Hi guys, this is my newly built Nissan R91CP. I like this model because tamiya made very nice details to the body. Comes standard with cockpit, wing, mirrors, light buckets and realistic wheels. Building the chassis is very easy and simple. The body is a bit of a challenge to build. 3 colors and no maskings/overspray film were included. Tamiya had not come up with a overspray film back then. So need to fabricate them by my own. The colors i used are 'bright red ps34'and' brilliant blue ps30'. the original ps4 blue is a bit too dark for my liking. Also i did some web research for the r91cp to find the closest color looks more like brilliant blue or calsonic blue. Its bright!! I have also added door shut lines and wheel details too. Basically a very stock out of the box car with careful work and time put into.

Wow very nice model. I thought the first pic was of the real car this is my favorite tamiya kit, you've done a great job. I painted my first kit in the ps4 but may try the ps30 on my next kit as it does look closer to the original. These pics are getting saved to my picture collection!

You've done a top job on that one, seen many of these just built, and not taken care of the finer details that this car needs. If only every kit was like this.
