Great conversion and a nice looking backdrop too. Where did this Maisto lack in quality?

<p>Thanks</p>
<p>I would say side window frames which I had to get them off, front grill and signal lights which are in one piece but credit to Maisto it's easy to work with no glued parts</p>

Datsun 240z is a great car. Used to see lots of them on the west coast in BC Canada when I was younger. Very nicely done and looks the part. I used to race against these at a track in South west BC. I had a TR 2+2 which was very fast but not as fast as the Datsun. Thanks for showing us more of your work. It looks great.

They were a great looking car , I have a few models by different manufacturers , I have a tin plate one some where which has a cord at the back number plate when pulled it powers a mechanism which moves the car along.
