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 this web page to the 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 .
For websites that offer a programmable search function I added a button or link to launch inventory searches for RX-7 or Mazda.
Where better to look for the latest Japanese kits than in Japan ?
Unfortunately Rainbow 10, my favorite Japanese model shop, has 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.
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 or Mazda kits.

US mail order shop, their model kits department has moved to website Discount Plastic Models.
Sells a lot of discounted kits of US manufacture (Revell-Monogram, ERTL, AMT), often stock kits that are out of production.
The following shops are not just for buying model kits of European manufacture, but if you live in Europe, Far-Eastern products might also be bought cheaper overall (no additional import duties) at these shops.
I have good experiences with the following shops:
This Spanish based webshop offers a vast selection of model car kits and related products, with an emphasis on race cars and (hard to find) upgrade parts. Shipping is fast at reasonable costs and goods are very well packaged.
This is a webshop but a Toyman sales booth can often be found at car related events in Holland and Belgium such as NAMAC Beurs and Euro Scale Modelling. Specializes in US model car kits, often stocks kits that are hard to find elsewhere in Europe.
