Just curious if the Aoshima Shakotan Boogie KPGC10 Skyline actually comes with some Sakura/Yayoi style wheels?

Description just says "Aero "tuner" parts are included, with deep chrome rims and super-fat, super-low-profile tires." :?

Tamiya Snap-loc Honda City I’ve just completed, pretty much as it came but lowered lots and Advan A3A rims with stretched tyres squeezed in under the arches. Paint is Tamiya TS-18 metallic red and TS-13 clear. An enjoyable build of a clean, simple kit.

Just had a nice box full of kits turn up today, selection of Doyusha Nostalgic Hero (good shells, shame about the interiors and wheels and tyres) and an Aoshima 1978 Toyota MarkII Grande, basically a 2dr hardtop version of the Cressida. Looks to be an excellent kit with some nice extras and good detail, aside from lack of an engine.

That's one hot City. Now if only someone could build that in real life :)

Ditto! Nice Honda City!

Can you tell me something about the build up of this model?
Snap-loc means no glue required? A snap together kit?
Did you spray paint the body? How about the trim around the windows and the emblems - are they brushed on (steady hands required)? And, what do you use for mirror reflectors?

I haven't built a model in over 30 years, but I'd like to put a few together. Any helpful advice?

My concerns are 1) painting and 2) glueing

Painting - spraying vs brushing. Some guys I've talked to still brush on their paint, but I think I prefer spraying. Any points of view on this topic?

Glue - what is the glue of choice these days? Super glue? Model glue from a tube, or the more liquid bottled stuff?

If you want to reply, PM me so we don't get too off topic on this thread! :wink: Unles you don't mind getting a little off topic - after all the tips might be helpful for everyone.

I’ll answer that as succinctly as I can later on, but if someone wants to step in and provide some input please feel free. This is as Tamiya intended it, bless its spindly little wheels and tyres.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I really enjoyed making this and it gave me a buzz seeing it finished, it worked out pretty much exactly as I’d imagined. I’d love to be able to do the same kind of thing to JNC’s at 1:1, but I’d need a lot more space, time and money!

If one of them is the Bluebird SSS Coupe, I will trade you almost anythingI have for it. 8)

You guys make me sick [in a good way] haha.

How do you go about doing the whole lower-and-bigger/different wheels thing? Ive got a Tamiya Isuzu PIazza kit upstairs ive started building, and first thing im noticing is the lack of detail compared to the kits you guys have.

Also, what are you painting them in? I tried VHT Gloss Nu-Cast [its made for ally heads and shit] but it turned out pretty dull.
