Nissan R35 GT-R Spec V

The Kit

This kit is manufactured by Aoshima, a very well known company for the car kits they make. This kit is a 2008 tool but under a new parts release including new exhaust tips and a few parts of the interior including the back of the seats. The color of the decals was very good even though the transparent part of it had a yellowish look. Some of the parts were already painted such as the chrome of the exhaust tips and the wheels. The kit includes a very detailed engine. Overall it’s a very good and detailed kit that I would definitely suggest to those who seek for good Nissan GTR R35 kit.

 Nissan R35 The Build

Building this kit is fun but there are some stages that you really have to think a lot before you proceed because sometimes there is no turning back. I used Artic Blue 71.071 from Vallejo Model Air Metallic series for the main body. NATO Black 71.251 for the interior and the plastic pieces of the bumpers. I applied Vallejo Decal Medium 73.212 in order to have more control over the decals. This solution softens the decals making the application of them to any curve or engraved line feasible. Using super glue for chrome parts helped move a lot faster than scratching the piece to remove chrome and add cement.

This playlist contains 4 videos from start to finish of this model kit.

 

Next time I will buy and build another Nissan R35 kit I will definitely use aftermarket products. Totally a recommended kit.
