    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,…

    Jada 1973 Datsun 510 (Widebody) Jonsibal Custom

    Aoshima/Tamiya Nissan Fairlady Z 350z Nismo

      I’m kind of surprised at myself for not having built a Z33 or Z34 up until now – specifically the Z33, as it very much feels like an import poster car for the 21st century. It’s not an uncommon sight around here, and even when people not very interested in cars see them they immediately know it’s an iconic…
