    Hi guys/gals,I just bought a collector's Z kit with all the Z ever made (well, the 240,260,280,z31,z32 and z33) and I've started a new hobbie (I miss my car after more than 6 months of not seeing it).Does anyone know of any local websites selling models or RC online? Or does anybody know how much 1/24 models or RCs cost?Thanks, I'll be posting pictures of what I've got :) I think I'm bloody lucking getting that collector's Z kit, costed me a bomb too :p

    Hey Shiri >>

    I got my 1/10th RC zed for about $800 on the road just over a year ago (half was the zed kit, half was motor, battery, charger, controller, paints etc). Only problem now is that they are an old model and you may have problems finding them now.
    1/24 static model z32's alter in price here in Melb anywhere from $30 to $45.

    Z models

    Hearn's Hobbies in Flinders St may have the RC 300zx.
    The Tamiya 1/24th Plastic kit used to be very common and could be found in any hobbie shop but is now getting harder to find.
    Try Early Model Kits in Royston St Burwood.
    I've got a pic of some of my 300zx models on my web site.

    Might not be what you're looking for but...

    I found this model online at eHobbies. Does not look all that bad, but it might not be what you are looking for. I tried...1/24 300ZX at eHobbies

    Have you still got the box?

    I have friends in a Hobby Shop who may be able to convince the importer to get some older models in.That's why you can by Tamyia Z32 kits at the moment.

    BigCol That's what she said...

    Yep. >>

    What do you need? Model numbers or just a photo of the front of the box?

    Here's a site for you

    It might not be local but it has a variety of zeds on it. The 1/24th scale ones change from time to time depending on what they have. Also cost is quiet good even though it's coming from Japan.I know others on this forum who have used this site, as I got it from here.<A HREF=http://www.hlj.com> Hobby Link Japan. www.hlj.com</A>Al

    Both would be good....

    A picture and model numbers may be enough to get the process going.The instructions may list the part number for the body shell only, which may be a different option.The whole process relies on old stock in the wharehouse in Japan.

    Here's what I've found...

    1/24 300zx (2 seater)
    1/24 350z (2 seater)
    1/24 300zx police car (2+2 I think)
    1/24 240z police car (2+2 I think)
    1/24 remote controlled 4WD 350z (this one is awesome!!!) worth around $600and 1/60 300zx keyring (a matchbox Z with a ring for keys)I guess I could try and find a 2+2 here in Singapore (just passing through looking for a job...again :| ), but you're right, they are really hard to find. Best bet is buying those 1/60 size (matchbox sized) ones which aren't really that detailled.

    Hey Rodd - and 2+2 owners >>>

    Rodd, in your collection do you have a 1/43 Kato 300ZX? They are apparently available in red and white, LHD & RHD, 2-seaters only for anywhere between US$30-40 depeding on specials. They are supposed to have excellent detail. I have tried plenty of places locally and interstate, Stanbridges in WA contacted the Australian Kato distributor, but he isn't interested in bringing them in - apparently he got bitten by holding a few in stock some years ago - long before J-Specs became common.
    If you do have one, can you advise on the build quality?
    If you don't, are you interested in getting one? I am thinking seriously about bringing one in from either Japan or USA; landed cost should be about $80 if all duties get charged.
    Check this <A HREF=http://www.carnuts.com/dcc/pages/nissan_124.htm>website</A> out for further detail.
    They also have 1/87 scale available in blue/black/yellow.
    2+2 owners, on that website is a pic of a Motor Max 1/24th die cast 2+2 year 2000 model. Blipman has one - quality isn't great, but is reflected by the price - US$12.99. These have been available in Australian shops for about $20, some searching may find them.
