Progress* GT4 Z33 Z Tune

I liked my Extreme Z so much that I decided to build the car that inspired it, the Z Tune Z33 from the GT4 game. Starting with the Tamiya 350Z kit I had to cut off the nose and side skirts so they could be replaced with the Scale Auto Style resin NISMO Z kit. The hood vents were cut from one of SAS's resin Skyline hoods.

You can see my progress so far...still have to clean up those resin parts then glue them on and fix all the panel lines.

Got the Nismo package glued on....have a lot of work to do around the vents and panel lines now.

There is a correct rear spoiler too which isn't pictured.

Very nice so far, but there's something weird about those front bonnet vents.

i agree the front seems to rise too much out of the hood and the back sinks...i assume its because the skylinge hood's curve is much more gradual? the rest is fantastic though

You're both right, the curvature is a bit off but once I have them molded in and all that section is black or carbon fiber it won't be that noticable.

Cool. Just a couple of questions. Are u putting the Fairlady Z logo? Isn't the Front grille a little too small?

Heres a link to the Z33 Z-Tune:
