Lady In Blue Nissan S30 Fairlady Z
It’s feature Friday at ELP Modelling! Today we have a beautiful S30 Fairlady Z made by Chris Ijzerman. Shining so bright in Racing Blue from Tamiya over a set of Aoshima Tecchin wheels in champagne gold to really make them pop. This Fairlady has a look that will take your breath away.
Chris was aiming for a mix of bosozuko and race car style to create a stunning example of an old motorised kit. This meaning there is little to no chassis detailing, with space reserved in the interior for a small electric motor and two AA batteries.
This didn’t stop him from adding subtle but effective modifications such as a rear ground spoiler from a Hasegawa Mitsubishi Galant VR-4. At the opposite end Chris used the included light covers but smoothed them into the bodywork to accentuate the beautiful lines of this iconic Japanese classic that really took my breathe away.
As many of you already know, I’m a huge Nissan fan, and I don’t think I’ve seen a Fairlady look as good Chris’ example. He would happily build another one despite the lack of details with it being a fun kit to build, and rating the whole experience a solid 10 out of 10. A real testament to being able to create something stunning from a kit that isn’t known for its quality on the whole. Well done Chris and thank you for submitting this oh so subtle but effect take on the classic Datsun.
