Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II Sportscar

The Nissan Skyline GT-R (R32), released in 1989, was developed as a base machine for Group-A races. Taking full advantage of its powerful 2.6l, 6-cylinder, twin turbo engine, it was equipped with a 4WD system. Originally designated as R32, the car was termed R33 in 1995 and R34 in 1999. In October 2000, the Skyline underwent minor changes such as the addition of large rear brakes to upgrade performance further. This new evolution was called the V-spec II. The most drastic alteration was the replacement of the aluminum hood with a new carbon hood featuring a NACA duct. The carbon pattern of the hood would stand out even when painted the same color as the car body. Both inside and outside surfaces of the hood were designed using RTM, a new construction method yeilding smooth surfaces. The V-spec II also features the previous improvements of the V-spec: front/rear diffusers and 18-inch tires, brake discs with Brembo calipers, and a 6-speed transmission. In February 2002, Nissan released a limited edition car called "Nur", named after the Nurburgring circuit, and equipped with an N1 racing specification engine. Combining the impressive specifications of both the V-spec II and the M-spec, 1000 units of the "Nur" were produced in all. Marketed as the last GT-R to equip a straight 6 engine, all 1000 were sold-out in one day, attesting to its incredible popularity. The new 2000 gas regulation forced Nissan to end production of the GT-r in August 2002, however the glory of this ultimate sports car lives on.

"Ride to Drive"
This is my first Tamiya model that I have built. For me there is more pros than cons. The cons are for me, is I wished they would have added a moveable front hood and the other half of the engine, so that there was a chance for more details. Now for the pros: there was very very little slag or lines from the molds, the parts fitted like they were suppose to. I did not have too adjust or modify any of the parts. Wish all of the manufacturers would use the way these tires are manufactured too be mounted. The tires rubber really felt like real tires rubber. The movement of the front axles are great. They move easily left or right without feeling like they are bounded. Rest of the manufacturers should take hint from this model. Enjoy as much as I did.

"The more I got into the kit, the less I liked it"
At first the kit appeared great. Being my first Tamiya kit I wasn't sure what to expect. In the end, the lack of an engine, over complicated directions, and large amount of parts which needed to be modified to fit, I do not like this kit. Probably wont buy any Tamiya kits again. Ill stick with Revell. Not to mention even though Hobbylinc has the best price, this kit is actually quite pricey!

"Pretty good model"

This is pretty good model from Tamiya. The attention to details and quality is very nice. I wish they made this model with more detailed engine and some moving parts (like hood) but even without all that it still pretty good build.
