Datsun 240Z Monte Carlo

I've just completed an Ocar kit bought off eBay a couple of years ago.  This is a classic Datsun 240Z, modelled on the one driven by R. Aaltonen and J. Todt which came 3rd in the Rallye Monte-Carlo in January 1972.  The original car, pictured below, is maintained in the Nissan Heritage Collection.

The kit comprises resin bodyshell, metal parts for bumpers, lights, decals, plastic interior and windows.  I put it with a PCS chassis, a fast Scalextric motor and some suitable wheels.

The paint and decals went on well although I'm disappointed by the finish after applying the varnish.

This has always been a favourite car since I owned a diecast version as a child.  And the slot car version runs great.
