Old skool tuner Datsun 280 ZX
Posted by kustommodeller1.2 on Sunday, May 24, 2020 11:56 PM

Howdy. This is AMT Datsun 280ZX turbo. Built with the custom front air dam in the kit, wheels from a Revell Honda Civic Si coupe, and a subwoofer from a kit I cant remember...... I shaved off the side marker lamps for a smoother body line, and it has some detail master photo etch interior junk. (CDs, keys, some sun glasses, the little tree air freshener hanging from the mirror.)

Molded in red, it was primed with Duplicolor Dark Grey primer, and top coated with Duplicolor Honda Arctic Silver, cleared and polished. BMF trim. Hope you likeYes

Lovely job on that silver!

In the pattern: Lots in my stash. But let's close out the SOD and do the 1/350 Enterprise I started a few years ago.
