Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R Nur

This was the model which got me started back into this hobby after fifteen plus years on the model railway scene and I was getting disheartened with the hobby. It all started whilst browsing on EBay one day, and I saw this kit for sale on it. This is one of my favourite cars so I brought it and on futher browsing, I found that someone did a cast resin bodykit and etched disc brakes for it which were purchased too. The bait was there and I was hooked again.

With this kit being the Spec II version of the GT-R, there was the added option in the kit to make the limited edition "Nur" of which 2000 were made by Nissan towards the end of the R34's production.

To start with, I was going to only add the cast bodykit and etched disc to this model. But after looking at some websites, I decided to add some extra details to the model. The body is basically straight forwards and out of the box, with the additions of the body kit which included the side skirts, front and rear bumpers, and a replacement bonnet. To the chassis, the extra details that I added includes mountings for the cast brake callipers, etched drilled disc's, fuel and brake lines. The car was painted with Nissan's "Silica Breath Metallic" which was mixed up at a local paint factors. The large cooling vents in the front bumper have drilled panels in them, which were only molded to simulate them. So out with the pin vice and a small drill. The result, sore fingers and two drilled vent panels. I finished off the body with a set of personalised plates.

To the interior, I painted the seats and panels in a two tone scheme of dark and light grey. The seats had opening for the full harness belts to sit through, these were drilled out as they were solid plastic. Stock seatbelt webbing was added to the front and rear seats but I did not have any buckles for them. The interior was also finished off with custom floormats and a tax disc in the windscreen.

From this point on, my models railway stock was packed away until I feel the time is right again for it. And you can see the result of rediscovering this hobby again from the rest of my gallery.
