Aoshima – 1/24 Scale Nissan S12 Silvia RS-X Plastic Model Kit
The S12 was produced from August 1983 to 1988, with revisions to the exterior trim in 1987 (referred to as “Mark II”). It was sold in two configurations—a coupe (often called a “notchback” due to the side profile view of its rear window section) and a hatchback version.
A number of different engines were equipped in the S12 chassis, depending on production year and more specifically on the geographic market. These engines borrowed from previous designs, or in some cases, inspired future engine platforms (with the exception of the FJ series, which was designed solely with Rally competition in mind). For instance, the CA series initially borrowed design cues from the NAP-Z series. The CA18DET’s DOHC head design was similar to that utilized in the later “RB” engine series, the inline-six engine that powered the Nissan Skylines. Certain trims had the S12 equipped with an optional V6 engine also shared by the 300ZX (Z31) of the same vintage; this engine would be augmented with dual cam heads for the Z32.
