  1. 1971 Datsun 240ZG aka LSZ

    So, this is kinda new to me, don't recall ever finishing a build and adding it here. lol Tamiya 1:12 Datsun 240Z.....with a twist. LS3 motor printed by Shapeways, drawn by a good friend. Custom Queensland registration plates printed on my home computer. Also added a Queensland Transport "mode plate" into the engine bay to cover the motor swap. Enjoy. Thanks for stopping by, the whole build process can be viewed here. Greg
  2. 1:12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG - LS3

    Thanks so much Jim, Ashley, Dan and Oscar. Well, paint got sprayed, though not entirely happy with it, I am happy. Been way too long since my last large scale....lol Also made some of my own decals for it. New exhaust getting a trial fit. New completed photos will be in the gallery section shortly. Thank you for stopping by.
  3. 1:12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG - LS3

    Anticipated there may be an issue fitting the hood....but I had a contingency plan. Finally on four wheels... And with the over-fenders fitted. Hoping to get some colour thrown at it in the coming weeks. Comments and critique welcome, thanks for looking.
  4. 1:12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG - LS3

    Some mods were made to the manifold before installation... Ready to drop in... Wheels and tyres freshly made by a good friend in Japan. All 3D created, cast in resin. Continued....
  5. 1:12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG - LS3

    Hey guys, been a while since I last visited, still gluing parts and no, still not completed a build in about 7 or 8 years..... This particular Datto was started around 3 years, eight months ago....It's been an idea of mine ever since I saw a real one get built. The "other 3" are still in a holding pattern.... Heart of the build is of course, an LS3 motor. Had to make all the accessories as mine was the first motor sold and it was before all the extras were drawn up...Oh well, good practice. New OBX cross-ram manifold. Exhaust headers custom made... Continues....
  6. 1/12 Tamiya Datsun 240ZG

    Still one of my favourite builds Jim, love this car so much. Outstanding finish on the paint work too.
  7. 1/12 Camaro Pro Street and Twin Turbo Touring 69

    Hey Ralphy, I'm back. The green beast looks amazing on here mate, the pics are nice and easy to see.
  8. Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See, I knew you could get this done without me hovering over your shoulder all the time. I have no words mate, only reason you're seeing this is because I still have limited use of a couple o fingers......can barely type anyway, hard to make out the keys with all this dribble covering them. SUPER! Unbelievably ultra realistic build man.
  9. Well Chris, I was going to say, you just don't stop do you.....but reading thru what I've missed I can see you've had your share of drama and issues along the way mate. So pleased you're over the hump now and are back on it bud. Everything...........EVERYTHING looks just mind blowing, ridiculously over the top, super-duper AMAZING!!! Congrats on your determination and will to strive, to achieve this goal of #1 (which is right where you're heading, trying or not ) BTW, I'll be planning a trip over in about 5 years......I expect to see this sitting in your display case on TOP SHELF!!
  10. 1969 Yenko Camaro WIP

    Watching and waiting here too Jordan, looks like a beautiful car you've chosen to replicate. I'd be interested in seeing the wheels when you get them done too, I have a "stock" Yenko on the go at the moment. Another guy has made (3D) some similar wheels, but they're not exactly the same as these.... Any chance you could attempt some "period correct" Good Years in F60 and G60 ?? THAT, would look truly amazing.
  11. Revell 1/12 camaro

    Binning stuff?? Ok, I can take the Camaro AND the rod for you, will that help? Seriously, loving the Camaro Kenneth, the paint is just enough and doesn't look stock, and I really like your weathering technique...the under side and those exhaust headers look amazing mate. I'm a bit of a Camaro nut and love this build very much. Thumbs up!!
  12. Revell 1/8 ford 32 street rod

    Like it? Um, YEAH!! Great work Kenneth, I see someone said not to sell yourself short.....Man, this is the BEST graphic-paint work I've ever seen on a model, hands down. And just in case no one else tells you, I'll give you a couple of these....
  13. 1/12 69 Camaro ProMod

    Haha, yep..was hoping the mailman was going to bring a box of goodies today, but I guess he got side tracked. Maybe tomorrow. Then the work will begin in earnest.
  14. top dragster scratch build

    Dave, shouldn't you be working on a certain Camaro? Kidding of course... Man, I have missed so much in my absence and am truly amazed at what you've done here in the passed 12 months mate. AWESOME!!!
  15. 1/12 69 Camaro ProMod

    Thank you so much Scott, sorry for being away MIA for so long mate. Where does that time go........While I got you, any more thought to those amazing Dominators in 1/12th scale? Well, in the last 12 months I have given up my day job and become full-time carer for my Mum, she turned 95 in June this year. I thought I might get extra time for modelling, but it hasn't worked out that way so far. LOL In any case, being prepared for when that happens, I have been stock piling some parts. The "new" Camaro body I got from TDR is going to require a complete new chassis, the one I had made is too tall and the main roll hoop too fat.....Consequently, tearing it apart would be to ground level...solution, keep it to hang on workshop wall (1/12). I received an order from Plastruct the other day in preparation for this, so it will begin shortly. Deciding to stick with plastic (styrene) and not brass as I feel it will be easier to work...The motor has been fully stripped down as well in readiness for new paint and detailing. Several new bags of braid from Pro-Tech have also been sourced from Ted @ Teds model market place. New wheels and tyres are due to arrive any day now (newly 3D printed), along with a 3D Mountain motor - complete with tunnel ram and split Dominators. (note -- NOT for Camaro) And I weakened and got another 1/12 ProMod body...... a 63 Corvette. Wheelbase is a tad short at 108inch, but it should work ok.
