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

bigger man than me… I would be unreasonably angry about this
sad I know
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.
