Hi guys, asking for some advice on whether or not this is a good kit as I've only ever built Tamiya. Aoshima.. Do they make good stuff? Is this kit in particular any good? I'd like to know before I set into spending the money. Thanks! :)

Hi!!

Yes.. actually it's Aoshima standard model car, nothing special, if you built Nismo or C-West.. they are all the same, just small changes like bumpers and hood, rims are not very accurate, but it's a nice kit overall..

It is a good Kit. Nice Detail like the small Tailfin. Very good Decals.

aoshima R34 looks like a funny copy of R34, try to google some pics of completed aoshima kit and u will see it isnt acurate. if u want really good looking R34 go for tamiya and combine decals and wheels from mines car or buy a transkit from A+Club? (I believe)

Thank you, can you please give me a link to the trans kit? And how do trans kits work then, I've never used one? :o Thank you again :)

Edit: Oh, and would one be available from the UK, or would I have to get one abroad? Thanks :)

Thank you :D I had planned on making an 80s Porsche 911 into a Ruf Yellowbird for my first modification project but I think this will be a touch better for easing me into it :P

Thanks TurboThirtyTwo (A GT-R reference or a Golf one? :P)
