1/24 Zexel and Kure Nismo R33 GTR 1997 JGTC race car

Does anyone remember this pair from Gran Turismo 2?

For being a R33 Skyline GTR fan, I have made this pair as the JGTC pair for my collection.

Zexel R33 Nismo GTR - Base kit Tamiya Kure Nismo GTR, decals are after market decal from Ebay.

1/24 Initial D Project D Mazda FC3S and FD3S

To celebrate the end of the Initial D series, I have decided to make the Project D version of the Takahashi brothers' rides. Out of all the tuned cars, I personally like these dual the most.

First off, a random pic from my cell phone on my desk that I thought it looked pretty good:

Base kit for the FC is 1/24 Aoshima RE Amemiya FC3S with HPI hood and GT wing.  I used the Amemiya body kit because I felt it goes along with the FD and is subtle enough yet better looking than the stock  version in the series.  Shoes are 18" Advan RG, same as in the series.

Base kit for the FD is 1/24 Fujimi RE Amemiya FD3S Project D version.  The stock 17" wheels that came with the kit was too small so I modified it by using an 18" Aoshima Advan RG.

1/24 Hatsune Miku Porsche GT3R Super GT Race car (996 & 997)

The Good Smile Racing decals was a pain in the rear end to apply.  These are not perfect but I had a great experience building them overall.

996 GT3R - Base Tamiya kit + Renaissance transkit + GSR Miku decals

997 GT3R - Fujimi Hatsune Miku GT3R Kit B

For those of you who has not heard of this car, it is an actual race car sponsored by the company who made the Vocaloid series and it participates in the Japanese Super GT(formerly known as JGTC) in the GT300 class.  Below is a picture of the real car:

Enjoy and happy modeling!

1/24 Nismo GTR-LM No. 22 and No. 23 Year 1995 model

Wanted to make this project when I first got in touch with the very first Gran Turismo game, but there were never any decals available for No. 22 until I found one on the internet last year..

So here it goes - 16 yrs later is still better than never.

Car No.22 "Keep the Dream Alive"

Car No. 23 "Clarion"
