nissan fairlady 300ZR, '90s wangan style

i've been watching again my collection of shuto kousuko battle movies in DVD, and i was inspired to finally finish this z31(?) fairlady 300ZR

for those who doesnt know, "shuto kousuko" or "wangan expressway" / "freeway speedway" movies were made in the 90s to early 2000s, which also stars keiichi tsuchiya from part 2-6. its mostly about wangan and some touge racing, and the atmosphere is distinctly 90s. the actors and clothing are definitely cheesy, but i like the style of the cars from that era.
here's a clip from one of the movies(and the bodykit of the R32 and FC in this clip i like to replicate)

i built the body style in a way that it should be back in the 90s, bright color, with lotsa stickers to attract some challengers on the wangan. most cars in the movie have stockish interiors, so i just left it as is. built mostly stock except for rim change and lowering.

its just a quickie build so it has some flaws, and i need to build faster so the wife allows me to acquire new kits.

i think im going to create a stable of 90s style wangan and touge cars

boro boro skyline kpgc10 redux

even the boro skyline received some fresh updates. seems the owner of the hako is enjoying himself that he bought new wheels, a race seat and a rollcage. and he also got a new spoiler. and some straps to hold the oil cooler in place. :D but he still doesnt care about the body.
