Hotwheel Custom 'Greddy' Nissan 350Z

Back by demand again on Custom GReddy on another japanese car Nissan 350Z by request of my friend Azreen. He has been patiently waited for almost 3 months as i've busy on others custom car. Anyway, there's slightly improvement on the custom compares to my previous works.

For the change, i've switched to gold colour wheels with rubber tyres and it turn out matching this 350Z and some slight improvement on the rear twin muffler by boring the inner holes outside the opening exhaust hole to make it more 'realistic look'.

Custom HW Datsun 240Z Wangan Midnight Devil Z

This is my custom Devil Z which i've done recently, the casting are from Hotwheel Datsun 240Z. Based in the japanese anime manga series Wangan Midnight Devil Z,this car is driven by Akio Asakura. I like this series, it's different from Initial D where we sees a lot of tuner car drifts on the mountain and this stories is about high speed adrenalin racing on japan highway.
This story gets its roots from the actual street racing that occurs on Tokyo's Shuto Expressway,one stretch of which is known as the "Wangan"— literally meaning "bay side" although it is generally used to refer
to the freeway — the longest, straightest road in the entire country.

This custom Devil Z are given blue coat of paints, rubber wheels added and rear steel twin mufflers.
