... because its shape was basically copied from a Ferrari but I do prefer Nissan's front end styling.

Great subject.   240-260-280 body is classic.   Remember them around town.

Thanks for the compliment, I know what you mean, it's not a simple kit and since I intend to add more detail I'm sure I'm in for a struggle.
More done on this.

More done to the 240Z want to add more detail to the bulkhead but the way they have moulded it (half of the bulkhead is on the body) I will have to wait till I add the body.

Gads is looking good with tool cabinet, engine on stand, and the 240.   Fine attention to details  :smiley:
Vaguely remember looking at parked 240 when they were new (1969?).   Was similar dark blue with black interior.
