Calling this one done: Tamiya's Nissan Skyline 2000 GT-R Hardtop inspired by the car Paul Walker drove in Fast Five. Though it had limited screen time, I feel like it is the best looking Japanese car to make it on screen in the series. It has a wired engine, wood grain interior trim, BMF exterior trim, flocked interior, and addition of Fujimi Watanabe wheels. I could have started with the Tamiya Street Custom kit, but I liked the deep offset of the Fujimi wheels and I had both on hand. The wheels were painted with Alclad II Jet Exhaust for the bronze look, everything else was done in acrylic paint. The body is craft paint from the dollar store, thinned and shot through an airbrush with AK Interactive Ultra Gloss.
Here's Dom's 70' Charger from the movie Fast Five. Built for the Fast and Furious tribute build to go along side Brian's 72' Skyline also from Fast Five. Built as close as I can to the one seen in the movie. It started out as a Revell 69' Charger, the w.i.p is here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=87233 if anyone is interested in seeing the building of it. The grille was made from scratch with styrene sheets layer over one another then sanded down to be mostly accurate. The wheels were modeled by me and printed by Shapeways. Most of the interior was also made from scratch covered with heat and air duct tape for the aluminum look. I'll try to get better pics of the interior a little later. Thank you for looking!
Here is a tribute car made to honor the late Paul Walker. It's a 72' Skyline drivin by him during Fast Five. It may not be the best known car but it's one I really liked as soon as I saw it. This was also made for the Fast and Furious tribute build over in the community builds section. Ride in Peace Paul Walker, this one's for you. Thanks for looking everyone!
