Shakotan Boogie: Aoshima “Japan” Skyline model

One of my nerdier hobbies is building 1/24 scale models of Japanese cars. I’ve decided to throw up a few pics to show you some of the cars in the collection!

The Aoshima cars are amazingly detailed and, well, cool. This is a shakotan “Japan” Skyline.

All the styling cues are there. Externally mounted oil cooler with exaggerated lines, bolt on flares, Vitaloni mirrors, chin spoiler, stickers, even a pair of speaker boxes on the parcel shelf.

Not to mention the awesome DEEP Sakuras with hippari tyres & demon camber.

Such a cool little kit. I’ll post more every now & then!
