There isn't one out. I've been looking for a while, because I actually collect die cast models.

The place I get all my stuff from is Scale18.com.

I have been searching as well. There is a guy in the Maxima community user name RAMBERG which you can find him on Maxima.org, NYCMaximas.org, and 6thgenmaxima.org had found a contact that made a limited amount of 6th Gen Maxima's. I know it wasn't huge maybe 1/64th but it was something. I actually wanted 2 one for me and my pops but he has no more and told me he would get a hold of me if he gets more made when he is able to get a hold of his connection. I sent a PM to him to find the connect and I will try and see what I can dig up.

The reason nobody cares about an Altima model is because your only dealing with a small number of people willing to pay for it. The average Joe purchasing a model is not going for a family sedan but a car of more interest like a Corvette etc. I actually like J-collection the are small like 1/43 scale but they have a lot of JDM OEM stuff like Nissan Skyline Sedan I actually got a rare Infinti G35 Sedan in Pearl White. I have been debating on purchasing a 05 Nissan Murano (my moms car) just to have. I also have an Audi A4 I custom painted my factory color and kinda made it look like how it was before I traded it in.

True, % of altima owners wanting a model compared to % of Corvette owners wanting a model is very small but being that there's a LOT more altima's on the road then Corvette's actuall number of PEOPLE (not %) could be about the same.

As i said - i saw a freaking 08 Camry model car in my local CVS!!! WFT???

Nope. I wouldn't buy a model Corvette, but I would buy an Altima. I've got models of other cars I've owned. AMT used to make models of almost everything, and Revell made a lot, but I guess kids aren't into models anymore. Some car manufacturers would have models in the showroom, and give them to "favored customers"- I've got a model of a '66 Fairlane that I got from a dealer. The local Nissan outlet is part of a multi-brand group, and mostly doesn't give a rat about "extras".

Same issue here in the gulf the sales guy looked at me as if i was nuts when i asked him about getting a model. They dont care, and what is strange is that Nissan in japan doesnt have the stuff as well. We must write to them !!!
Lets start a petition, who is with me ?

Group buy anyone?????

Obviously i'd like my model to look like my actuall car (rims, tails...) but even if they only can do basic stock model I would 100000% be down for it.

I highly doubt it will happen. If anybody did they would most likely go with the 2010 body style. I would reach out and try but I have so much going on. You need to email like everyone. Jada, Maisto, J-Collection, Green Light eyc. Then you need to show proof it would sell to many customers. You most likely will have a better chance on the 1/64 scale less detail and time they have to put in it. Think about this how would sell 1000 of them to turn a profit. No one will make them because we asked them to. You need to develop reasons and show interest like getting many forums involved on specific vehicle and show the people the interest. I did mad research on this Maxima made by Jada. The Vice President of Jada product development had a brother who posts on Maxima.org. I believe RAMBERG just had a connection on purchasing them since these were made a few years back.
