Yesterday we showed you some Aoshima 1/6 models of vintage Japanese racing barrels. On the opposite end of the scale scale Aoshima offers these bosozoku sleds from the 1/64 Gurachan Collection. The series has been out for a while, but we just picked this one up at Japantown Collectibles in San Francisco. This kandy orange Nissan Fairlady 240ZG is a zoku’s wet dream, with bubble flares, S130 hood vents, integrated fiberglass spoiler, and C210 Skyline taillights. Even the wheels are Watanabes wrapped in real rubber.
Collectors of stock-looking cars will probably be disappointed, but the series offers several models that are near impossible to find otherwise… including a slammed GX61 Mark II/Cressida! The others in the series are a Celica 1600GT coupe, hakosuka Skyline 2-door, C130 Nissan Laurel and Mazda Savanna RX-3. And as you can see from the packaging, this is already the fifth series.
