Classic, but often overlooked sportscar, with more than a hint of the contemporary Italian offerings.
You've done a great job on this, love the colour!!BowThumbs Up

Very, very nice!!!!!!

I have an old Otaki kit of that car in 1/16 scale. I have wondered about ever building it because I've never actually seen one built. Your is a beautiful example. Makes me able to see the car with its wire wheels and '60s personna.

Thanks for posting that.

Great model of a great car. Thanks fot sharing it with us. It is one of my "icon" cars and I´m glad to see so many other sharing this passion.

In my "unbuilt" list, I have:
1/16 early version (Fujimi)
1/24 winner 24h Fuji (Hasegawa)
The same as above, with Studio 27 decals, for a version of the Shelby SCCA racer
1/24 stock 67 version (Hasegawa) - it will be choped, and wire-wheeled, to make a version of the James Bond car in "You Only Live Twice"
1/24 "racer" (Nichimo) - generic racer (large fenders, bonnet straps,...).

I´m also longing to make a version of the Speed Trials car (the yellow/green car).

Nice stash! I amazed no one has made decals for the Speed Trials car, I would like to do that one also.

I have the ARII and Nichimo kits which are both pretty good but the Hasegawa is best. I also have the 1/25 MPC kit of the Bond car, it's nice for it's era but I like 1/24 so I will probably do a conversion like you.

I also built a wide body version that is either a Nichimo or maybe Doyshua which I built as a phantom racer, will post pics later.

I´ll be waiting to see your racer. The Speed Trial car will make an interesting subject. There are quite some pictures of this car, but somehow they allways seem unclear. (Plus an Ebbro 1/43, also a reference).

Some links on the 2000 GT:

Sorry, pressed the wrong button...

I was saying: each one has very interesting links; you´ll probably allready know it, but it won´t hurt.
