Highly detailed, very authentic model of the iconic Nissan Hardbody
October 8, 2017
Likely because this is the first model I have built decades, I found this kit to be both amazing and frustrating at the same time. The quality of the kit is great. The body lines on the exterior are crisp and there is a surprising amount of detail on even the smallest of pieces. That level of detail continues over to the decal sheet which gives you the option of three or four the different graphics packages that Nissan offered on this truck across the years. It went together generally well, but there were a great many small, fiddly pieces I had to make a few modifications to make everything fit just right. As a novice builder, this kit was probably more advanced than I needed and I would not recommend it to children or people looking for a quick, simple build. That said, now that it's done it looks great on the shelf!
