PACK 100

 Return to the BUILD


“Finally, you will complete your NISSAN GT-R (R35) model build by fitting the Carpets.”

This is a strange pack to write about, see below.

The Carpets

The Issue 26 magazine does have pages for Pack 100 (with instructions), however these Carpets do not seem to exist anymore.

UPDATE Oct 2023: I have been told that if you get this Pack 100 from IXO Collections, it does include the mats.

I believe that when this partwork was first released, Pack 100 contained not only these Carpets, but also the first parts of the 1:5 scale VR38DETT V6 engine build subscription extension. It seems this was a promotional choice to entice builders to continue their subscription for another 30 packs. This is a very similar extension to the 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean subscription.

But, at some point Eaglemoss started selling the VR38DETT engine build as a separate product. Now Pack 100 appears to have repackaged as ‘Engine Pack 1’ (with the same NISUK100C part number) and no longer includes the Carpets. You can even still see the shapes in the clamshell packaging where the Carpets should be, but they are nowhere to be found. I did reach out to Eaglemoss about it and they just sent me another Engine Pack 1, again without the carpets:

Thoughts


I would love to comment about these carpeted floor mat Carpets, but I have no idea how to get my hands on them. Still, if I did not know they existed, I would not necessarily miss them anyway. The GT-R is quite excellent, carpets or not!

  1. I would be angry too. BUT now that IXO has taken up this build since Eaglemoss went bankrupt (which has now placed this on my build list), hopefully these carpets will return or Mike Lane or Chloe at ModelModz will offer carpets to their modification list. If not, there’s always flocking – minus the GR-R logo.

  2. Thanks for the effort you have put in here. I am awaiting delivery of GTR from Japan via an agent. Will be using this site as my reference guide for the build .

    Thanks Again

    1. Glad to be able to help and enjoy the build! If you check out the comments section on my PARTS page, I responded to one with a Dropbox link to all of the original magazines in English PDF format if you need them.

  3. Hi Todd. Thank you so much for all your partworks sites. They are so helpful! I wanted to let you know that IXO sent me the remaining 14 issues I needed to complete. To my surprise, issue 100 included the mats! Just wanted to update you.
