Vehicle Description:
The new Z (RZ34 model) has already started deliveries and can be seen on the streets on rare occasions.

Although the model is inherited from the Z34 that debuted in 2008 (technically, it was changed to RZ34), the exterior and interior have been completely redesigned, and the powertrain has been downsized by 700cc to meet the needs of the times, while achieving a power increase of just under 70 horsepower, making it a new model. It is a new model.

The customized prototype is a customized version that Nissan itself produced and presented at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, a festival for custom and tuning cars, and it is a much talked about model that pays homage to the first generation Z, strictly speaking its highest performance grade, the Z432, in more detail than the standard car. There are no plans to market this model as is, but since it was produced as a study model for accessory parts, there is a possibility that it will be released in units of installed parts.

Model Description:
This model will be a customized version of the RZ34, which was very popular at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, winning the grand prize in the concept car category and first place in all eight other categories.

The customized prototype was the most popular car at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, creating an atmosphere of "the second coming of the Z432. We have tried to express its impactful appearance in the world of 1/18 based on the actual 3D data of the car provided by Nissan.

The exterior is full of highlights, but the most distinctive features are the small over fenders reminiscent of the first generation Z 240ZG, the front spoiler (bumper) that is narrowed at the bottom, and the front grille that is split into upper and lower sections.

The emphasis on low and wide looks was also a theme, but the way the tread surface of the tires protrudes slightly from the bottom of the fenders when viewed from the front and the low height of the car give the impression of "tuning car grammar," which is not unlike that of an automobile manufacturer. This was also the reason for the popularity of the model car.


The 19-inch wheels are reminiscent of Watanabe 8-spoke wheels, which can be said to be the default for the S30 model, and the Z432's vertical double mufflers were used as an homage to the Z432's vertical mufflers. The muffler cutters, which are split into upper and lower sections, are an homage to the Z432's vertical dual mufflers.


The body color is a special specification that was created by referring to the Z432's orange color recipe and adding pearl to increase the brightness, but the color tone has been reproduced just like that of the actual car, with a mirror finish. The moldings of chrome from the roof to the C-pillar, one of the features of the RZ34, have been eliminated, and the body color is the same as that of the RZ34.

Along with the GR Supra, which is the biggest rival of the RZ34, we are planning to release more RZ34 model cars in the future. We hope you will complete your "Z Car Collection" by purchasing one of each specification.

About Resin Models:
Although higher in price, resin models offer an extreme amount of detail and precision.  The finish is near flawless in presentation, they are limited in production, they offer a ton of photo-etch details and some of the tiniest features are shown.  Resin models are especially great when it comes to makes, models and aftermarket styles that we often do not see when it comes to our favorite cars.  These are offered in every model car scale and great for the collector minded people that want something unique from every angle.
