1/24 Tamiya Mazda RX-7

This one took a bit longer than anticipated, but its completed at last!

Old Tamiya kit, started as a box-stock build for a online contest, but didnít get finished in time. Mid-build, as the box-stock requirement was lifted, some aftermarket decals and small additions like foil, etc were used to liven it up a bit. Yes, the lights work, and it does run!





















And a few on a base before it got sealed in the case and put on the shelf!











And here is the link to WIP thread in case you missed it.

Thanks all!
Alex

Thanks Paul, feels good to get this one off the bench and on the shelf. Been sitting for too long!

Very nice result in the end. The seat patterns/decals are a good contrast/detail!

Thanks guys. Seats turned out fine in the end. Looked like a disaster in the process!
