Another model done. this time its a Datsun 240zg. a very cool kit by Hasegawa. A very different build from me since i love my shiny cars but in matt green it does look good. 

kit: hasegawa datsun 240zg
paint: tamiya as 14 olive green and matt black bonnet. decals and metal number plates.
interior: tan and black. ferrari 599 seats, flocking, carbon bits on the dash and spare wheel.
