JDM Option Vertex Lang Nissan S15 Silvia





This is "JDM Option Vertex Lang Nissan S15 Silvia" produced by Aoshima at 1/64 scale.

I don't know much about Vertex Lang but I think it's the same as that Vertex USA (maybe I'm wrong as well), they are some sort of after market tuner shop providing good quality and high performance car stuff. You can visit their website from the link below:

Oh well, I don't care much about it anyway...

As for Nissan Silvia S15, I guess fans of Initial D anime series as well as the fans of Japanese sports cars and those drift competitions like D1 GP and Formula Drift should be familiar with this particular car model.

Nonetheless, let's review this Nissan Silvia S15 in metallic blue color....


The box;





Other cars from other popular after market tuners available from this brand;







Made by Aoshima thru their China factory of course....






And now, out of the box;







They also includes this some sort of collectors card, maybe...





The text/information is in Japanese and unless of coz if you understand Arabic and Hindi and also Japanese, most likely you wont understand a single words they said there... but it looks cool... the Japanese text/fonts feel so Japanese LOL....







And now, the car;









From far this dark blue metallic color seems to be like black....









Let's take it out of that display base;








And to my surprise, they only use screw for this car.... not those rivets... that means, the possibilities to modified the color scheme of this car is there and it's quite easy as well - if you wish for it though...






In that case, we can also see the interior;









All in black... quite OK I guess but then again I decided to do a little bit of touch up as you can see below;

Earlier it's like this....





And with the Pilot chrome/silver super fine marker pen I add a little bit of charm there;







And for fun sake, also in here - not sure why LOL:






And now let's have a look at all those decals;












And that is all....






Overall, this is a nice Nissan Silvia S15 at 1/64 scale. The car is gorgeous, the decals are quite good as well, the display base is nice. This is certainly a good value for money and one of the cheapest way to get a Nissan Silvia S15 with decent details and painting finishing at miniature size.


And for fun sake, a little photo of this Silvia with our Camaro;







The American car is certainly quite big....

  1. Even though it look smaller, this toy has a nice looking packaging and the card and stand that comes with it value add to it as a whole. The decals are really detailed too!
