Tamiya 1st Generation Mazda RX-7 Savanna
Posted by jbherri2 on Wednesday, March 08, 2017 8:32 PM

I've been chipping away at this old kit for a little while.  It was a build-up of the Tamiya Savanna Mazda RX-7 that I found on eBay.

Started with this:

Beginning

But, I'm almost finished.  Some detail work left ...

Nearly Finished

Looking good. I owned a 1980 Rx7 and I enjoyed it very much. Except for the $80 spark plug changes every second month. 

I like to work just as much as I don't.

I actually finished it! 

The inspiration, sort of.  Smile

Nice save on that old kit. That's a nice looking Mazda.

As time goes on, I've come to like those first gen RX-7s more and more.
