Memoire of 90's JDM race car - 1/24 Falken Nissan Skyline GTR R33 N1

Many original Gran Turismo and Best Motoring fan should be familiar of this car from the 90's - Falken Nissan Skyline GTR R33 N1 endurance race car.

This car in real life is modified to race in the Japanese endurance series "Super Taikyu" and the Skyline GTR was a dominant platform in the 90's.  The interior is completely stripped with roll cage and the engine output remains ~300hp.  Below is a picture of the real car featuring in Best Motoring.

Specs and modifications of my model:

  • Fujiimi 1/24 Nissan R33 Skyline GTR 1997 base kit
  • Fujimi Nismo LM-GT2 wheels
  • 1/24 Tamiya R32 Group N race interior and roll cage
  • Custom modified trunk gas inlet
  • Studio 27 R34 Falken N1 decals
