For my silver choice for LaLD Car Week, I have this silver 1:43 Nissan R34 GT-R V-Spec from one my favourite scale model brands - HPI. Hailing from the MIRAGE line, this scaled-down Godzilla is a sealed resin model.

The 1:43 of the same car from AUTOart is in my collection, and I when laid my eyes on this HPI iteration I could immediately spot the superiority it has over the Aa ones. On one hand, I was impressed with the fit and finish from HPI. On the other hand, I knew 1:43 AUTOart models no longer tickle my fancy. While I decide how to feel about this, let’s take a closer look at this magnificent piece. Aside from the lowered ride height, it is otherwise stock. Behind these OEM wheels reveals huge brake disc rotors and bright gold calipers – all hints at what this potent machine is capable of.

There you have it, my entry for silver cars in LaLD Car Week 2018. I’ll now leave you to enjoy the pictures.
