Datsun 240zg

I must admit I haven’t updated the blog due to time and work, but I told myself it is way over due.

So here is the next feature. Its my Datsun 240zg. Its a bit of a strange story how this build came to life but it did have a happy ending.I must be honest at first this car did not do anything for me but has grown on me since. While browsing the web for inspiration a certain matt green 240z grabbed my attention. There was something about the car’s stance, colour and shape that I liked a lot. I then decided to get myself a kit and do similar sort of build. But not knowing that there was a difference between the Z and ZG I went and bought the Hasegawa ZG kit. Upon arrival it looked a bit strange compared to what I had in mind. I then decided that some research was needed and I found out that there was in fact two types of Z cars. The more elegant ZG ( and extremely rare) and the Z. It was then that I decided that I would still carry on with the build but do it the way I would have liked one. So here it is…
