That looks awsome, but one question....How did you get the kit wheels to fit on the mini-z chassis?

I used mini 4wd wheels drilled holes through and put the rims on them with rubberbands in between to hold them. for the back its more complicated, i posted a tamiya 1/24 supra here and on the second page, i show how to put the body on and the wheels step by step.

Skyline

Shinji,

Excellent work indeed!
Extra points for the wheels too!
They add the realism and remove the narrow look sometimes seen when using 1/24th scale bodies.
