INST3D,

I remember seeing pictures of Z cars, 240, 260 and probably 280 that were taken when the cars were on a rotisserie with everything stripped off. The best ones I think for doing drawings were painted (or coated) all one color. I just looked on the web searching for "240Z rotisserie" to see if I could find a picture like that but no luck. I am still looking in my own Z car picture collection though I am sure I have one just can't find it. Somewhere there is a picture that will help you.

You may want better pictures from different angles. Some of these aren't as clear as I would think you might want. Best I can find now. Apologies to whoever took these pictures, I don't remember where I got them.

I think there is a person on this site who can explain how it is constructed:is the turn covered or does it even exist on the bottom

INST3D,

If I am interpreting your question correctly that turn does not exist on the bottom as the driveshaft tunnel just continues back and gets smaller. You can see the continuation of the tunnel in my car looking down into the stowage area. I can't get better pictures from the bottom as my car's driveshaft/ exhaust are in the car at this time. Maybe someone else has a close up of the bottom area?

Mike

Finally have a little free time to work on the model again. Added some more detail to the block. Getting the head and valve cover started as well. May even get to some suspension components over the holidays. Ten days off, Wooo Hoooo:laugh:

I love drawings and have thought for a long time there should be 3D drawings of the Z car in Autocad. It is a lot of fun for me to see the results you, motorman7 and you, INST3D are getting! This is one of those things I get excited about.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the feedback. It's nice to see the progress. The more detail that gets added, the better it looks. The head is a bit of a challenge. Lots of crevices. This is fun as long as I do just an hour here and there. More time than that and it starts turning in to work. It will be way cool when we can start assembling the major components.

Best regards,

Rich

I would enjoy seeing a video of how you two, motorman7 and INST3D make those drawings but I might be the only one interested in the creation process. heh heh. Nice work! I can see an engine number plate and frame rails. I can respect this work since I did a drawing of parts of the 240Z a while back that doesn't look as nice.

I was making a video in the beginning.When the recordings took 70 hours and about 200gb of disc space I understood that making videos was not a good idea and deleted them all :)

Rear deck photos of HLS30U-00026. Three holes in the rear bulkhead. That's about as 'series one' as one can get!

In the grand scheme of differentiating between series 1 and series 2 cars, my car probably isn't A-typical but thought I would add to show the vague transitional differences. This bulkhead in my 1/71 series 1 car, one of the very last series 1 cars, has two pressed square indentations, not holes, with the two tool cover securing tabs above these indentations as shown in 26th-z attached pics.

Youtube deleted the video....I will try to add it somewhere else later this day

Upload it to our site in our media center, I'd love to host it for you. I've allowed file uploads so give it a shot. Please let me know if it doesn't work and I'll fix it.

100th post

We already have 1/3 of chassis modelled.

Thank you guys for helping and following,we wouldn't have achieved this progress without you.

Body photos are always welcome,as like as comments.

Big plans and only the most little part is made.Parallely working on an environment for renders,currently can't show it you.

post-27563-14150822363091_thumb.jpg

Anyone got suggestions about the video?
