released in 1978
Old but well detailed kit designed by ARII.
This kit was released in three versions in the "RX-7 Savanna Series": as 'RX-7 GT', as 'RX-7 Limited' and as 'RX-7 Racing'.
This Racing version included an air dam, fender flares, rear wing and racing wheels.
After 1980 the 'RX-7 Racing' version was discontinued.
The kit can be fitted with a Mabuchi FA130 electric motor and with light bulbs for the headlights, neither of which are included although wires, switches and metal fittings are included in the kit.
The headlights come with separate lids and a simple mechanism for raising or lowering the lights, the headlight bodies are a bit too small to look convincing though.
The windows are all on a single piece from windshield to rear hatch, the door windows are 'open' (i.e. not included).
The cabin interior is the same as for the street versions and includes a great looking dash (righthand drive only) with shifter, steering column, steering wheel, center console with handbrake, a set of 4 pedals, separate door panels, seats with folding seatbacks and rear seats.
The optional electric motor and batteries can hidden below the slightly raised rear seats and luggage cover.
Wheels accurately depict Speedstar Mk.III 13in alloys.
Floorpan is flat with raised lines indicating details such as engine, exhaust pipe and suspension.
Body parts are molded in white. Wheels, license plates, tailights, front indicators, exhaust tip and rear view mirror are satin plated, all other parts are molded in black. Tires are rubber-like and have Michelin XWX legends (on one side and Goodyear Racing legends on the other) and authentic Michelin XWX thread pattern.
A nice set of decals is included with green stripes for a white/green Nr.2 racer.
