After watching 'The Fast And The Furious' at the cinema last night, I have been inspired to start a new project.

The cars in the film are all super modified Japanese road cars, and the best kit I found was Tamiya's New Celica.

I am piecing together parts from the spares box, and this is what I have come up with so far. All parts will need molding into place, then a wicked paint job applied on top with graphics.

Big 18" wheels have been sourced, and the car will have a loud coloured interior and big Sound system.

Work proper will start as soon as I finish my S2000!

Updates as usual!!!

If you can get your hands on American Revell kits, the Integra Type R has big flashy decals that totally fit the bill. Hell, maybe I'll just send you mine, if you think they'll work. Let me know; I'll try to find pics of them... :D

Revell make a Type-R? Cool!
Yeah, I am interested! Piccies?

Here's a link to the regular model... Acura Integra Type R (http://www.revell-monogram.com/store/ModelDetail.cfm?Id=0&Number=2572&x=35&y=13). The site only shows the "stock" form, not the "modified," even though it's not quite stock, either. I'm still looking for the pics of the crazy decals... :D

It's only Rice if it's made to look fast and it isn't. If it's fast, your allowed to make it look silly :). It's like plastering Cobra symbols all over my Marquis, when I know damned well there are NO Cobra Mustang parts on her....

That pic looks good at the top :).

Looking good Dan.
Might give me some idea's on painting mine. !!!
What spares are you using...or you going to scratch build some parts ???

P.S. At least you guys have seen FNF, still not here untill October 8th. :mad: :mad:

Guiddy

Most are parts from other cars, the sills are of the R34, the front spoiler off a Porsche GT2., rear wing off the DTM Merc!
They need to be reduced in size a bit, they are too deep at the moment!

Colour wise, I recieved some prismatic purple pearl laquer, so want to apply that over a white base, that will give me a subtle white pearl colour, then add some blue graphics.

S2000 is gonna show me some decals, so might see if that changes those plans.

Suspension is probably going to need a lot of work, those wheels are wide and the car must be very low.

But I think most of the parts will be off other kits, no scratchbuilding!

My Cousin is still trying to locate the rear wing! I can't seem to find it in my kit!

Plus, as much as I love it, I can't help feeling I need the wheels for my Nismo 400R project!:mad:

So no, not yet!

The Road R34 should be finished after the S2000. Hopefully both this week!

Here you go, Dan. ;)

From the front of the instruction sheet:
http://files.automotiveforums.com/uploads/852064lwf2.jpg

The Decal section of the instruction sheet. It's easier to see the stuff here in black and white than on the sheet itself in white on light blue...
"Custom Version 1"
http://files.automotiveforums.com/uploads/461370CV1.jpg

"Custom Version 2"
http://files.automotiveforums.com/uploads/890241CV2.jpg

These are the "Bonus Sponsor Decals," of which I've never heard of any... :bloated: They are on the decal sheet in pairs in silver, white and yellow...
http://files.automotiveforums.com/uploads/452513BonSponDec.jpg

And here is the decal sheet itself:

Let me know if you have any questions... :D

What colours athe splodges?

White and silver or white and grey?

They look quite promising! You are not going to use them?:D

Jay!
09-16-2001, 05:52 PM
Depends how hard you look. They're supposed to be silver and white.

I'm probably going to buy another Revell Integra eventually, so if you want to use these decals now... they'll just sit in the box here. :rolleyes:

Also, I edited a bit. Don't miss the part about your 400R. :D

OK......Have the wing but no supports brackets from the body to the wing.

Have the whole front nose cone. You should already have these from the Kure kit ???

Same as this one in this pic

Nose cone is fine, just need the wing! May even have the supports!
Let me see!

Yep, got the supports, just need parts E10, E11, E15 and E16!

Don't know what I did with them!:rolleyes:

Damn, so many kits! I need to break a leg! Get some time off work!:D

Guiddy
09-17-2001, 07:46 PM
Hmmmmmm, still can't decide what to do for paint!

I think I will end up doing it all by hand!
I have some time anyway, as I want to finish the S2000 and my R34 first!
The Celica will need some work adding the Aero kit!

well, at least you have a shop that carries them. i have to resort to begging and the internet. if i can't find a fellow AFer that will buy one and mail it to me then i will have to buy a DIECAST one from ebay, cause thats all i can find in an R34. diecast isn't much fun, theres no swearing or a sense of accomplishment. anyone wanna buy me one? i'll repay you...

Jay!
09-22-2001, 03:33 PM
I'm sure you could find the model on ebay, too... :confused:

Here's an ended one:
1/24 Tamiya Nissan Skyline GT-RV-spec (R34)! (http://cgi.ebay.com/aw-cgi/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1635935994)
It says it was relisted, but the link is dead. Maybe someone used the "Buy it now?"

Just be patient. :D LOL!!!

S Brake
09-22-2001, 03:36 PM
i checked and all the models are R32 and R33, those are great and all, but i have my heart set on an R34. the only R34's i could find were diecast. maybe i'm using the wrong search words. i typed in Nissan Skyline. what else should i try?

Jay!
09-22-2001, 03:40 PM
I search for "1/24 Skyline" I have it saved in my myEbay Favorite searches. You can set it up to email you when new stuff shows up in your search...

I recently figured out a super-search to look for almost everything I want, all at once... Try:
"1/24 +(honda,nissan,toyota,subaru,mitsubishi)"

:D

I am telling you guys, if you can find a kit I want, I will trade an R34 for it!

Current WANT list is Tamiya Toyota Supra, 1995 on (24123) or the Mazda 787B LeMans car!

Any of those and you'll find an R34 heading your way!!!
