Completed; Nissan 350z

After making the WRX STi as my first model, I decided to follow peoples advise and make the 350z as my second project.
I have painted it in Nissan Chilli Pepper red, as this is my favorite colour that the Z comes in. Once again I learnt a lot of good lessons while building, the main problem I had was with painting the body. My first attempt just ended up with really bad orange peel, so I sanded it back and repainted the top coat. The bonnet and front of the roof are fine but the rest of the body is various quality, but it does not really show in the pictures.
I did consider completely stripping and starting again, but then decided to keep it as it is, so I can see how I improve model to model.

Here are some pictures
