Of course, it's a bit of a tight squeeze.

Oh shut up :P

Josh: Sp33dy grabbed it from his local KMart for me, as I couldn't find it any of the ones near me. They're on eBay though, if you search for "Jada 240z" :)

The Jada toys are 1:24. They're not very accurate or high quality but are cool :P No van, you can't have my dishy dish dish!

van
30-07-07, 10:38 PM
Aww damn you.

Have you cut out the rust on that WIP S30 yet? Hehe.

Alfadog

haha yea the body was fairly solid to begin with ... but the floor was completely gone :P had to weld in a whole new floor... but this is common with Z's.

Finally got the engine built tho!! Actually this was 2 years ago. It's funny because this thing has taken me sooo long, I think I started in 2004. Most is built now, but just have to paint the shell before going further. I'm not very good at painting shells tho so keep putting it off.

Great Detail you put into this. What scale is it? 1:18? You are using any aditional photo etched parts?

I just started modelkits again after a almost 15 year-break. Why did I stop back then. Its great fun!

van
31-07-07, 10:25 AM
God, that is one detailed engine!!

31-07-07, 08:33 PM
lol...was waiting for this

does that engine run Alfadog?

Alfadog
31-07-07, 10:51 PM
pshh nah of course it doesn't run - can't you see? No coil!

It's actually 1:12, pretty big.

Buddah
01-08-07, 12:00 AM
yeah looks pretty big judging by your taiyama paint in the background, man that engine is so well painted.... much props to you

i have a panda 86 i was making, but i've screwed up on the paint, so i've kind of given up on it.
