Hi just starting work on a new Drag Car but first i have to build the body and that is no easy task as you cant find much of it around . So i started with a Remote Controll body i bought at Kmart (had to buy the whole thing) and proceded to cut it up , well to start with it was suposed to be a 1/16 but more like a 1/20 or what but i dont know but here we go . Its not preety so far but we will get there .post-11581-0-74731900-1363592243_thumb.jpost-11581-0-87239600-1363592339_thumb.jpost-11581-0-44185400-1363592410_thumb.jpost-11581-0-59386500-1363592532_thumb.jpost-11581-0-83396700-1363592612_thumb.j I am wanting to build a car campained by George Lazcanos (Lazcanos Racing) you can see photos on the Web it is an awsome machine . Well i will do my best as i have already done a 1/25 scale body of a 350Z , its just bigger hay see ya .

Hi thanks for the kind words and i will do my best to turn it into a killer 350Z . A few more photos after chopping the roof and adding some plastic in front of the windscrean and a bit more sanding to ready it for Bondo. In Australia we call it BOG . Thanks for all the replies and i will do my best to turn it into a killer 350Z . The hardest part will be building the Nissan V6 all the rest of the running gear is close to P/M . If its okay i thought i would put in 1 or 2 photos of a 29 Ford Woody I built about 10 years ago cause i love A Model Fords . I own a 29 Roadster P/UP Street Rod thanks Darryl.post-11581-0-19035500-1363963904_thumb.jpost-11581-0-04472700-1363964052_thumb.jpost-11581-0-94853500-1363964128_thumb.jpost-11581-0-08385200-1363964227_thumb.jpost-11581-0-16955600-1363964355_thumb.jpost-11581-0-41076500-1363964456_thumb.j

When i do this type of work i use a lot of ZAP ( zap a gap ) glue with Bicarb Soda it works quick and hard as a rock and bondo stickes to it good too see ya.

SWEEEEEEEETTTTT!!!!

I think I'm good at body work but wouldn't have the ability to pull this off. I doubt if 99% of the other model builders could either.

Hi guys just a couple of photos for a question I would like to ask about is do you think the rear wing on the back is the style for this car or should i go to a different style like a bigger Pro Mod . The wing is in its early stages would look better cleaned up . I would appreciate your feedback thanks Darryl.post-11581-0-92243500-1364082452_thumb.jpost-11581-0-24584000-1364082627_thumb.j

I did not realise till i was posting these photos that the front of the car was not long enough in the front section between the wheelarches . I thought their was something wrong as it did not look right in proportion to the rest of the body . You can see the difference in this photo of my other car I did the body on a 1/25 350 Z . P.S. This has been on the back bench for some time .post-11581-0-20790400-1364083325_thumb.j
