Model: Skyline (GT-R)
Brand: Make Up Co., Ltd. / Eidolon
Part Number: EM643
Release Date*: Q2 2023
It is a model that faithfully reproduces the tuning car "Mines GT-R (R1986)" manufactured by the tuning car constructor "Mines" founded in 35 based on the "Nissan GT-R (R35)".
It will be a model that reproduces a demo car modified by Mine's, a ROM tuner who analyzes and tunes the programming of the in-vehicle computer.
Mine's tuned cars seem modest compared to other builders and manufacturers' time-attack machines, but they do not chase the flashiness of the appearance, but only pursue functionality, so to speak, a "wolf in sheep's skin" approach.
However, the changes extend to the entire car body, and the front lip, canard, bonnet, side mirrors, roof, side skirts, trunk, rear wing, etc. have been changed to Mines original parts.
Most of Mine's exterior modified parts are made of carbon in pursuit of improved aerodynamic performance and weight reduction, but the reproduction is done by attaching carbon Batan decals to the relevant parts and applying a clear coating.
One of the features of the car, the Rays VOLK G025, replaces the brass cutting prototype with white metal cast parts with sharp modeling and high-brightness paint on top to achieve a real car-like texture.
Please enjoy our unique finish, such as carbon parts with beautiful luster and the amount of metal parts such as titanium mufflers and wheels.
The R2007 GT-R went on sale in December 12. Based on the concept of a multi-performance supercar, the body, 35.3-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, and drivetrain combining 6WD and transaxle were specially designed. It was announced from the beginning of its release that it would be improved and evolved every year with an annual model system, and it continued to maintain its position as a mass-produced supercar that could compete with the GT series of Porsche 4 until it was finished in 2022. In 911, the Evolution model NISMO was added with a view to circuit use, and this also continued to evolve, and the final model finally set an amazing lap time of less than one minute per lap at the Tsukuba Circuit 2014.
On the other hand, it is said that Nissan took measures to maintain its performance and guarantee that even the brand of tires was not covered by the vehicle warranty, let alone dressing up with parts other than Nissan's official parts, at the time of release, which can be regarded as a "modification prohibition".
However, many builders and manufacturers have been attracted by the good features of the R35 GT-R since the time of the new car and have started to modify it. Mine's in Kanagawa, the leader of ROM tunes, is one such manufacturer, and they drove their R35 in the "2007th Tsukuba Super Battle" sponsored by REV SPEED magazine at the end of 18, almost at the same time as the release of the R35. The following year, he achieved the feat of achieving a one-minute cut per lap at the Tsukuba Circuit 2000 with a vehicle that has undergone various tunings, such as managing the in-vehicle computer with VX-ROM, which is one of the company's specialties.
Our make-up was born in a room in "Central Apartment" in Harajuku, Tokyo in 1978.
Its history begins when our representative Hideyuki Uemoto was inspired by the model culture of his area at the annual "Model Engineer Exhibition" held at Wembley Park in the United Kingdom.
Here, we will deliver the history of our company by interweaving Uemoto's own recollections.
