Datsun 240Z
A jumbomega scale Datsun. With working goodies. Lots and lots of working goodies. Lots. And. Lots.
About this creation


New from Chinchilla Motors! This Logo! Er... wait, that's not right.










Here we are! This chassis! Hang on...










Getting closer...
















Almost there....















Blam! Datsun! In your face 90's power!















The front. I don't really know what to say about this. Normally that would indicate I had nothing to talk about. This time it's a different story...















... you see, while there is a ton of stuff to talk about, the Datsun currently sits in shambles.... I tried rolling it down the driveway. And the back axle fell apart. And then the back fell apart with it. =(
















Needless to say I wasn't dumb enough to try such lunacy BEFORE taking pics. So here's all the pics with a minty fresh Datsun.
















Steering is good though. And it will roll, unlike it's behemoth predecessors. It just rolls too quickly. Yeah, I'll go with that. My car is TOO good. *facepalm*
















The C-pillars were tricky, they hold up the whole roof so they must be sturdy.
















I also smoothed out the license plate this time. Japanese flag with the usual nickname on it. LAD.
















No hawks to take the aerial view, so I just stood up.
















More standing, there were also lots of deer. Some sparring. Terrifying to be near such a spectacle with my precious Datsun.
















Everything open.
















Door handles, which aren't new.
















They just open differently from the ones I usually see.
















The trunk, rather shallow. But that's only because....
















...More stuff space things! Room for a spare tire, the car jack, and a peg thingy for operating the car-jack.
















I forgot to put the tire in though. I've checked, it fits, it's just part of a motorcycle right now.
















Real car-lifting action! Also note my amazing hubcaps, with real hubcap action.
















A big I6 engine, with some pistons. I only have 2 technic square pistons, so these odd things are there instead. They lock up though, so I do need to get some good old square pistons.
















Here you can kind of see the double linear transmission. Just 2 linear 2 speeds next to one another and operate by 1 linkage. Earth-shattering for me, technic builders are probably laughing. =P
















Battery, a bit worn out because I forget to turn it off. =/
















The headlights... need a better pic.
















Like this one, from a while back.














The taillights, unfortunately I cannot magically procure a pic of the taillights.
















At this point I need new batteries for the camera, so I went inside. I took this pic from the window 2 stories up. Big Datsun is tiny now. =P
















The interior! With 2 colors!!! Amazing!!!
















Light up console
















Light up speedo.
















I told you there were deer.
















New seat design, more supportive. They recline, move about.
















Two seats are better than one.
















Neutral...
















...1st gear...
















...2nd gear...
















...3rd gear... for whatever reason I lost the pic of 4th gear. It's just like a regular shifter though.
















Parking brake, which is never to be turned off on a hill ever again. The design works nicely, but the differential is old and occasionally explodes on steep hills. (about 25 degrees)
















The light switch, which also activates the windshield wipers. The working windshield wipers. Oh, I went there. >=D (maybe a vid later, we'll see)























Nice glovebox that clunks open and close. Lots of space, too.
















The pedals, which are sprung as usual for such a scale. You can also see the technic lever. I originally planned to have a pneumatic hood popper, but eventually my pneumatic needs shifted and I needed all my cylinder for... other things. =)
















Random views.... enjoy.
















































And by the way: Go support De Tomaso's Bird Project!
















One last random view
















Poor Datsun....
















And here's the carjack, actually being useful as opposed to a show-toy. Kind of cool, maybe the silver lining on the Datsun being broken.
















Thank you so very much for visiting! And just remember... don't roll your Legos down the driveway. Ever. Just don't do it. Don't come crying to me if you do and they break. I'll have no sympathy, I warned you. You're probably getting your cars out right now. I bet you think you'll roll them around the driveway all day long with no problem. You'll see, driveways are a menace. A menace I say! Oh right... I'm supposed to keep the ending bit short. Right.


!!!Thanks for viewing!!!

Gorgeous job!! It is really fantastic! With windows wipers! One question: what's was/is the weight of it? I have a pochet Ferrari at about this scale and it is about 10kg. But it is metal and here Legos . 8-) 5/5

Excellent car. I love Nissans (although Skylines are my faves). I'm working on trying to build cars. Its tough when you have no tires, so mine are not worth taking pics of. Plus there is no color scheme as I have a mess of Legos. Kudos on everything. I'm amazed.

i don't think Technic builders will be laughing .working windscreen wipers ? operated by A BUTTON? this is incredible and i would build at this scale but A) i don't have enough pieces of one colour , so it would be multi-coloured. B)it would look terrible because my lack of. peices C)i only have two wheels this scale.

it s funny to see your work station, it s loaded, lol! I m also amazed at the scale you build, in this context, the scale really digs in... it s not such a good idea for me to see your cars, as, I d like to attempt a project like that one day, I never built as big, ever, but, maybe half, when I was young, great choice of model too, very cool!

Looks excellent and massive! To bad you had to go and destroy it on your driveway. Must be a record, that is. Car goes down the drive way Blam! Off with the back axle! And then Off with the back of the car! Then off with a great MOC!

Quoting Alex B Hey Senator, It's MOCvember! I also come with a question, how long do your big model stay together?
These usually stay together about two weeks. This one definitely not coming apart as I lost power last week. =/ Not sure what to do next anyway. I want it to move around, though.

I'm greatly impressed by the sheer scale of this model. I'm pretty sure most Zs of this age have fallen to bits too. Time to try a 120Y?

The features for this super-omega jumbo car are terrific as usual, my favorite are the windshield wipers and door handles. I'm also stunned at well you make the studs look, especially at curves such as at the headlights. Beautiful.

Gimongous and Hunormous I love your Mahoosive cars and this is immensley good, rear view is my favourite, the lights are excellent. Loving the curving and sculpting on the front lights. I'd love to have a go at one of these but I'm too busy with birds at the moment. Sorry for pestering you about the 240Z lol it worked though ;-) Looking forward to more Chinchilla motors!

I say this as the largest of compliments, Nick Barret, and Tom have NOTHING on you! A car like this clearly shows that you are one of the best around, with that said, I am going to time travel back to 1981, and pick me up one of these bad boys! Z

Holy moly. This is incredible! Your best car yet and probably car if the year too (yes, even against that Ferrari 250!). It looks a bit fragile, but heck it's worth it! Sooo many features, the usual excellent Technic ones and then some- those wipers are awesome! Ah, the pain of exploding diffs, I know that : ( Hopefully you'll fix it up soon- an opportunity to make it stronger me thinks. Anyways, 11/10, because 10's not enough : )

Whoaaa! I saw the thumbnail and thought why would anyone post a real car here and then I realized it is just a perfect build that's going on here. Oh My God! This thing should've been blogged all over the famous www LEGO blogs. Pretty accurate shape, I love to see that old school look and what really caught my attention here are the hubcaps on those wheels. I never thought of using those parts the way you did here. Total bravo!

Best car of Moctober. It is very big! impressive features, and great details. Working door handles and working wipers. What else could you ask for? My friend had one of these.. had a hole in the floor because of rust. You know, my cars zoom down the driveway fine, it's the ditch off the side that they don't like too much.

Wow! Where to start ...? First thing I notice is your treatment of the headlight nacelles - masterfully done and better than I managed with the same feature on the MGB. The size is impressive, but more important is the shape; it's perfect! All the extra technical details you added are the icing on this very tasty cake.

As always, amazing. I like pretty much all of it, but the dials using minifig hands really made an impression on me. Good job!
