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.

So the show is in full flight today with the general public finally allowed in to witness the latest models on display. The GT-R models are numerous and we’ve seen a lot of them already. Here we’ll get a look inside the show itself and checkout the Tamiya booth. We’ll also head over to Aoshima’s booth and check out their and Fujimi’s progress with their GT-R models. Lastly we’ll see what else is cooking that we haven’t seen before until now.
