2009 Nissan GT-R (A Closer Look)

Posted in Maisto by CASTRO on June 23, 2008

So we’re sitting here this morning scarfing down some doughnuts before a quick monday morning meeting, when low and behold some boxes come in and it quickly catches our attention. 

Did someone order some tools? And what’s with that creepy Mexican puppet? Oh that’s Cantinflas!

See that…Ooh, that’s perdy! She travel’s first class!

Here is a little more detailed shot of the engine, for a 1:24 scale model, and the price point this one is pretty nice!

the old pics didn’t show the details in the clear headlights.

this interior is just as inviting as the real car, extremely detailed and on-point.

here’s a little side-by-side comparison of the tooling model and a 1:24 scale Pro Rodz vehicle. this is the size we work with to get all the details down.


here are some more beauty shots so you can see the detail and accuracy we are putting into this piece.

side view…

don’t forget the rear!



we will continue to keep you updated on the progress of the 2009 Nissan GT-R casting, just stay tuned to the Double D!

    What scale is that tooling model, 1:12?
    You should make that model also! Is it going to be available on 1:18 (hope so) or only 1:24?
    It is coming nicely [Except the engine ;( ]

    Good work guys. Maisto may want to look at cornering the market and producing a 1:12 version. At the reasonable price point that Maisto are known for, this would sell like hotcakes in that scale.

    This is going to be one hot seller! May I suggest it be available in more than one color, maybe white, black and silver?
