Welcome to Part 2 of the Tamiya Nissan GT-R Model Kit build. In this video, we work on the chassis, suspension and wheels and tires of the GT-R kit.

I was initially going to just paint the whole underside of the chassis matte black but decided I’d try my hand at masking it. Since I wanted to spray it all, that posed a bit more of a challenge than I expected but in the end I think it came out alright.

Before we start the chassis video, here are some specifics about the kit and the paints and tools we’ll be using during this step.
