Right so this is 1 half of my twin build GT-R thread. Normally I'd post them both together but the LB version came together so much faster, mainly due to the paint finish. 

 

My opinions of the kit are very high, it just fell together most of the way, the only tricky bit was basically at the start of the build when adding the wide body kit. There are no alignment holes or marks so you have to be pretty precise before gluing, that being said it wasn't too hard compared with other wide bodykit models. One major plus are the window masks as for the first time the kit supplied window masks didn't leak any paint under them. Also it was a very nice touch to have 2 piece rims where the whole centre section is separate from the outer rim 

 

Now for some tech specs. 

 

Paints used were:

Halfords primer for all parts

Zero paints LB zero fighter grey 

Zero paint gulf orange. 

Tamiya flat clear. 

Various shades of alclad.

 

Bits added: 

VR38DETT engine from the Aoshima r35 pure model. 

Various extra decals from aventador LB sheet. 

 

So now on to the final result. 

 

This is the picture I left on the build thread but I actually quite like it so it's being added to this thread also.

Thanks for looking and to all those who did and hopefully continue to contribute the the build thread. 

 

Have a great end to this year and start to the next.
