Interesting..that is a kit I didn't know existed.  The only current GT-R kit I have is the Tamiya one.

 

Well Aoshima updated their existing GT-R into three (well five if you count the two pre-painted versions coming this month) revised 2012 kits.

 

There was this one - which is RHD JDM.  It sold out after awhile, but you can find them all over eBay.  They plan to do another spot run in August

Then around Christmas it was issued as two different kits...

 

The 2012 GT-R Egoist - which is a really amusing "tuner" car that costs something like $180k U.S. in 1:1 and famously has a pink...err salmon color interior.  This is sold out and discontinued, and I haven't heard of another run of it yet.  But there are 4-5 of them on eBay.

Then lastly it was tweaked to a 2013 (not 2010 like I stated earlier) and released as a U.S./North American LHD model.  I've seen exactly ONE of these ever listed on eBay and it sold the day it was listed.

Very good data on these kits, good work gents. If I get into doing R35's it'll prove useful. Although I do need to start on my R32 favorites and go up from there. :-(

The Egoist is available with roughly 35 different interior colors according to a friend in Japan that test drove one.

Good to know, I've only seen a YouTube video of the one Aoshima used for their kit that has the pink insides.

I just now noticed this but why are there (What looks to be) exhaust cutouts below the door if rear exhaust is what the car has?

Maybe giving tuners/racers and easier time of doing side-exhaust for their mechanical modifications. That's just a guess though, they could have done it for aesthetics lol

Now that I think about wouldn't a jack go there in a pit area?

Hmm, probably so yeah, It may be more of what Jon is thinking; for the looks. Which isn't bad either.

Given the price point, I would assume the RB kits are kerbsides.
