Model Skylines !

My other half bought me one of those R34 Auto Art models in Bayside Blue for my birthday a couple of months ago, bloody excellent little model & absolutely 100% spot on detailing ! They also do one in Midnight Purple now (not sure if it MP1 or MP2 in colour) for the R34 also. I cant see a decent one for the R33 anywhere yet though, anyone know where I can get one !?

I built one of the Tamiya plastic kits about a year ago, the kit is exactly the same as my real life R33 GTS, I even managed to get the Burgundy red paint for it too ! You have to keep your temper while building it though, it's well worth it in the end !!

R34

Paul.

Yeah I've got one. Kept it quite 'cause I'm wanting to modify it before I bring it out. Now all I need to do is find some parts for an upgrade. Mmmmmmmm.

glen

ps. Couldn't stop today Paul. Had just dropped me daughter at college and had to get home asap.

Model mania !!!!

Come on Scott, where can we get these Ebbro models over here in Blighty !?!?

I have had a scan about and can't find em anywhere !

I could be having a bit of a spend up if I can find out where to get them !

Or I could just try and talk my gorgeous other half (I have to say this now as she reads my posts every now and then and I have to keep her sweet, espically if I am going to a Skyline meeting. Ian, I know how you feel mate !) into getting me one for christmas !!!

Getting onto the subject of phones, I wonder if we could talk someone into making a cover for the Nokia phones with a Skyline on or a GT-R badge perhaps !! Mmmmmm.......

Regards

Shaun.

Fuggles "Do they do a phone in the shape of a GTR?"
Is that not just a tad "council estate"
:D
I had tamiya 12th countach many years ago - but would like an 18th 33 + 34 to go with my GT1, GT2, EB110, 250GTO, F1, 911, Avus, F40, F50 etc

Phil (not sad in any way whatsoever)

1/43rd Skylines

Hi all

I bought an R34 GTR in 1/43rd from a fim called Orange Dragon
from Gt Yarmouth about a year ago. Their number is 01493 722065. Cost was about £32
from what I can remember.

Have ordered an R33 GTR from T A Spensley from Co. Durham phone number 01325 308478. He has plenty in stock of white, metallic grey and purple. Cost was £29.50 incl. postage to UK.
I think his name came up on another thread. He owns a R33
GTS so is on-side. He should be getting the full Nismo body-kit R33 soon.

For you R32 guys Rosso did a Calsonic racing version in 1/43rd and Del Prado issued a silver road version with their magazine
a couple of years back. I also think Ebbro did some R32's but I have not seen any.

As soon as an R35 diecast model comes out I will buy it.
I will only possibly buy it if its made by Autoart though.

Where?

I did used to get my Ebbro models from Orange Dragon too.
Their Ebbro main UK importer.

As all of the Ebbro models are Ltd editions (4000) they soon go out of stock.
I found them Orange dragon limited and unable to try to get hold of the
rarer models.

Now I go too EWA Model cars in the US (www.ewacars.com)

They were able to get hold of most of them. They even found the last
R32 Axia race car in HK, shipped it to me in two week!

Take a look at the Ebbro museum for the older stuff, some still avalible @ EWA.

There are R32 1/18th avalible too. These are Calasonic and Zexel race cars.

Not sure where to get them, but going to www.Ebay.com and searching for:
'Nissan Skyline' always brings up plenty of models.
