How hard would it be to...

Hi. How hard would it be to build this kit Tamiya Nismo R34 GT-R Z-Tune TT01 Kit for a first kit ever. I have never built a kit of my own, I have only gotten two RTR trucks. Any insight would be great.

The TT01 is not too hard to build - tub chassis and friction shocks - , seeing as it's your first kit though , I'd pay extra close attention to the instructions whilst building. I'm sure you have some experience from maintaining your RTR's , and getting a kit is the next logical step and half the fun of owning an RC!

Have fun!

Cool, thanks. I didnt think it was that difficult of a kit, and I can read blueprints pretty good, if thta matters at all, and I have built ALOT of models with my father for years now. So I figured a kit would be quite similar to a model, just more stuff, and a larger scale. Thanks again.

Hey I dont know what your intentions are for a first kit but you could get the far more technologically advanced Tamiya Ta05 for just a few more scheckles.

TA05 doesn't come with an ESC though and requires some soldering. I'd agree though that you can probably handle a more complex kit. Sounds like you have lots of experience with scale model building and those can be much more complex than an RC car.

The TT-01 was my first kit a few years back, and it was a good build for a first kit. Just take your time, read each step in the instructions carefully (at least twice) before putting anything together and enjoy yourself. It will turn out perfectly!

My first kit was a TA-04SS. Then a TA-05 as my second kit.

Follow the instructions. That's the reason they were made. To aid in building things, not to be thrown out with the box... But I keep the boxes too.

I have a harder time building those little tiny models that rc cars. I can never get the glue just right, the part always moves around then I never know how long to let the paint dry for.
