This is my new arrival today and it is the 1/6 scale model of the Top Secret Nissan GT-R RB26 engine made by Kusaka Engineering in Osaka, Japan. There are some of these engines on eBay, but the prices are heavily inflated. I bought this from a company in Japan that speaks English and sell car parts called RHDjapan, and they are a reseller of Kusaka Engineering.

They make a lot of model engines and some with gearboxes attached and car model and engine model combo sets too. They looked good on the website, so I decided to grab one of these legendary engines to sit with my set of 3 Ignition Top Secret GT-R models all in gold. Overall it looks pretty good but I think for the 50,000 YEN price tag, details could have been a bit better. BUT, I have to say that what is made, is made very well and the paint ant decals are very good. The model comes on a timber base with a carbon fiber top piece and nice metal Top Secret badges, and also has a clear plexiglass display cover. Outer packaging is just a basic white cardboard box with Top Secret logo, apparently licensed by Top Secret.

Enjoy the pics and check out what other models they make. I will be reviewing this model on Youtube soon. Cheers, Rob

Looks quite good Rob, and the subject matter is off the scale in terms of how cool it is ... Such an iconic engine and a legendary tuner. I quite like these unique pieces that you don't see often. Congrats on the add.

Yeah, I have too much time on my hands and search Google too much and find things I want to buy. These are very unique for sure

Cheers Mark, I do love Top Secret cars, so once my Ignition TS R33 arrives, I am going to fit this engine model and my 3 gold GT-R's in a single display case I made. Should look pretty cool.

I love these, I wanted to buy one when I was over in Tokyo but ran out of luggage space. Been on my want list for a while! They have these displayed within the Nismo showroom and quite a few in the Nissan engine museum

Christ you would expect it to be more detailed than that for the money eh? Where are all the delicious rivets? The throttle linkage thingy needs more metal parts as well. Are the hose clamps metal at least?
I mod stuff
