Mitchell's GTR R34
#1
Time to build my first body. I've chosen Xanavi Nismo GTR R34 Z-Tune (Tamiya #51246).

Pre-cut and masked body right after first PS-18 (metallic purple) layer:

After another few layers of PS-18:

After backing it up with PS-5 (black):

Rear wing and mirrors were painted  first with PS-5, next with PS-18, and finally with TS-13 (clear). Light buckets were painted manually using X-18 (semi gloss black):

I've sprayed body with 9 layers of PS-18 and 5 layers of PS-5. Wing and mirrors were sprayed with  2 layers of PS-5, 3-4 layers of PS-18 and 2 layers of TS-13.
Used 2 cans of PS-18 and  1 can of PS-5 and a bit of TS-13 & X-18 to do it.

Stay tuned!

Next part of work has been done. I've trimmed front of the body, mounted grilles made of aluminium and mounted front light buckets:  [Image: c60397dc0a265df5.png]

The hardest part was to cut out  the hood air intake as lexan was extremely hard here. Finally inlets  were smoothed using a small file:

Rear lights with decals & buckets mounted, rear wing mounted:

Stay Z-tuned ;)

Yes, I'm gonna mount Team Tetsujin TT-7313 LED kit, self-made roll cage, aluminium exhaust pipe and other stuff.
I'll update topic with new photos soon, as some of that already has been done.
