Hi everyone,

moving onto my next project I'm going to have a crack at the GTR long tail version from Aoshima. I'm ordering the full carbon decal set from S27 and will also have a photo etch set too. I'll also try to add as much in the way of wiring and hoses in the interior and the engine bay. Luckily I have heaps of reference photos and a couple of great inspirational builds from Sam01Contact and Dieteufel to help me along the way.

As for livery wise, I'm actually going to stick with the test version. Maybe later on I'll do another with the Lark livery as that's my favorite. I've only just started so all I've done is start preparing the body by scribing out the panel lines and sand any mold lines away. Engine block has also had a coat of aluminium.

Small update, got some more of the engine detail done. My Studio 27 CF decal set should arrive next week so I can then get stuck into the engine bay tub.

Sooooooo

I had an issue with the clear coat reacting with the base coat and I had to strip back to the start...

But I got to choose a new livery - Purpose Fuji 1000 from 1999.

Also I've finished off detailing the engine bay, here's a few pics of the progress.

So this one is back on my bench. I reckon I'm about 90% there, the last tricky bit will be assembling the doors in the open position.
