Mazda RX-7 Miniatures Overview

[hollands] Klik hier voor Nederlandse tekst

This is an overview of my collection of miniature models of the Mazda Rx-7 and of other Mazda sports cars that came factory equipped with a rotary engine.

  1. RX-7 street version, plastic kits (update)
  2. RX-7 and related race cars, kits
  3. Other Mazda rotary related plastic kits

or listed by type:

  1. 1st generation Rx-7 (SA en FB), street and race cars [new]
  2. 2nd generation RX-7 (FC), street and race cars [new]
  3. 3rd generation RX-7 (FD), street and race cars [new]

Most items in the lists point to a brief description of the model kit and a picture of the box art. Descriptions of kits that originate (for the most part) from the same patterns are listed on a single page.
The lists are not exhaustive, as new models keep surfacing (and I just don't know everything). Apart from that, I limit the scope of my collection to plastic and resin model kits of those Mazda types that were exclusively equipped with a rotary engine (so I tend to exclude types like R-100, Rx-2/3/4/5 which were in essence rotary equipped versions of cars that were also available with piston engines).
There are too many ready made die-cast models around for my taste to collect all of those too.
You can find an overview of all Mazda miniature models on the home page of Geert-Jan de Vaal.

In case you are looking to buy RX-7 scale model kits, I've assembled the best online sources for models I know on the Finding and buying Rx-7 model kits online page (update).

If you plan to paint an RX-7 model in authentic factory colors, have a look at my RX-7 Color Overview.
