Review : Rai’s 64 Police Cars

Rai’s, 1/43 specialist, made its debut in the 1/64 scale last year with a Japanese police Toyota Crown. After many variants of the same car we finally get to see something new. The Skyline GT-R R32, Mazda RX8 and Skyline GT-R R34 are now available in their fine looking Japanese police liveries.

Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR32 (high-speed police interception unit)

Mazda RX-8 SE3P (Tokyo riot police unit)

Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR34 (Saitama Prefecture high-speed police interception unit)

In the same fashion as the Carnel 64 line, these cars are modified Kyosho models. The added details are numerous and accurate : bug deflectors, strobe lights, extra mirrors, antennas and of course markings.

RAI-GTRR32-POL-03 RAI-GTRR32-POL-04

RAI-MAZRX8-POL-03 RAI-MAZRX8-POL-04

RAI-GTRR34-POL-03 RAI-GTRR34-POL-04

Overall very nice looking car, even though a very close inspection can show slightly crooked tampos. The quality and feel are very similar to the Kyosho Beads.

Limited to 800 pcs and already hard to find. The Honda NSX should be released soon.
