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. And finally LB's message that could change so much as we enter a new year. 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. Shaun
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
so this will be my first 1/24 car kit, done a few 1/12 bikes and of course lots of gundam and scifi stuff. the theme will be gundam, neo zeon, sazabi with the decals. so opened the kit today and really surprised how small it is, i think its due to not openning up a 1/24 car kit since i was a child. oh well it is what it is, ive also got the hobby design liberty walk upgrade kit and extra wheels and extra tyres. the decals are hologram and il just use a few of them. ive seen some photos of the finished kit and isnt as slammed as id like so may try and mock up and see if i can get it really low. heres the pics.
