Hi just starting work on a new Drag Car but first i have to build the body and that is no easy task as you cant find much of it around . 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 .Attached File  more td pm TDPM. 024.jpg   112.41KB   109 downloadsAttached File  more td pm TDPM. 025.jpg   111.76KB   130 downloadsAttached File  more td pm TDPM. 026.jpg   101.87KB   112 downloadsAttached File  more td pm TDPM. 034.jpg   105.86KB   139 downloadsAttached File  more td pm TDPM. 039.jpg   120.65KB   122 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.Attached File  pm seat brackets 002.jpg   130.25KB   32 downloadsAttached File  pm seat brackets 005.jpg   127.69KB   42 downloadsAttached File  pm seat brackets 006.jpg   74.88KB   43 downloadsAttached File  pm seat brackets 008.jpg   87.58KB   46 downloadsAttached File  finishing PM chassis 050.jpg   139.81KB   47 downloadsAttached File  finishing PM chassis 053.jpg   146.14KB   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.

SWEEEEEEEETTTTT!!!!

 

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.Attached File  350 Z pro compact 036.jpg   77.78KB   23 downloadsAttached File  350 Z pro compact 033.jpg   94.32KB   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 .Attached File  350 Z pro compact 028.jpg   91.68KB   51 downloads
