Description

 

Summary:

Description: Tamiya Nissan R34 Skyline

Kit #: 24258

Scale: 1/24                             


 

The Build:

Being a Tamiya kit, the parts are cleanly molded and devoid of flash. All parts were removed with Gundam Planet Model Nippers (GodHand) and cleaned up with a new X-Acto blade.

 

 

Additional clean up was done with Alpha Abrasives synthetic sandpaper. Micro mesh was used to remove mold seams.

The model was assembled with CA (Bob Smith), Tamiya Extra Thin, and Micro Scale Clear glues.


 

Color and Markings:

The model was primed with Stynylrez and shot “Bayside Blue “ by Gravity Colors with an H&S Infinity. MRP was used for the interior parts.

 

 

The model was then shot with 2k Clear by Gravity that was lightly sanded and buffed out after curing for four days.


 

Decals and Final Finish:

The kits decals were used and responded well to Micro-Sol and –Set. Solvaset was used to settle the decals on the carbon fiber surfaces. To blend in the final finish, the model was buffed and polished out with Gravity Colors polishing compounds.
