1990 NISSAN 300ZX

Recommended Posts

Started this build a few weeks ago,Fujimi's 300zx,i have Tamiya's version which is way better.But fujimi's version has removable T-Tops and the rear spoiler is separate and the lower bumper is separate.:)So I decided to build a non-turbo car,color is going to be Tamiya TS-16 Yellow.IMG_1592.thumb.JPG.fdf11fc30776a616332f29e199dbd712.JPGIMG_1603.thumb.JPG.a8fddfb71385f1378d631f89fe13b063.JPG

I was going to steal the lower front bumper from fujimi's convertible,but I thought I would try to modify the turbo bumper first.I used evergreen styrene strips .015 x.030 and superglue and putty.IMG_1601.thumb.JPG.78aba270a7d436b22d7df74581e03a8d.JPGIMG_1602.thumb.JPG.737bf3414fa98bff771fb52bfdfa6271.JPG

So I let the bumper sit for a couple days and after some careful sanding I got a decent result:D,the blue bumper is the painted fujimi part and my modified part in gray.OPHY9659.thumb.JPG.e41397fb2dfaf1b3bdaf3c9eb86e6b57.JPG

following.. i have the exact same kit and applied the same tamiya paint, but i did a bad job and after such a long time i just got it out and decide to strip the old paint.

 

btw, which mini kit is that in your signature?  only one i managed to find was from a Korean brand.

just a small update the seats are taking shape,and the first half of the interior is painted I went with a radome tan/dark tan scheme didn't care for the grey/dark grey interiors I kept finding.I also added a door handle on the passenger side using some half round styrene,and a couple small styrene bits on the drivers side to represent power window buttons.IMG_1634.thumb.JPG.729b15b8607e1b00f3f4d533d770d6b1.JPGIMG_1636.thumb.JPG.8f233b64def69191f05335731a210991.JPGIMG_E1637.thumb.JPG.db0cd7cdd667e2c4b233df6afb14da9f.JPG

Great job, I really don't understand the open seatbacks found in most Fujimi kits.....

great progress! I guess you have clear coated over the Tamiya aerosol?

No,the real color on the 1:1 is yellow pearlglow I have some Tamiya pearl clearcoat in my stash.I just can't decide if I should use it or leave the car as it is.
