Mazda RX-7 Kits, where to find 'm

This site has moved to

This page will remain available for a few more weeks, but it will no longer be updated, click here to go to the latest version.

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.

The page is divided into sections:

Japanese Shops

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.

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 or 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.

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, 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.

European Shops

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 shop is located in the United Kingdom and is specialized in model cars and bikes. It offers a staggering selection of aftermarket sets (upgrade sets, decals, transkits, paints).

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.
