Nissan R390 GT1 Racecar GT1

The R390 GT1 took its name from a car, R380, that excited Japanese motor sports enthusiasts over thirty years ago. Jointly developed by Nissan and TWR (Tom Walkinshaw Racing), the R390 GT1 is the state of the art racing expertise of them. Aerodynamically refined low and sleek body styling is suggestive of Nissan's highly competitive Gr. C machines raced during the 1980's. The 3.5 liter V8 engine, producing an awesome 600 horsepower output, is bolted directly to the carbon composite monocoque and works as a load-carrying element. The tremendous power is delivered to the rear wheels via a transversely mounted, six speed transmission. The four wheel double wishbone suspension system is connected to the horizontally mounted shock absorbers via pushrods and bell cranks to provide optimum road handling performance.

"Another Great Tamiya Car Kit"
smiffy93
There's a whole range of 1:24 scale car kits and after trying a couple of vintage-style race cars moved on to Rally and Race cars. Don't be afraid of the decals seeming to be complicated as the fit very well and are a little forgiving (they don't have to be perfect to give a good image). Agree with others that the Chassis/Engine/Interior is a good model all by itself and doesn't need the exterior shell to make a good display. My only issue with the kit is that it is molded in white and has white decals so the whole kit needs some form of color to make them effective. With that being said you can try a different color scheme as you wish.

"Nasty Nissan"
richardeller112 (Hoschton Ga. USA)
Great kit and highly detailed. You really have to think through the process of painting and building these Tamiya racecars. For experienced modelers it is the greatest joy to be challenged like this. I had alot of fun building this one and you will too. I love that they gave you the decal options for all 3 versions of this 1997 LeMans beauty.

 
"Serious Detailing"
uniqueithink
This has been the most superior kit to add enormous detail to the engine bay. For those who are into this, you must do one of these for sure. There are so few obstructions and doesn't have a cowl on top of the motor. Most of the credit is given to Tamiya on this one. The fit is perfect allowing you to mock up the entire engine bay, identify places for add on's and repeat this over and over again.

 
"Tamiya models"
r.lanterman
I try to only buy tamiya because their models are so details. This model is great. I love models which have complete engine detail. The engine in the Nissan R390 is very detailed. The model came on time and in good shape. I will be ordering more models from Hobbylinc
