Nissan 300ZX by Tamiya

21 November 2014 - 01:59 AM

The one build where almost everything went flawlessly....almost. Then the black basecoat bled through after I applied the clear. Too soon perhaps. The Nissan is lightly tweaked. Slight lowering of the front, added a hand made chin spoiler and smoothed the rear spoiler for a more fluid look. Currently has the left hand drive setup but thinkgin of going for the right hand drive.

The engine has a few molded in parts. Needed to clear up some of that. An actual 300ZX engine isn't pretty to look at. The piping looks wrong here, in fact it's kinda incomplete on these Tamiya models, but oh well. I wish I could have added different wheels but where I'm from, kinda difficult to get parts. THe best I could do is give it a satin black finish.

Overall, this is a wonderful kit by Tamiya with everything providing excellent fit.
