Here I am, grinding along in my daily duties when an email pops up that definitely wakes me up.
One of the big developments in the diecast world this year is M2’s take on Japanese cars. They are coming later this year, but Head Designer Sean Taylor is sharing the first image.
I’m just gonna leave this here.
From Sean and M2:
Hi guys, here’s our brand new M2 1/64 scale 1970 Nissan Fairlday Z casting. This is a first shot sample as we are testing the mold. The final product may differ.

Well, I'm glad they're doing an opening hood to differentiate themselves from the scores of other S30s done by others.
That said, I hope alignment/fitment of it isn't an issue, as it too often is with other M2s.
S20 twin-cam under the hood? Looks like more than the L-motor at this stage of pre-production.
Super cool, and very different for M2. They should do a Datsun Cherry X-1 (or 100A) at some point too.
Looks nice! Here's hoping for better hood fit and a nice '70s color on the finished item.
I suggest that make the door openable, that will be great
I hope it's similar in size to other 1/64 so these can blend in…….unlike JADA and their monstrous “1/64”.
I love M2, but I'm not a fan of the opening doors & hoods on their premium models.
I wish to see M2 do bosozoku style cars, tuner style, etc. If copyright allowed, perhaps a Auto-Hauler with BRE livery??? I have to go wipe my drool now.
So excited for this one! It's nice to see a stock one for once. I still haven't tracked down one of the Kyosho or TLV ones, but this will fill that gap nicely.
