Welcome to Part 1 of the Tamiya Nissan GT-R Model Kit build. In this video, we’ll be going over the prep, painting and detailing of the body all the way to applying the final clear coat.

The entire process was quite easy other than the masking and detailing of the engine – it was a little more tricky than I anticipated. Take your time and you’ll get it figured out!
