Default 1/18 scale Z-tune Skyline

Good day,

Does anyone else have an Autoart 1/18 scale R34 Z-Tune Nismo Skyline? The Nismo badge is on the bottom of the radiator but there is no intercooler in the front bumper, where it should be. Does anyone else own one? My R33 has one. The induction system is wrong on the 1/18 scale R33, I was looking in there one day and it doesn't seem right. I hope that Koyosho makes more Nissan models in 1/18, they do such a nice job.

Thanks

No, not yet. Last I heard Koyosho, AutoArt, and Maisto were all saying that they had no plans to do one. While there are other die-cast model makers out there, if these main three aren't doing it the likely hood of others is very low. It's a shame but it's been known to happen for companies to skip models. There still is no 1:18 of the 280zx or 300zx (Z31). Right now the largest die-cast 370z available is 1:24.

That is a Maisto 1:24 or Fastlane 1:24. I have the Maisto version in that same blue

Either way, not a 1:18 like the OP is looking for.

I've been searching for 1:18 also....always see 1:24 and I can find the Datsun 240Z in 1:18, tons of those....

Tongman Is that 1:18??

That looks like the 1:24 Maisto.

I just got a Solid Red 1:24 Maisto. It's about the best you can get right now. In general Maisto = meh.

Unfortunately the market sucks so Auto Art and Kyosho haven't been coming out with anything real new lately.

I REALLY want to get my hands on a 1:18 AA or Kyosho 370Z but it will probably be years until we see one... if we ever do. It sucks because they made so many 350s back when the diecast market was stronger.

If you have any model building skills Tamiya makes a 1:24 scale curbside model kit which has great body detail.

Mustang is correct. It's 1:24.
