I've had a bit of a forced break but now back and ready to go. I have made a start on a new model like the painting one i've used an old model built years ago and going to try give it a new life.So here is a few pics of this one and here's a link to that first one of a spray painter for anyone who didn't see www.kiwimodeller.com/index.php/forum/38-...inished?limitstart=0





and a comparison shot of a standard tamiya kit and my effort so far to show what they look like with lights bumper etc removed

Thanks guys still learning as i go with the scratch building so isn't 100% correct or scale but looks pretty good to my eye anyway. haven't done to much more to the car got a coat of primer on it to see where it needs some clean up before paint


Have been working away on the chassis machine though




and the clamps

the measuring gear


and a few with the car sitting on it before i primed it to see how it'll fit

Hey Yak. Great to see you back at it. I missed this a couple of days ago. Fantastic work on the chassis machine and the front of the 300. And if I was to get a classic car it would be an XB Falcon Coupe or a Z car. Love em too.

Thanks all, little bit of pressure now to get a good end result.

Grunzter yeah i've had the z bug for a long time i,ve had S130,Z31 and Z32 two seater turbos plus 2x S130 2+2 and a Z31 2+2 and still have a 240 which i hope to have back on the road later this year and when the young fella leaves home i'm getting a Z33 to park next to the 240. have lots of models and diecasts to. Shame youre selling your 280 is it a bob sharp racing rep? #33.

Grover the XA falcons are pretty cool but the 240Z is better :whistle:

Awesome work there Yak.
I guess you have the same machine where you work?
What do your workmates think when they see you measuring it up? ... or do they know what you're up to? :)

Thanks guys. No progress this week been away and had to buy some more evergreen plastic but hope to have an up date sometime this week.

Powder. I'm built like a yak but sneaky like a cat no one saw anything until i took the model to work the other day :)

Henry. I already got a small amount off the floor to use so it'll look authentic

Have managed a few hours on this today. First the gearbox






not sure why i bothered with the slave cylinder as when its in the car you cant see it :pinch: and also worked on the cross member and power steering rack




will make a sway bar out of wire later on once its glued back in the car. I'm starting to think this was a bad idea modern cars have so much in the engine bay compared to an old 50's 60's etc car. i might glue the bonnet back on so it looks like its being checked for correct gaps etc

The detail in this project is going to be pretty neat judging from we have seen so far.

I've done a little more with this.

bit more of the measuring gear

Some flanges for the exhausts


and got some blue back in the engine bay and masked for some red on some of the secondhand panels


SOOOOO much harder than masking the real ones :S

So have a bit of colour on now and next i'll try make them look like second hand panels with some sort of weathering. Can't tell in these pics but i have airbrushed a lighten red on the top of the guard and bumper to look sun faded which red often does. Have to paint the panel that goes between the headlights still. Will also start making more bits for the engine bay

I could never understand why some people have multiple models on the go, i've always just done one at a time start to finish. But with three on the go atm i think i now understand why. It's good to be able to put one down and do a little on another to have a bit of a break when they start to piss you off. Have done a little more to this today to have a break from the monster datsun.
Have made the back wall of the workshop using a sheet of grooved evergreen and some balsa wood for the 4x2 framing and door will add the window glass in once its painted






also made the damaged bonnett (looks like it hit a power pole) and a bit on the second hand bonnett
