This model comes to me through the creative hands of TC’s own Steve Collins aka Scollins, he built this gorgeous chassis to fit my Kyosho Nostalgia series 1/9 scale body. Steve used a Top Force rere kit to bash together a truly stock looking chassis. It looks as though it came from tamiya this way. Steve basically took my body and presented me with a complete ready to paint kit. He even cut the body for me (perfectly I might add) He sat the beauty down on a set of HPI wheels and tires, a perfect fit for the fender flares.
Now to the story or excuse to as why it has taken me sooo long to paint this gem. The first part was that I was afraid to do a crappy job and not do the chassis justice…And second I hate the way white looks on lexan shells. I love the original paint scheme on the skyline so I was not real eager to go with a different color…Now I have to send props out to tc member and all around great guy Jun aka Cardesigner. Just as I was looking at alternative paint colors, Jun posted his PIAA Porsche. And he also was nice enough to give up the secret to how to get a great looking opaque white paint job on lexan shells. First spray white then bright silver, then silver, and lastly black.. It really works great………..
I had a little difficulty with the decals but I am very pleased with the overall feel and look of the car. This is a really an awesome car………………………
I look forward to hearing what you guys think, this really is a special car to me.
