I TOO had a little spare time over Xmas Holidays, and decided to build/paint some new GT cars for my own collection.

My effort at the JMB Racing 575 Maranello.. Spare Carrera Ferrari after I bought the Monza Set, so, it had to be re-painted.


Then, I bought the Autoart Nissan 350 Z "Fairlady", to convert to the JGTCXANAVI Nissan. Much re-building required, as the Autoart car is VERY thin in comparison to other cars.. To Fit onto the intended HRS chassis, I had to blow out the Wheel Arches quite a bit with modelling putty and much sanding, but the finished/semi-finished car looks pretty cool..

I just LOVE this car's rear end.. Those tail lights are awesome...

Here's a pic of the real car...

Amen.

That's what AA should have given us in the first place, the fools. Perhaps it is what Ninco will give us.

Quality work.

Hi Mark, Wankel,

the Decals are self made on white waterslide paper.. I did build this as a companion to Ninco's JGTC cars, as I've already built a Toyota Celica Supra as well..

I LOVE the wide variety of GT Cars currently available, and, as we're still trying to finalize specs for our GT Class racing here, using the HRS chassis as a standard bottom end, with no mods allowed except a bit of weight to help handling..
Makes for the BEST looking selection of cars, and comes down to the better drivers, not the Biggest Wallets...

cheers for now

Regards

Al

Thanks for the comments.
