Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R 'Hakosuka'
When I first painted this Hot Wheels Hako in 2tone I was not pleased with the resulting look. I had initially polished and buffed the casting to an almost mirror shine (See How To Guide Here) as I had intended on going for a full spectraflame paint effect.
The roof and bonnet came up so clean I decided to mask the top and go for a 2 tone dark candy red over polished diecast but the red I chose ended up being a kind of red brick earthy colour. Don't get me wrong it looks awesome and is a very metallic spectraflame like colour, but when I first revealed the masking on the hako I was not impressed. Then for shits and giggles I added a set of whitewalls (from the 55 Corvette Boulevard model) and promptly fell in love...
Hellafresh Hellavintage and Loving it!
The moment I put the white walls underneath I knew I was onto a winner and so I set about detailing the car to match:
- I painted the interior dash, seat and steering wheel white to match the whitewalls and then also matched this with the front air dam/spoiler.
- I then created an external oil cooler from some staples (See How To Guide Here) and finished the detailing with some custom made decals. Panty Dropper indeed 😉
I will be sharing a full write up on the build process as well as covering some more basic topics like How To Mask and Apply Decals and Paint Details etc etc.
Until then, hopefully this Hella Vintage and oh so fresh Panty Dropping Hako will keep you entertained.
