The tiny Vitz. This was a present to my wife (gf at the time!) as a replica of her real car.
It has various modifications including new wheels & tires, brakes, stance, bodykit and rear spoiler.
It was sprayed in the original Toyota 8K8 metallic blue and 2K clear
(mind the aerial! )
and the interior, according to the 1:1
After that I continued my Skyline collection, first with the amazing (in real life) Tamiya R34 GT-R Z-tune!
Sprayed in Tamiya TS-17 silver and TS-13 clear.
Then came the beast, the Tamiya R35 GT-R!
Sprayed in Nissan QX1 Ivory pearl and 2K clear.
And my latest build (in 2012), the Tamiya Skyline R33 GT-R!
Sprayed in Nissan AH3 Red pearl metallic and 2K clear.
This kit comes without engine and I installed an RB26 from the Tamiya R32 kit. The engine bay is scratch-built.

Again, here's the interior
This Skyline was also featured onto the 3rd edition of the Racecraft magazine, where it received a full 14-page feature which I was very happy about
Before building these, I have done other Japanese cars but they are nowhere near the finish/detail of my latest 4 cars (above).
You can see them in the link below, where you can also see the above cars during construction, step by step.
The above pictures were taken onto a garage background diorama I made to make the cars look more realistic when pictured.
As I've said in my introduction, I've been off the modelling table for the last 19 months but shall start building again very soon
Thanks for looking and see you all at the club.
