Datsun 240z
show user profile  Westcoast13
Finally got round to making start on this. I was going to follow the 356 tut that JPJ's done, but i thought i'd do something different. Its been ages since i've modelled anything like this, and i feel like a complete noob again. I've got modellers block. Here is a screenshot of the first polys, hopefully this thread will encourage me to finish the project!

Ah the 240z. Introduced in '70 or '71? not sure.
At the time many critics said Datsun (now Nissan) stole the design from the '62 Ferarri 250 GTO.
I don't see it personally but there is a resemblance.

I can see it, the 240z looks like a budget version! Still, a nice car in its own right i think! Can't remember any of that going on though, i was 10 years too late for that. ;)

I actually saw one of these sitting at a gas station last night. Haven't seen one in a long time. Interesting how i happened to see one and you come on with a wip.

A friend of mine had one in highschool. he spent all this time and money fixing it up and in the end did an fuggly blue Earl Scheib $99 paint job and f'd it all up.

looking forward to seeing this done.

I love these babies. Want to have one some day. Saw this one in the flesh at Japfest a few years ago. The nicest one I have ever seen. I'll upload some high res piccies I took of it for ya.
What an engine. It was from a twin turbo Soarer.

I've almost finished the modelling, just a couple of little tweaks and its done.

Here's a quick test render that i've done because i was bored of pushing polys. :)

I will do quite a few different shots of the car, this time i have modelled the rear as well as the front (which is something i didnt fully do with the spitfire!!).
