Ebbro Show Range of 2009 Nissan GT-R Models at Shizuoka

May 24th, 2009

ebbro-2009-006

The Shizuoka Hobby Show, an annual event where model makers show off their latest and future creations, finished up last weekend and today I spotted these photos of Ebbro’s upcoming 2009 range of 1/43rd scale Nissan GT-R models. Set for a June release, the SuperGT GT500 GT-Rs of all four teams in their 2009 specification aero and livery are looking good. I have the Ebbro 2008 SuperGT cars and the quality of them at this scale is top shelf.

We can also see that the FIA GT Test car in both all carbon finish and final 2009 FIA championship season livery will be released. This is set to June and may be a tough one to get a hold of as pre-orders are filling up and production may be limited.

Finally the GT-R SpecV models were shown and should be available in June as well, while they look good I think the HPI SpecV models look slightly better. Unfortunately HPI SpecV model will be four times more expensive at 16,500 yen versus the 4,000 yen expected for the Ebbro version.

Many of these models are available for pre-order already from certain Japanese hobby stockists, I always rely on Hobby Link Japan for all of these and the pre-orders.

Nissan GT-R SpecV Models by HPI Coming Soon

April 4th, 2009

Following up their past special edition models, sources have leaked news that HPI will be producing a limited edition Nissan GT-R SpecV diecast 1/43rd scale in Ultimate Opal Black and Brilliant White colours in the coming months.

This compliments their existing plans to produce a Nismo Clubsport Package special edition GT-R model in the same 1/43rd scale die cast format.

If you’ve been holding out on getting a GT-R model car at all, this might be one to jump on. If history shows us anything it’s that this will sell out in a matter of days and they will not produce a second run. The Nismo Clubsport Package model is already pretty much sold out in pre-sales and will go up on auction sites for more than RRP soon after release.
