Thanks Brandon.. :o
I've opened them in 1/25 before, though they weren't functional...only glued open.
I have a Tamiya 1/24 Supra with an old version PS1 (playstation) and controller, sitting in the open glovebox... :o

cheers mate

NICE! but there is a problem with that, you wont be able to play and drive at the same time, the bumps in the road would make the game skip and freeze on you! ;) hahahahaha :o , lol! it would be cool to see a scale ps3 in there! :o lol, just an idea ;) :o !



and rolling windows? that sounds awsome! now that would be another first for me :o !

cheers! :o

:lol: Thanks Brandon......I hadn't considered the problem with trying to play the PS1...... :lol:

Well, I haven't got to the roll down windows yet.....but I have managed to get a bit done.....
Got thinking about fuel.......an this is what I come up with.......NIZM-O label is from a 1/24 Tamiya GT-R....... ;)

Posted Image

Still need to fab up a hinge for the fuel door....but all the innards are in there.....lots of hoses to add as well...
Posted Image

And just added some extra detail to the rear brake backs...the brackets will have the cables attach to'em....
Posted Image

That's about it for now.......ol' life has been gettin in the way lately........More soon.
cheers
Greg

Brandon, not sure there will be much more Nizmo stuff go on.....I was searching for a tiny Datsun logo amongst my decals, but spotted that label first and thought, that'll do... B)

Well guys, this weekend is the closest it's come to perfect....and I have family commitments...... :)
The body is still no where near to being in a paint ready stage..... and I haven't really accomplished that much else of late....sorry..
Had some odds'n'ends arrive from Scale Hardware...I needed some tiny nuts to fit up the brake system, now I am ready to start the installation...
Also been working on the fuel system, made my own aftermarket style electric fuel pump and duel in-line filters...
Currently have an order in with Detail Master for some fuel fittings...I thought I had the correct ones, but they don't suit how I would like... :blink:
The ones pictured are some old Modellers brand....long OOP I believe....

Anyways, here's a small update for you's.....hope it keeps you entertained till the next step.. :blink: Erm, please excuse the dust.... :blink:

Fuel tank is mounted with this strips of aluminium, secured with SH bolts. Just visible is the "old" fuel line from the outlet. It is blocked off with a bolt too.

And, my handy work (read = attempt..) at my aftermarket fuel components.....
The fuel pump has been tapped for the installation of tiny bolts to secure the electrical wiring too..
The red fittings are the Modellers ones, the white are just some Plastruct hex rod....I'll wait for the DM ones to arrive before I finish all the lines here...
Posted Image

So that's pretty much it for now.....not getting as much done as I'd like, but it is still moving along......s l o w l y.....
I'll have more soon I hope guys......
cheers
Greg
