge, it still did good in the race circuit with its turbo 4banger.
