The paint scheme is based of the Nissan works car
Cool! Neve knew this kit was based on a real car. With so many ficitonal Tunner car kits out there, I just assumed it was another one of those.
Peter Brock and Bob Sharp never ran the ZG nose on their 240Z.
But what if they did.......With RB26DETT POWER

i added some strip evergreen to the sides of the hood to close the gap from where i gouged out the hood. a little more work is needed on the bottom of the hood.
my first attempt at adding hood hinges. way harder than expected. because of the way the hood opens i had to use tube so it could slide up to make the clearance needed to open.
this is about as far as it will open on display. i will clean up the messy area as soon as the glue sets up.

This is where she stands.
I found these at "walmarks"
They are called sew on snaps
They were a buck or two and look like the tops of coil overs. They wont be seen much on this model but look as if they would go great on any car that they are visable.
I was also given a old pontiac firebird that has an ls1 in it. The 1/25 engine drops in the 1/24 engine bay well. I just have to decide if i want to go that way or keep the rb26. The ls1 will be much easier.
I have also decided to go with the ts44 brilliant blue. I still may do the Calsonic decals. The kit ones are just to much.
