This is my detailed build of the reissued Datsun 510 BRE kit. The build thread is here. http://www.modelcars...showtopic=91937 Paint is Tamiya Italian Red over Pure White with TS15 Blue in the engine bay and underside. The kit oil and radiator lines were replaced with aluminum AN fittings and braided line. Kit chrome was stripped and sprayed with Alclad. A fair amount of correcting and massaging went into this kit to make it a little more authentic (removing molded-in windshield wipers, for example) and to clean up the flaws inherent in a kit produced from a 40-year-old tool. Overall I think it looks pretty sharp. Next Revell just needs to rerelease the 240Z!

I've got one to complete and now, I'd be ashamed to show it here after looking at your build. Beautiful!

Pretty well. The kit doesn't make 'em easy, and the design's pretty complicated to begin with. I just realized I forgot to include a pic of the rear end... here it is!

I knew they were molded in, so I wanted to see how you did yours. Those are the best I've seen!

I made mine with the solid bezel, instead of the reflectors. I think I need to go back and fix mine, now. <_<   A lot of people just keep making it a solid red lens.

Wow!  Beautiful Build!  I always thought these little race cars still kept their windshield wipers, but guess I was incorrect about that!
