Skyline with engine??

Are there any Skyline kits with an engine in them?Preferably a R34.

The last kit to get the engine was the R32, but it is pretty much the same lump, so it is possible to put that engine in the R34.
Only the inner arch detail has to be constructed.

I wonder if there is much difference between there race and road engine. You can still get the the Race car model here

Thanks P-man, I hadnt noticed that Skyline at HLJ. If I cant find it at one of the local hobby shops I'll order online.

I saw that one (and the Calsonic one) at my local hobby shop. If I were into race-prepped models, I'd opt for one of those. Maybe a bit later on, when I get a bit more time, I'll jump on one.

I dug out what was left of my old Calsonic R32, I can certainly show you the engine!
This kit was built when it was released, about 9 years ago.
I sprayed with Humbrol enamel from a can! It also shows signs of inexperience, such as the tell tale glue marks on the lights!
I think the air filter may be missing from the engine bay, but otherwise it is complete!
The wheels and brakes are long gone, as is the bonnet! Brings back memories though!
A kit I would like to make again one day!

It would be possible to rebuild it I guess with another kit! But I suppose there is little point when the skills have improved somewhat since then!
Here is the engine! A very nice kit! It really requires extra interior detail as usual though!

Umm that looks better than anything I've put out so far. :rolleyes: Maybe you're too picky.

I think I would need another kit to replace the parts, so doesn't it make sense just to the kit again?
I will probably look through all my boxes in the attic to see what patys I could find.
I really need to locate the bonnet (Hood!)

Inexperience:confused: That looks way better than any model I have put out yet :cry:
