Hi My name is Johnny and im from Australia.
When i was a kid LEGO was my favourite toy.
Had few kilograms of the early 80s space legoland and some technic sets.
Was always building boats planes cars and trucks even Star Wars X wing long before Lego released it.
Many years have gone past and love for lego has been kinda lost and love towards real cars grew bigger.
Recently the love of lego returned.My original Lego was long gone and lost but have bought few sets like 8671 430 Spider, 4895 motion Power and a little technic set Highway Bandit from which this car was created.I have collected most of my childhood lego and expanded it lot more than ever before.
I love the early Z car 240z 260Z and have few from 1:64 to 1:1 Scale real cars. but wanted one in LEGO
This was my first attempt at it which took about one day to put together.
At the time was built out of the three sets mentioned above so limited parts bin.
Not as good as some wicked creations ive seen here but ill improve as my lego collection since has grown quite a bit.
Also my photography has long way to catch up.
About this creation
Being the first attempt and having only few pieces i think ive captured few of the key features of a Z car. The long bonnet sloping cabin, fender mirrors.
Also some features like forward opening bonnet, side wents and the 3pod guage cluster on
The real Z car has 6 cyl but only having one cylinder in my stock ive incorporated into the engine with spining fan blade (technic steering wheel)just as an extra functional ghimic.
The Power functions from 4895 have also been stuffed in. the motor is at the front where it should be with the diff and batteries at the back. It can only go forward and backwards no steering.
Since my collection has grown this Z has been dismantled and plan for a bigger and more function technic one will be on the way. Also it will be IR RC.
got 559 and F1 and various other technic sets that will hopefully be put together as a 240Z.
But till then i got to learn a lot from you guys here and to improve my photography skill too.
