What paint did you use for the body? Also which other paints are needed? I'm planning to buy this kit and want to make sure I have all the paints too the same time.
10. June 2020, 21:47
Marco Preto
Jimmy, the Nismo strut bar was scratch built using plastic card and tube. The brake lines and ignition loom were also added using thin wire. Everything else are the kit parts. If I remember correctly, I used the body from a JGTC R32 Skyline, that has the 2 air vents in the front bumper.
The body color is the Tamiya TS that is recommended in the instructions (I will have to check on my notes which code it is), overcoated with gloss varnish.

Thank you for your kind comments! This build has been somewhat troublesome! I'm planning in completing all panel line washes and just add some fuel and exhaust stains to complete it. I made a few video clips showing how I solved some silvering that appeared on the old kit decals and I plan to edit into a simple tutorial video. I'll share it here when I manage to edit it all together.

How did you airbrush it?
24. April, 10:36
Marco Preto
Treehugger, sorry I am not sure I understand your question!
I airbrushed the base colours using my trusty old CR Revelution airbrush (with 0.5mm nozzle). Afterwards, subtle effects were applied using oils and enamels (using a brush). Watercolour pencils were also used to highlight some edges.
If you are interested I can check what colours were used and I hope to have answered your question.
