Video of the week: Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 cutaway model

Its builder, Mr Junji Sawada, created something way cooler than an ordinary cutaway drawing: a cutaway scale model in 1/24 size and it is based upon a standard Tamiya model. You can see through most of the parts and if you look through the trunklid (or bootlid) you can see the special GT-R fueltank and spare wheel. The last two parts have been handcrafted as they were not part of the original.

Look for more details in the video below:

Japanese rustoseums (part twentyseven)

This little red shortnose Skyline Coupe KGC10 is rusting away somewhere on a junkyard. It must be there for a long time now: even a tree is growing out of the side windows!

This 1800GL coupe is probably the most unloved model of the hakosuka Skyline because it lacks both the extended wheelbase of the other coupes and at the same time it lacks the smooth lines of the sedan/wagon.
