So i started with a Remote Controll body i bought at Kmart (had to buy the whole thing) and proceded to cut it up , well to start with it was suposed to be a 1/16 but more like a 1/20 or what but i dont know but here we go . Its not preety so far but we will get there . more td pm TDPM. 024.jpg 112.41K 109 downloads more td pm TDPM. 025.jpg 111.76K 130 downloads more td pm TDPM. 026.jpg 101.87K 111 downloads more td pm TDPM. 034.jpg 105.86K 139 downloads more td pm TDPM. 039.jpg 120.65K 121 downloads I am wanting to build a car campained by George Lazcanos (Lazcanos Racing) you can see photos on the Web it is an awsome machine .

Hi thanks for the kind words and i will do my best to turn it into a killer 350Z . A few more photos after chopping the roof and adding some plastic in front of the windscrean and a bit more sanding to ready it for Bondo. In Australia we call it BOG . Thanks for all the replies and i will do my best to turn it into a killer 350Z . The hardest part will be building the Nissan V6 all the rest of the running gear is close to P/M . If its okay i thought i would put in 1 or 2 photos of a 29 Ford Woody I built about 10 years ago cause i love A Model Fords . I own a 29 Roadster P/UP Street Rod thanks Darryl. pm seat brackets 002.jpg 130.25K 32 downloads pm seat brackets 005.jpg 127.69K 42 downloads pm seat brackets 006.jpg 74.88K 43 downloads pm seat brackets 008.jpg 87.58K 46 downloads finishing PM chassis 050.jpg 139.81K 47 downloads finishing PM chassis 053.jpg 146.14K 36 downloads
When i do this type of work i use a lot of ZAP ( zap a gap ) glue with Bicarb Soda it works quick and hard as a rock and bondo stickes to it good too see ya.

I think I'm good at body work but wouldn't have the ability to pull this off. I doubt if 99% of the other model builders could either.

Hi guys just a couple of photos for a question I would like to ask about is do you think the rear wing on the back is the style for this car or should i go to a different style like a bigger Pro Mod . The wing is in its early stages would look better cleaned up . I would appreciate your feedback thanks Darryl. 350 Z pro compact 036.jpg 77.78K 23 downloads 350 Z pro compact 033.jpg 94.32K 34 downloads

I did not realise till i was posting these photos that the front of the car was not long enough in the front section between the wheelarches . I thought their was something wrong as it did not look right in proportion to the rest of the body . You can see the difference in this photo of my other car I did the body on a 1/25 350 Z . P.S. This has been on the back bench for some time . 350 Z pro compact 028.jpg 91.68K 51 downloads
