R31 House Nissan Skyline Estate / Wagon

This is the limited edition R31 House Nissan Skyline R31 Estate / Wagon. It also has separate bumpers that are not shown in these pics but will be painted to match. Please ignore the black lines, they were just put there to try to decide what sort of paint scheme I wanted. New wheels for this body are also in the plans, +7 front and +10 rear thanks to the built in wide arches.

Here’s a couple pics of it sitting on the chassis with the front bumper resting in place and with temporary wheels.

Finished hand painting the window trims and took a few quick pics out in the sun. Painted the main grill opening a dark flat gray but I don’t think it’s dark enough, I’ll have to pick up some flat black. Still a lot more painting to do, panel lines once I get a new marker and then items like mirrors, wipers, muffler etc.
