Recently reissued 1/25th MPC kit. Fiddly in spots and the side bed pieces were so warped, that I had to glue the tailgate shut and rubber band them all together.

Modifications as followed:

L28ET SOHC I6 Turbo engine swap from an AMT Datsun 280ZX Turbo

Exhaust tip from AMT 4th Gen F-body kits

Bucket seats and steering wheel from Revell Datsun 240z. Steering Wheel gauge is kit's custom part and shifter is from unknown source

Kit's leaf springs were warped and the left one was snapped on the tree. Kit's rear axle was used with custom 4 link like setup with rear springs.

Wheels and tires are custom pieces from a wheels parts baggie of an unknown Revell subject purchased at a swap meet long ago. Brakes were from a AMT '67 Mustang, wheels were painted Rustoluem Metallics Pure Gold

Interior paint is Rustoluem Advanced Formula Flat Brown; exterior paint is Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue under Rustoluem Aluminum cleared with Pledge.

I like the engine swap and all of the other features you used from the other kits. You can believe someone could do a 1:1 in just the same manor. great looking paint work also.
