Say hello to the newest addition to the paddock, and my very last for awhile. Gotten through CitizenPatrick for a deal that would make Mike Brewer blush in Cockney, this is my third Nissan, behind my Bburago R35 I got back in 2009, and an R34 JGTC my dear friend (DSScats from Oppo) gave me for Christmas this past year. Here is C/N 1787 of this run of 2,000!

Now away from the Outside shots! Studio time I shared with a sake bottle I needed to shoot for a studio photography project. Also with this studio shoot, I experimented with a reduced setup, where I had the tube of backdrop paper over a folding table with an identical lighting setup. This meant I didn’t need to hassle with the utter pain in the butt setup job that is the light table.
