Tamiya Nissan Skyline R34 Nismo Z Tune / Mesh Grill Mod

This is more practice makes perfect, so the shell is a bit srappy, but cutting out vents and putting in a mesh grill starts to transform most cars. For this I purchased some extra fine mesh for 1/24 scale model cars, and sprayed it with Matt Black BBQ Paint!

…you know, just in case it gets really hot! But as paint goes, it should last and because it’s metal based will look better for longer.

The GTR badge was from the grill I cut out, so it comes with the Tamiya Skyline R32 z-tune Bodykit.

Then, cut out to shape and stick on with double sided pads. I used this method because if you hard glue it on, and then crash there’s going to be a lot of paint flake off!

So here are the results, and bear in mind practice makes perfect so keep an eye out for Mark 2 soon……
