1:40 Prelude (G3) by Diapet

Diapet has modeled the G1, G3 and G4 Preludes over the years in 1:40. As typical with other Diapets, the Preludes focus on operating features rather than fine castings or details.

The G3 Preludes 2.0Si 4WS (1988 model) were very crude in its casting – mainly because Diapet casted the entire door including the window frame as one piece.  The moonroof no longer operates.  Diapet’s G3 Preludes came in 2 variations: the G55 and the SV20.  The G55 has chrome wheels and engine while the SV20 has white wheels and a grey engine. Tires are rubber compared to the plastic tires on the G1 Diapet Prelude. On the G55 variation, the moonroof has a casted border but the moonroof itself is a black decal.  However, the hood trim and side molding is painted black. The underside of the hood has the sectional details.


Here, the black G3 Prelude (SV20) comes with white wheels.
