Tamiya made one about 15 years ago, that's the only one I'm aware of.

Send an email to the shop owner at http://genkihobbies.com/, if there is one available now, he'll know.

Lightbulb R33 Skyline shells (RARE)

Tamiya made 2 different R33 shells, one was the Kure R33 Skyline, it came with the TA03F chassis and body was 190mm wide. The second one was the Clarion R33 Skyline and was released with the TA02W chassis and was 200mm wide. Both bodies are UBER-RARE, although they do OCCASIONALLY appear on eBay and fetch well over $100-$150. There was a ebay seller in the UK that had a few Clarion R33 bodysets for sale a while back, I don't know how many he had or whether he still has any left. Apparently HPI makes or made an R33 but I'm not completely sure.... check out www.tamiyaclub.com and you should be able to find the part numbers for them and search eBay for them that way....

Yokomo use to make a R33 Skyline, but they are hard to get and extremely rare now days. Here is an auction/ buy it now for a Yokomo YR-4 Sport kit with R33 Skyline body. http://cgi.ebay.com/Yokomo-1-10-YR-4...item2eabcc5e15 Yokomo still make an R34 Skyline body if you can't find a R33.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Tamiya make the only R33s worth showing

as mentioned above there are only 2 tamiya kits with R33:-

#58155 Loctite Nismo GT-R on a TA02 chassis

#58185 Kure Nismo GT-R on a TA03F chassis

the Kure is a widebody JGTC-type racecar; the Loctite is N1 spec car
which is just like a R33 Nismo roadgoer bodykit on an unmodified steel body.
So the Loctite is the one everybody wants to make replica of their rides.


How serious are you at owning a R33 Loctite shell?

Last 1 seen on rctech changed hands for A$180 in late 2009.



Loctite as pictured can be available if you're really serious, located Melbourne.

Has no bodypost holes cut so you're not limited to putting it on a tamiya chassis.

Default RCMart

Not sure which one it is - Calsonic GT-R GrA shell - 8 available
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-190...?cPath=438_875
Have a look - It's either the 32 or 33????? On closer inspection - I think it's the 32 - sorry

save yer time fellas... Tamiya only ever made 2 kits with R33s

i build replicas of the famous GT-Rs eg 1992 Jim Richards Bathurst R32
so its a must to source the base shells

T made about 6 different variants of R32 bodysets with different liveries
(various rarity - some were bodyset only, no corresponding RC kit) but all
the base shells are the same. When they put the R32 on the TT01 they
updated with lightbuckets too.

HPI makes a 200mm R32 too.

T has done R34s in Zexel, Xanavi JGTC and the Z-tune.
HPI did a few too all road-type shape but the earlier ones had
ugly boot bumps for the wing.

T has R35 in road spec & JGTC; HPI has a road spec.

Looks like Tamiya is going to re-release the Nissan GT-R33 Skyline shell in a limited edition item. If you can find a place with them in stock you might want to get a few and save them. http://side-fx.com/?p=303

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick
