Ok this may sound weird but from these two kits i plan to build two cars.
I got the fujimi kit thinking that the flares and spoilers would be separate parts and the body would be a standard one that you would have to cut out the wheel arches and fit the racecar parts to like some of there other racercar kits. But no, what you get is a racecar shell with full roadcar interior. the Arii kit has a nice standard body shell but the rest is So with some kit bashing and some scratch work i hope to have a roadcar and a racecar at the end of this.
Good luck with the build mate. I must admit, I wasnt a fan of the RX-7s to begin with, being a V8 snob, but age and changing tastes saw me actually really appreciate the designs of all the of the 7's. Probably started around the time the Batmobile came out as that is a horny looking beast still.
With the colour on the road car i made a start on this today. I removed the molded on windscreen wipers then started the inside. Cage is a few parts from the spares box and some plastic rod, used the dash from the Arii kit and Seat,gear stick,handbrake and steering wheel are also from the spares box. I changed my mind on the rear paneling and have removed it now, not sure how to finish that area off at this stage.
So progress on this one was finishing the cabin and roll cage which was then primed and decided to try making it look like it has taken a knock because rubbing is racing and added some damage to the door.
Cheers guys got some more done. insides all painted, added wires from the battery to earth and the kill switch on the dash, pipes from the oil tank, decaled the seat then had my first go with etch with a belt i got from Chris/fooseboy. Man bending that stuff with my fat hands would be like trying to do keyhole surgery with baseball gloves on. Also got the base colours on the body, not easy to see but the right door and front guard are painted a different white to look like its been repaired at some point.
