Better late then never. For the 50th anniversary of the GT-R here’s my first gen Nissan GT-R build. The 21st of February 1969 was the release of the first Nissan GT-R and it was a very successful racing car. Here’s my street version. Aoshima kit with Aoshima Hayashi wheels, painted Tamiya pearl blue TS-58.
Not usually my thing to 'Pimp' a street car, but just couldn't help m'self... Aoshima kit, not a straightforward build but pretty good. Tamiya TS44 Light Gunmetal overall, A Pillars, skirts & air dams all Tamiya enamel (standard) Gunmetal. Decals plucked from an unsuspecting Revell Mitsubishi Eclipse. Wheels are after-market Aoshima's - Rays 19" GT-C's. As ever thanks for taking the time to look, all comments, abuse and questions are welcome
This build will hopefully take less than 10 years. Can’t promise though. ? Anyway….so after building that…lets call it “challenging” ABC Dino kit, I decided I needed to build something that actually fit right, didn’t have to be re-worked, and had plenty of reference material to build properly. So, old, well-fitting and nicely designed, trouble free Tamiya kit seemed like a good start, right? Wanted something simple. Picked up this R32 kit on eBay the other day - always liked these Skylines, my brother had one back in the 90’s, and I currently am seriously considering bringing one to
Been using these forums as a resource for about 2 years now and recently joined. Awesome community!! Here's my first under glass post, go easy, haha! A few pics of an Aoshima Nissan GT-R I finished a few months back. First Aoshima kit too. It's a bit orange peely and I burned through the paint on some edges while wet sanding...probably could have used a coat or 2 more of clear but it had been on the bench for a while and I was ready to move onto the next project.
