A road car for a change! I intended to go for a slight road racer look for this, kind of like a GT3 RS, with the cage and Nitrous bottle, but still on treaded tyres and without any graphics, just a nice paint job. I wanted something a bit special and when I saw PS-46 Iridescent Purple Green the decision was made. It’s not too far of Nissan’s own ChromaFlair Mystic Green so somewhat appropriate.
I bought, painted and stickered this body last summer but abandoned the project as it wasn’t very interesting to look at compared to all the race and rally cars I’ve been doing. I’ve done bits and bobs on it this year and it was so close to finished that I finally made the push to get it done.
As most of this was done a year ago it’s missing some of the details I now do, matt window frames etc. I did add some more bits recently though like the rear heated screen and silver sections in the cockpit. I also removed the rear light stickers and painted the buckets and LEDs instead. For the grille badge I stuck it to a bit of Lexan then cut it out before mounting it on the mesh.
The chassis is of my TT-02D Type S, so it's pretty close to the 58605 model I've listed it under, unlike most of my creations which are more of a mash up. Finally the reflection of the Tamiya box on the driver door of the first pic is unintentional - just a happy accident!
