Nissan R390 GT1

The next build of of the workbench is this. I decided to chop the front off of it and scratch built some of the front end details. Done a bit of engine wiring and I used a bit of artistic license so its probably not too accurate but I had fun :)

That is very nice, indeed. I really love this car and will someday build this kit. Your paint and decal work look spectacular. I like the front end work you've done though I'll never understand the modeler's impulse some of you have to make more work for yourselves!

I love the Nissan racers and this one is no exception. One of my favs to use in the racing video games lol. Anyhow, your build is so clean and intricate my goodness. Hats off to you, smashing.

Very nice build! Like the front end exposed idea. I have 3 of these in the stash, and may use that on one of the builds.

Thanks for the great comments guys, I'm glad you like it cos I really enjoyed building it.

Hi Dave, you can get nice photoetch and carbon for the kit but this one was detailed purely from the spares box. Thought I'd try not spending shed loads for a change.

Excellent build. I'd say the emphasis is on the "art" in artistic license.
