D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Hi guys!

Im not really shure if Im right here, its my first topic here in the Motorsports area and my fourth at all on AF. For me this car is a race car because its moving around race tracks. I hope you like my project and support me maybe a little.

Ok, one more BlitzER!
I bought this kit a while ago and was very happy, then Aoshima released the 2005 version Ok, the ver. 05 looks a bit angry, my 04 more friendly. The same with the KeiOffice Silvia

Anyway, this kit looks easy and nice with rollcage, wing and very nice decals. I will change the seats and build my own seatbelts. I hope I can put some more details on this. You can look in the hood vent and there is nothing like an engine to see. I hope I can sort this out, too...

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Hey,

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

This I have done for the light weight

And these are the parts for the interior, seatbelts, some parts for the rollcage... next step will be to built and fit the seatbelts.

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Thanks.
I had good luck with some gift wrap. Its a combination of ScaleProduction PE parts and blue gift wrap.
I bought the PE parts @ http://www.automobilminiaturen.de/ , there can be bought a set with decals, belts (red, blue, black (picture above in a bag)) with PE parts. Its very close to these belts or maybe better I think.

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Hi guys, small update: stripped interior



something like this:

Next step will be the inner door handles. No good for lazy people like me... same progress 4 times



The seats are too high, less than 1mm between the roof. I sandet 1mm from the bottom of the seat and 1mm of the moulded seat mounts on interior bottom. Now they have correct position, I think.


Next problem is waiting: How to disable 4WD?

Any ideas?

Has any one a picture of the underside of a RWD Skyline? A bottom of a model car would be helpful, too, please?

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Hi ,
little update, dashboard carbonated and scratchbuilt pedals.


The dashboard has SMS CF and Tamiya smoke now and needs a bit of polish and some semigloss laquer, I think.

Re: D1 BLITZ ER34 Skyline

Looking good! Love the work you've done to the interior. Just fantastic. You're pouring a lot of detail into this, and it's great. These drift cars need some good attention from a builder like you.

I have a few cast resin copies of the valve cover from an RB26, I can send you one to put under the hood so there's something to be seen through that hole. But I don't think the motor sticks that far forward. On the 1:1 car, there's probably just radiator or ducting to be seen through that hole in the hood.
