  1. As another build finishes another must start. This time I will be building 2 of Aoshimas Nissan GT-Rs, one as a stock anyman car and one of the new Liberty Walk version cars. So on to the build and the 2 cars i am talking about. As you can see these 2 have the similarities but also have the same amount of differences. So starting with the standard car. It is the 2014 spec pure edition. I did think of trying to spec this car into the nismo 17 spec but the front bumper was a little too much work to make it look good. This car will hopefully have a showroom look to it with a nice spec'd interior and painted with Xirallic Crystal White on the exterior. Rather conveniently it comes with a VR38DETT engine which will most likely end up in the other car. Now on to the LB car. This is the new release from Aoshima classed as version 1 so possibly there may be more to come in the future. Me being me I am not going to be building this out of the box, as you will notice in the picture I will be adding a swan neck rear wing and possible some rocket bunny wheels (not pictured) but overall I am just excited to be able to build an LB GT-R for under £50. Obviously with this being a specialist car the interior will be painted with a high sort of spec finish, the exterior will be using the kit decals and also be painted with LB zero fighter grey and probably top coated with a flat clear or semi gloss clear. The decals for the LB car are very nice and it's also great that they include different colours of the same decals to give the option of having light or dark paint. These are the kit rims which are very nice and are 2 peice per corner. Also they have been pre painted in black. Not sire if I have already mentioned it but these 2 kits are basically the same kit just reboxed with extra parts. Fro. What I can see these are the extra parts for the LB car. So that being said the body shells are exactly the same, the even have the same code stamp in the inside. So as these should be 2 pretty standard straight forward builds I got to sticking bits on. Front and rear bumpers are on the pure car with the bonnet only placed on. Now this is where the differences start. The front bumpers are now glued to both cars and as you can see are quite substantially different in terms of complexity. Pure car left, LB right. Mocking up the arches for the LB car. Front and rear arches mocked. Also the pure car in underneath to show the visual difference. That's it for now. More probably tomorrow Thanks for looking Shaun
