    Aoshima Nissan Leopard Ultima (Infiniti M30)

      Confession: as someone who very much adores underrated cars and makes a point to own them for the sake of being different, I’ve never heard of this car before, and even after building it, it doesn’t seem like the kind of car I’d normally be interested in. Just let me drown in my mainstream hotboi GT-Rs and WRXs. So,…

    Revell ’92 Mazda Miata MX-5

    Aoshima Top Secret Nissan Skyline GT-R R34

      Yes, I’ve already built an R34 Skyline before (and in Bayside Blue to boot) but this time it’s more than a simple rebuild – I don’t like building “variations” of my cars, so the only times I’ll build a new kit of the same car is to replace it with a better version (the old one will be booted/sold/hacked…
