Default XANAVÍ NISMO GT-R, Tamiya, 1/24

I was off the jet modelling for two weeks now, because I promised to build few F-1 kits for a customer - I needed to try car modeling techniques...

Kit is one of the best - Tamiya Special Edition of beautifully agresive Nissan Skyline GT-R in a japan JGTC racing modification (pretty heavy ). I love those cars... F-1 didn´t speak to me much, I am pretty fall in Le Mans series, DTM, JGTC etc. As a Mazda MX-5 owner, off course my favorite is Mazda 787B which was the only japan car that won Le Mans and only one winner with Wankel engine ever.

Anyway, back to Nismo: painting was done by ZERO Paints with Gunze Super Clear lacquer - I learned, that next time I´ll use some of 2K laquers - it will flood the T´s damn decals better. Only few things has to be done - it will be finnished this week

Thanks for looking!

Looks very nice. I just finished Tamiya's Calsonic Z. I'm a big fan of road racing, especially the American Le Mans series; unfortunately I'm stuck in the land of NASCAR. Though about 3 hours from my house is Lime Rock Park, so I do get to see some great road racing. ALMS has been there in July for the last three years.(Going again this year)Once again Pavel, a great build.

thanks Demon- it could be better, the decals are PIA - make hood without serious problems is almost impossible.

Any pics of your Z? Great! I hope one day I will do a trip to Le Mans to see that race - it must be life experience...!

Very crisp and clean painting and decalling there. Shame about the paintjob as it does look rather orange-peely in the pics. You could try smoothing the paint with micromesh and then giving it another coat of clear gloss... More gloss over a non-smooth surface is not going to do much good. If you use Zero Paints 2-pack gloss, thin it more than prescribed. The paint will go on thinner and it seems to level out better too. Low pressure. With a bit of luck and skill, it will be like spraying on a coat of glass

Thanks Jens.. Orange surface was bad at the start, now it is better. I was abrading it in three stages - next layer of clear coat between. Next time I will use 2K coat, I was told it will do better job

Yes, the Zero Paints aren't gloss, so if using a thin clear coat, it will merely give you orange peel. In that respect, you're better off using the 2-pack clear coat, which is what I did on the latest litte Ferrari. It is VERY run-resistant, so you can put on really heavy wet coats, though you need to mist on a few coats first. It's excellent stuff, but hard to polish out.

Ok, I have it ordered - hope to see it soon. Anyway, all zero paints are hard to polish out - it is a good thing on them...

ZP are the best what you can use on car model - when you need exact shade... Especially Ferrari red is very specific.

here it is! http://www.zero-paints.co.uk/2008/Welcome.html

Daniel,

Zero Paints are available from Hiroboy - www.hiroboy.com. They are geared mainly to the automotive modelling market and offer paints mixed to full size car colours, though they also do custom mixing. The basecoat paints are acrylic, but not waterbased acrylics and dry to a satin finish fairly quickly. You will then need to overcoat with clear gloss of which they make a normal paint and a 2-pack that mixes with hardener.

Jens
