Wow! I like it, well done! Clean work.

Thanks Chris. Only ever done one car before so pretty steep learning curve with the flocking and getting rid of the orange peel. Didn't get any at all on the grey paint but the clear coat ended up like a golf ball. 3 hours and 3 grades of polish later I was happy.

Geez... you really are getting good. At first glance I thought "why did someone post a pic of them parking their car at a modelling show...?"

literally fooled me for a couple of seconds. Wow.

Of course... how high a compliment that is really depends on how easy you think it is to fool me... ;)

Not going there Greg! Thanks for the wrap though! The dust here is obvious and you can understand what you need to contend with when painting a model. When Kez came to visit he couldn't believe the dust. I might take better pics in the spray booth later in the week.

This is what I call a sweet result Peter. ;)
Once again, your attention to detail takes my breath away. !

Very well done my friend................again. !!!

Not bad Peter, looks good! The tires are to clean for my liking but still looks good. Oh ...and you put the bloody steering wheel on the wrong side! :)

I take it that the windshield water squirters work too. ?
Just bloody amazing Peter. I love your work.
Top Shelf. ! ;)
The surface finish, from what you have allowed us to see is blemish free, devoid of any of that dreaded 'orange peel effect', making it a real stunner. ;)

Great build Peter. This vehicle was sold in the US as the "Pathfinder", and was the first SUV I owned. Remains one of my favorites, just a great body style IMHO. Great to see it in model form

Thank you Chris, James and Kerry. Got another car to do next, either a Lamborghini or an ancient Porsche.

Alec K, it was sold here as a Pathfinder as well but not with a Navara diesel. Mine was a grey import, literally a Pathfinder with a Navara Diesel engine. For what it was it went very well and convinced me not to join the Toyota bandwagon but to buy a Nissan Patrol which I still have 15 years later. So happy I did.

You could do some KC-light teaching Peter. Very well done!

Alec K
Got it, thanks for the info. Diesel for where I live is an iffy proposition during winter, so maybe that's why I never saw one. My suv after this one was another Pathfinder. Then I went to Toyota :D

Looking forward to your next build

You won't have to wait long Alec. It will be another car.
