Nissan Fairlady Z: Fast Lane

If you read my previous post, I mentioned, in the last bits of the post, about a Nissan Fairlady Z (350Z) cast which costs less than the Tomica version, but with a much better interior. Well, here it is:

Fast Lane's Nissan Fairlady Z
I'd say the colour is somewhere between matte black and glossy black. Don't you agree? Other colours available for this particular cast include silver, and light creamy yellow (those are the ones I saw). I didn't get the silver 'cause it's only available in a 3-pack (I'm not sure if it's the same case in other stores), and I didn't get the light creamy yellow 'cause it looks like egg pudding (though I really like egg pudding). By the way, do note the presence of side mirrors, which is a nice addition.

Tampos are pretty much perfect. Headlights are not misaligned, Nissan logo is in the center, and you can actually make out the 'Nissan' in the middle of the logo. And the logo is not printed upside down like the Kyosho Xanavi Nismo Z Test Car 2007, which cost around 10 times more than this 350Z. So far so good...

Wait, what's this? What the hell is wrong with the wheels? My precious Fairlady has been infected with the 'pizza wheels' virus! Nnnnnoooooooooooooo!! :(

Rear end looks pretty good. I appreciate the effort they took to paint the Fairlady Z emblem, the Nissan logo, the Fairlady Z rear plate, the taillights, and the reverse lights. Almost perfect, except for the relatively large size of the emblem and the logo. The size of the Nissan logo on the Tomica version is much more accurate.

Enough on the exterior. Now let's get to the best part of the cast; the interior.
It's a shame that the doors can't be opened, or else I could take better shots of the interior, which is amazingly similar to the interior of the real car. Just google '350Z interior' and you'll see what I mean. Now, for RM5.50, the level of interior detail is simply superb. Excellent job Fast Lane! (Actual manufacturer is Realtoy though). If you're a Z fan, like I am, then this cast is definitely a must have in your collection. :)


  1. all you need now is a drill and nice pair of nice wheels set.
    Overall, the color,the interiors and details are quite satisfying.
    Once the wheels swapped, these Z will have a different look, from all angle.

  2. Yeah, the wheels are the only disappointing part. Otherwise this would be an awesome fairlady cast. Now saving up for a drill. :p
