Mazda Rx-7 Kits, where to find 'm

There were a lot of Rx-7 kits made over the years, some are re-released and new ones or new versions of familiar kits keep surfacing.
I've had quite a number of questions about where to find particular kits, enough to dedicate a web page to this subject.
Note that availablity is always changing, I'm trying to keep up, but if you find some of the info listed here no longer correct, or have additional info, please drop me a line .

Japanese Shops

Where better to look for the latest Japanese kits than in Japan ?
Unfortunately Rainbow 10, my favorite Japanese model shop, has recently stopped handling foreign orders.
That leaves two Japanese-based online shops I know of that deal with foreign orders, Hobby Link Japan and Hobby Search.

Hobby Link Japan
is a web-based model shop, they don't have all of the kits listed actually in stock, their catalog lists all kits that manufacturers can supply, the lists include a Stock Status indicating if a kit is in stock or if it is no longer available.
The links below launch searches through HLJ's online catalog for any RX-7 and Mazda kits.

Hobby Search
is a web based shop that lists all available kits on its site, color codes indicate whether kits are in stock and if these can be ordered or reserved.
The buttons below launch searches through Hobby Search online catalog for any RX-7 or Mazda kits.

Asian Shops

Japan is not the only place to get japanese kits, in other asian countries such as Hong Kong, japanese goods can be found, often even after the japanese shops have depleted their stocks.

Toy East (formerly Hobby Japan 2000)
This shop only sells a few model kits, but is a great source for die cast models such as Tomica, Diapet and MTech, for small radio controlled cars and for documentation such as Option or Best Motoring Video CD's.

North American Shops

For american kits like Revell-Monogram, it's best to check US based mail order shops first. I have good experiences with the following shops:

Hobby Surplus Sales
US mail order shop, with a lot of discounted kits of US manufacture (Revell-Monogram, ERTL, AMT), often stock kits that are out of production.
