1/24 Amuse Nissan Fairlady 370Z (featuring Voltex 350Z)

Following the Voltex 350Z, I have completed another tuned Fairlady Z which is a Z34 370Z by famous Japanese tuner Powerhouse Amuse.

Highlights of this model:
  • 1/24 Tamiya Nissan 370Z base kit
  • Meko models Amuse 370Z transkit
  • Monterey Blue exterior color and Persimmon Orange interior color
Quick review of the transkit -

The quality of Meko transkit are high as usual, however fitment for this kit can be a bit tricky.  The kit actually requires you to remove the whole rear hatch(starting from the roof to the tailights including the rear bumper.  When cutting and attaching the rear hatch and bumper mistakes on fitment can be made easily.  For my experience I used putty to fill in any mistakes or miscalculation in order to re-adjust the position and make the car look complete.  The transkit also have oil spots on the surface and needed to be washed thoroughly.   Aside from that, the kit and the wheels that came with it will turn the 370Z into another thing of beauty once completed.

I've always kind of liked this orange leather interior which looks unique and increase the exotic/sportiness feeling of the car.  It is a shame that it is not offered in other models or Infiniti models(which was offered in Japan).

1/24 Voltex tuned Nissan Z33 Fairlady 350Z

Another quick update of a recently finish project.  Highlights:

  • Aoshima Nismo Nissan 350Z base kit
  • Hobby Design Voltex transkit(front bumper, side skirt, rear bumper, rear diffuser plate)
  • MCR 350Z hood - I feel that the stock hood doesn't cut it with such an extravagance body kit and GT wing
  • 19" Enkei NT03
