The pricing is seen in the showroom display next to each model.

Cyrus, did you lift the spoiler from another car, or did you make it yourself?

The Red paint is a Translucent Color. I Myself was shocked when I saw the nissan Logo after the paint had dried. And this was after two coats!!!

And your 1:24 R34 is a Maisto! Grrr...


And how did you make that tacho? Why don't you take a printout of the dial and stick it on the tacho? Or should I get a printout for you?


My idea about decaling. Did it on MS Paint. Can you paint the body panel black as shown.

The Black looks Good!! And "our special sticker fellow" will kill me if I ask him to make Decals This small. At the moment, It will get a Big NISMO Decal first
