1/24 scale plastic model of the new Fairlady Z will be released
On August 26, 2022, Tamiya announced the release of a 1/24 scale plastic model of the new RZ34 Nissan Fairlady Z. The new Fairlady Z, which is currently closed for orders, can be purchased if it is a Tamiya plastic model.
Tamiya Sports Car Series No.363 Nissan Fairlady Z (RZ34) is scheduled to be released in December 2022. The price is 4,180 yen including tax.
The 7th generation new Fairlady Z is a pure engine model that may be the last. The latest Fairlady Z, which is a homage to the first generation S30 Fairlady Z, can be called the culmination of all aspects such as interior, exterior and powertrain.
The plastic model faithfully reproduces the beautiful styling of the 2-door fastback coupe. Furthermore, the biggest feature of the kit is that it is easy to paint separately by dividing the parts.
Small parts such as the finisher with a Japanese sword motif attached along the roof are also separated, eliminating the need for masking work when painting the body.
Exterior is easy to paint separately with separate parts
The size when completed is 183 mm in length x 84 mm in width x 55 mm in height. By making the roof outer panel a separate part, it is possible to easily reproduce the two-tone body color of the new Fairlady Z.
In addition, parts such as the transmission and front and rear suspension arms are separated, making it easier to paint the underside and creating a more three-dimensional finish. The precise modeling of the underfloor is also one of the highlights of the kit.
The genuine Brembo caliper that decorates the feet is also a feature of the Fairlady Z. The caliper is also separate from the brake disc for ease of painting work.
The details inside the car are just like the real car.
The interior also imitates the actual car in detail. The traditional triple meter board and digital meter displays are reproduced with precise decals. By rearranging the parts of the dashboard, you can also make it a left-hand drive North American specification.
The seat is composed of 4 parts, base, side, back, and seat, to completely reproduce the color scheme of the actual sports seat. Details such as the inside of the roof, sun visor, and room lamp are precisely finished.
No detail is overlooked
Let’s stick to using transparent parts not only for the window but also for the side mirror turn signal.
Metallic inlet marks are used for mirror surfaces and emblems. Comes with a mask sticker that makes it easy to paint transparent parts separately.
Official announcement at the 60th All Japan Model Hobby Show
The new RZ34, which can be the last Fairlady Z with an internal combustion engine, will be a particularly symbolic model among the successive Fairlady Zs. The plastic model of the new Fairlady Z, which has been reproduced in detail, is a must-have item for those who are waiting for delivery, Z fans, and car model fans.
In addition, this 1/24 scale new Fairlady Z will be exhibited and officially announced at the “60th All Japan Model Hobby Show” to be held at Tokyo Big Sight for two days from October 1, 2022.
In addition, Nissan has registered a custom design design that seems to be the Fairlady Z NISMO, even in the category of “toy car”, so it is not zero possibility that it will be made into a plastic model after it appears as a live action.
