VigorousZX 2012 kit build

Postby VigorousZX » Fri Feb 17, 2012 2:16 pm

This is my concept conversion kit for the ZX
Image

My previous concepts and prototypes
http://www.cardesignersandbuilders.com/ ... p=186#p186

I will take that 3D design and carve it out in my home built CNC machine which is 80% complete so far
Image
CNC build thread my-cnc-build-thread-testing-t546334.html
Once the kit is carved out in foam, I will make plastic panels out of them using a technique called vacuum forming.
Note the conversion will use 3-4 inch spacers on the wheels to widen the car and it may have a new hatch.

I have set no time line for this project but hopefully Ill finish the first one in two months.



Due to multiple censorships (kit and none kit related) in the Z32 section, Ive decided to keep to the test section for sometime.
One can also follow my project on Facebook fan pages. Imagehttp://www.facebook.com/AutoArts

:D
As soon as my CNC is complete, which is weeks away from finishing, I can start carving the kit.

I still havent decided on a design yet, so far its between these two

This is the design direction I'll be going with for the kit, Ferrari Italia look alike.

Since I need to test my CNC machine on a smaller model, I decided to make a 1/5 scale toy first... then I though I could possibly design a great a mid engine toy car and possibly get investors to fund a real size one.
So I designed and I designer... then the LaFerrari (new Enzo) was to come out and I wanted to use styling cues from it... thinking it was going to revolutionize the next decade of car design... but It wasnt as great as most expected.
Then I just kept designing and designing over and over again till I got to this (notice the ZX style tails)
Image


But Im still not satisfied... think of making some new changes.
Anyway I really didnt have a work shop to start machining any foam on until recently when I came into some money and bought a Van to setup a mobile space to get things rolling.
Image

Right now Im designing a modern Ferrari 355 for a kit car member... the Vigor should still look the same as the video... but I may change the headlights to the Ferrari 575 square style so that I wont have any legal problems at the DMV using the stock ZX ones... or I'll fit the stocks ones into the new Corvette headlight shape so that I can upgrade to those when they are affordable.

This cars final design may make it into the Vigor styling.

Hi Ace... you know me, forever cranking out designs in the 3d world. I should drop by the forum in a month or so and have updates on my project.
