  1. Few more pics. Weathering was done with layers of washes, crushed pastels, and dry brushing. There are a few good videos on YouTube that I used. Between a few of the steps I would spray a light coat of flat clear to seal everything in. This is by far my favorite body. I can’t drive it with my 7 and 11 year old with their cars. I have a basher car I use so we can have some fun! next project will be an XV-01 integrale that will get the full treatment as well. Can’t wait.
  2. I know this thread is four years old, but I recently added some more weathering, as well as some custom mud flaps. Been driving her more lately after being a shelf queen for a few years. I purchased another Datsun body so I can try another paint scheme. I can swap back and forth depending on the type of driving I’m doing that day. This car is a head turner wherever it goes.
  3. It all depends on the terrain you’re driving in. The higher clearance the better, but the stock high setting should work for light off road. There are lots of tire/rim choices on eBay. I chose mine because they are the most scale looking of all the tires I’ve seen. The traction isn’t the best, but it is fine for bashing around.
  4. Was thinking an M chassis or something would work good.
  5. First run is in the books. A really fun car to drive, just like the 240z is. Suspension was dang near perfect, going to leave it alone. Not surprising, since it is the same chassis as the 240z, with the same mods, and that one is dialed in nicely. Will try and get a video up at some point.
  6. I think it would look great with a nice weathering job, but this is the Mrs. car...and she wants it clean. At some point I need to figure out how to light the rally lamps without having unsightly wires hanging out the back ruining the scale appearance. I’m very happy with the build, and can’t wait to get started on my Audi Quattro whenever they come in.
  7. The Porsche 911 rally is complete! First run is imminent...
  8. My next build will be the new Audi Quattro rally whenever they are released here in the states. When I was a kid I had a matchbox car (1982) of this exact car. Will try and reproduce the livery when the time comes. My five year old now likes to drive it around
  9. Found a good scale looking tire for the wide Porsche rear rims. I ordered these on fleabay thinking they were the same as the set I have mounted on there now, only to find out they are slightly different. These tires are slightly wider and taller by a few mm. You can see the height difference here, but it’s not bad. From the top you can see the difference in tread pattern. I have the tire mounted on the wide Porsche rim here, and as you can see it fits fine. Might be an option for someone down the road instead of new rims like I did.
  10. Yes, the masking is on the outside for when I shot the clear coat. The edges of the windows I used Tamiya masking tape, and for the middle I used just regular painters tape. I tried to keep it a mm or so away from the edge of the window trim decal so the clear coat would seal the edges of the stickers.
  11. Cockpit is mounted and preliminary body height adjustments have begun.
  12. The cockpit is done. My painting skills are atrocious and I am glad it will be inside and somewhat hard to see...lol. Came out good though, I’m pleased with the overall appearance.
  13. Some more painting today. A before and after of the matte clear. I like it for a few reasons. It gets rid of the toy like appearance of the body, it seals the edges of the decals to prevent dirt from getting under them and lifting, and lastly it seals the orange paint which is painted on the outside of the body.
