Here's a R34 Skyline trio, Z-tune Nismo, Sports Resetting (blue) and Mine's (white). I had the regular silver Z-tune before and just wasn't feeling it. Ended up sacrificing it for the Mine's build. I like this one much better cause of the livery and the random little details. The Resetting was an impulse purchase but I was pleasantly surprised at how good looking it was in person. The blue works really well with the white and red stripes and the bronze wheels. I've covered my Mine's build extensively before so no need to add anything there. Enjoy!

There’s a certain mysticism about them that is totally unique to the JDM tuner scene. And I love them for that. Plus watching the Mine’s R34 tear up Tsukuba changed my life lol

Every time i decide to sell my JDM collection i find some really nice R34 on pictures....

I've sold many Autoart R34 but they look so good in white or blue, i can't sell these colors. And now i want a Mines version and the missing Sport Resetting in my collection.

Thank you Wes :gaah:

Hot damn! I just drooled all over my laptop keyboard. Man looking at those modded engine bays made me look into every detail. So much hard work and time to put in that little engine to place. Love this thread. Looking forward to see the future builds. I've been a fan of your work.

Alrighty, time for another set of pics. This time they're outdoor pics of the recently completed Mine's R32 GT-R and some group shots with its stablemates, the R33 and R34.

First, on its own.

Well if they do, I'd hope they would be wise enough to at least do the 400R. The R-Tune was close, but not quite the same.
