released in April 1992
Tamiya's japanese RX-7 FD kit depicts the 'Type R' version, with full aerokit and two oil coolers below the front driving lights.
The kit is a nicely detailed kerbside that suffers somewhat from Tamiya's drive to simplify kits by reducing the parts count.
Body and C-parts are moulded in red, chassis and interior parts are moulded in black, the D-parts frame with the wheels is satin plated, tires are 16in Advan HF 225/50 with authentic thread pattern.
Factory Eightyone, ZoomOn Model and Hobby Design make a number of aftermarket sets for this model kit.
