Nissan GT-R ‘Z-Tune’
Well here’s a thing – not a race-car, not an ‘exotic’, not even a NASCAR, just a VERY fast limited edition (only 20 units (re)built) of one of the greatest cars you’ve never heard of !
Not going to go in to the history of Nissan’s GT-R series it’s too long and too complicated, however I can tell you about the Tamiya kit:
It’s incredible. Like the 911 GT1 from a couple of weeks ago, it falls together with very little input from me. All I did was follow the construction & paint instructions, added Tamiya’s ‘Detail-Up’ set (a first for me and HIGHLY recommended) and that was pretty much it.
Yes the paint-scheme is all me – I wanted something to soften the brutish lines of the bodyshell, and I wanted to try using ‘Pearl’ paints – again a first. I love Tamiya rattle-cans, always work for me, and no exception this time.
This is now sitting on my daughters make-up table, and even tho’ she’s well grown-out of her ‘pink ‘n girlie’ phase she loves it and scolds any of her friends who make any move toward it !
Next (car) project is already n the bench. Have a great Christmas and New Year everyone, see you in 2018.
