overall i think the casting is very nice..the only thing to complain is the lack of details at the back of the car...
perhaps they are saving it for the Speed Machine version later? lol

overall i think the casting of this skyline could be better..but the impression of the tail-lights at least is perfect..the evergreen design will last forever..just like the EK of civic...
i'm loving the last shot in this post very much :D

Quite a beautiful car..the regular TH version imo is not even worth taking pics of but the spectra flame and the cool new rubber wheels of this $TH are definitely worth it..And on top of it, It is actually my 1st $TH in my collection!
LOL ガ━━Σ(゚Д゚|||)━━ン!!

Though the color is a bit too funky to my liking but the detailing compensate for that..i think with Co-mold wheels, the FE version might do even better! :)

C6R GT

Wow, yet another C6R related entry.

Jada cars are always bigger than normal 1/64 cars, even though they categorized their cars as 1/64 scale too. anyway i did think at 1st that hotwheels version is nicer due to the decals, but after comparing them side by side, i guess Jada still wins..IMO, the casting looks more accurate and the bigger size is more satisfying.
but Hotwheels decal design plus the co-mold wheels are irresistible too!
in case you are wondering, the hotwheels follows the

2007 LAGUNA SECA / 2007 ALMS version


while Jada follows the 2005 Sebring GT1 version


man, if Jada comes out with the ALMS version too, im pretty sure to grab it! :)

Jada C6R

Jada BigTime Muscle - Track Series.
2008 production wave 16.

A friend of mine bought it for me while he was in Aussie..thanx :)
This C6R is based on the GT1 Corvette C6.R debuted in 2005 as the successor of C5.R



There are lot of die-cast manufacturers produce this car in 1/64 scale like
Jada, Hot wheels, Kyosho and Greenlight, proof that the car is really popular back then till now.
anyway here are the pics! (click for bigger images)

as usual, the favorite pickup truck will bring the car to the studio..lol

somehow its funny the car came with chrome rims,
but you'll get used to it after a while..cause its still looks superb!
and if u compare it with the real car above, it perfectly replicating it.
with almost all the decals being present in the body design.

Now here's one funny thing about Jada that i noticed recently. when i started collecting Jada cars,
i only go for Japanese cars. and ALL their japanese cars have very negative tire offset..lol
u can refer to my Jap cars from Jada entries to see.
so now that i started buying cars other than Japanese cars, i realized that the cars from other makers have a proper offset! so i was thinking if the "deep dish" wheels in the Japanese car models are intended..
perhaps they designed the cars based on "Ah Bengs" cars in the US? LOL >_>
