Hi all, i've just finish building my TT01 Nissan Gt-r. I love the design of this car because of its angular and unique design. Anyways, the paint scheme... I have been going thru a lot of paint scheme ideas and i finally chose this design. The theme is NIKE!! One day, i was looking at my shoes and i said to myself, why not?? I quickly drew out rough sketches, did some carefully planning and hope for the best. Pretty tricky because this design is very Experimental... The paint finish is mixed. There are flat and gloss finish on the bodywork, represents suede materials and leather.. I have also added a few accessories, a rally driver cockpit set for more realism, front and rear disc brakes (painted met. grey, original chrome to bling!! for me), an intercooler and also all wheels have been offset 2mm, just to make it really flush with exterior body. I'm pretty happy about the result, Hope you guys would like it. JUST DO IT.. by nike

This is an amazing job! The livery makes the car come out perfectly and it is so nice with the mix of shiny and matt. And all the details like interior and wheels/tires completely finish it off. Lovely, YOU DID IT !
