Conceptual Nissan GTP IMSA prototype

Kit / Model  

Minolta Toyota 88C

Manufacturer  

Hasegawa

Item Code  

20236

Scale  

1/24

Description  

This conceptual Nissan gtp car is based on the vintage 1/24 scale hasegawa Nissan R89C kit. The kit chassis was built straight from the box with some front end modification to accommodate the revised front section of the bodywork. The kit bodywork was revised by attaching two re-contoured styrene sheets to the sides of the kit bodywork forming side skirts and rear extensions for the rear wing. Cooling vents and exhaust ports were also incorporated into these plates. Aluminum sheet simulated the exhaust panels , and 4 styrene sheets were glued in at an angle to represent the cooling intake louvers. The front deck was reworked and re-contoured forming a completely revised nose with a scratch-built spoiler and head light covers made from clear plastic packaging material. The kit rear wingpylon was also revised to accommodate the modified two-piece rear wing panels. Other scratch-built parts included the rear and side airscoops, rear end vents, front aero-vanes, and racing mirrors. The model was airbrushed in a strictly conceptual Italian red tinted with classic beige testors enamel/engine blue tinted with black and classic beige paint scheme and finished with kit decals and others from the spares file. The "fanta" and“juplas“logos were computer generated. A final gloss coat of Johnson’s future wax was airbrushed to complete the project.
