Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R "Nur"
This is the model which got me started back into building these kind of models. It also happened to be one of my favourite cars which was an added bonus.
The base kit for this model is the Tamiya Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-Spec II. An option in the Spec II kit from Tamiya, is to build it as the limited edition "Nur" model of the GT-R. There is also the instructions to mix Tamiya's paints to create Millennium Jade which was used on this edition. To this model, I also added a cast resin Nismo body kit and etched drilled disc's with cast calipers from Scale Auto Style were added. The body colour is Nissan's Silica Breath Metallic mixed by the local paint factors. Other details added include, scratch-built caliper mounts, brake and fuel lines underneath, personalised plates, seatbelt webbing and custom floor mats.
This was the first plastic model kit that I had built in quite a few years on the model railway scene and I was pleased with the result. As I had enjoyed this build, the bug was re-instated for building these type of kits and I have continued with the work.
