I think that grill is very nice, the right look indeed. Another great use for pins!
Thanks guys. It was a numbing project but I think the end result will be pretty cool. I can't wait to see it when it's all chromed up and ready to go. Thanks again.
Yeah, I like that grill! Well done.

Bodywork after paint.
Finished chassis with wired engines.
If you've never attempted this model beware. There is a ton of chrome! Every piece that makes up the frame, suspension, steering etc is chrome. Construction and paint were done per kit instructions and photos I have of the actual car. I added yellow thread to add plug wires. The finished model is quite good looking

This is a 1932 Datsun roadster. The body is a Revell Germany BWW 2/15 Dixi, which was produced by BMW in Germany under licence to Austin... it was basically a duplicate of the Austin 7, which was sort of like England's Model T Ford. But here's the thing... the design was also copied and produced, illegally, by Datsun in Japan. Since I had the Fujimi Parts Pack Nissan S20 DOHC inline six, I used that for power. The frame is scratchbuilt, as are the floor pan and interior bulkheads. The steering wheel and now non-existant Racing Mate decals also came from that parts pack.
I wasn't happy with the paint on this, and when I got to looking, the passenger's side door (left in this case as the car will be RHD). So I stripped it and redid both doors. While I was at it, I also made up a new floor and drivetrain bulge, and a new dashboard. I'm thinking I will run a track nose off a Revell Midget up front, but nothing is carved in stone. Should have some updated pics soon.

Of course! That Datsun above has stalled maybe five or six times.
Is it possible for a build to stall more than once?
