Looks great. Spoiler finishes it off nicely.

Re: Tamiya R33 skyline

Looks great! Maybe a bit of wash on the wheels to bring out the lug nuts would be nice.

I think Andy Miller (MPWR) did an excellent tutorial on weathering engines. The concept is pretty much the same for lug nuts in which you thin XF-1 Flat Black to make sure that it's runny. Then you apply it to the wheels' creases, wait till it's dry and then wipe it off.

If you have pastels, you can also take cotton buds, rub it with black/brown pastels and then apply it deliberately to the wheels. This is actually my favorite weathering technique. Good luck and I wished I have pictures.

Re: Tamiya R33 skyline

hmm. I'll try it out on a set of spare rims. My mom might have some pastels laying around. If you can get me some links that'd be great too

Re: Tamiya R33 skyline

Your Skyline looks great! Nice to see an R33 in metallic blue as it sets itself apart from the black, silver or white ones we usually see on forums. The headlights look just fine based on what I see on the pics! For unpainted lens, the edges will be shiny in photos taken with flash, and that is just not right IMO

Re: Tamiya R33 skyline

Thanks for the comment. I REALLY do like this blue. And I use a lamp and put my camera on no flash so it doesn't make weird reflections and shines. But I tried my best on the lenses so thanks

Re: Tamiya R33 skyline

Nice model, the spoiler looks just as good as the rest of the build.
Good job!
