Hello everyone!
Today I will share with you my opinion about modelcar from topic. But first - quick story. As some of you might know I am fan of Japanese cars and I mainly collect them. In past I had NSX's, S30 (from Kyosho), AE86's, R33, R34 and R35. Recently I was looking for RX-7. Never had it, and I thought it can be good base for modifications. Of course I would get Spirit-R Type A version but it is pretty hard to find them in acceptable (for me) price. So I was looking for tuned version - mostly white one. They was much cheaper than Spirit R's so decided to get one BUT - I started conversation with one guy on Instagram and asked him where from he buy modelcars. He told me about one website and I sterted looking for my "dream" RX-7. Didn't found any "Tuned" versions or cheap Spirit R's but found this baby. Of course still little problem was price. But I talked to owner of it and we made deal that I will never forget. HUUUGE THANK"S TO YOU NICO!!! :danke:

Okay, let's start with little review of it. Exterior pictures:

I am getting in love of this body shape. What is better for me that I get this version are read lights - they are looking like in Spirit R version. "Tuned" version have them like 2 squares - here I have 3 circles. Front badge and rear badges are PE element's. To be honest - I dont like Efini logo...  All of other things are just perfect. Okay, maybe that wing is too big lol. But - I am not sure but it seems that front bumper is piece of body and rear one is separated (I will check it at home). Pop-up headlights are amazing. Lets check engine and engine bay:

Engine is looking very good but I will propably do swap for something more legendary. Hood is holded by wire - thats looking very nice and it was one of reasons why I wanted RX in my small collection. Let's go now to interior and trunk:

As you can see and some of you might know it looks almost same like in Tuned version - sterring wheel - is same, door pannels are same. For sure difference in in front of passenger seat - that aluminium look... Something lol I dont know how to call it. And also seatbelt's are different than in "Tuned" one. What could be cool is white guages like in Spirit R version. When we are talking about Spirit R version - it have Recaro badge on top of seat, and as for me cooler stock steering wheel. Trunk:

It opens pretty nice, but it's not so big lol But what it most important - it is really holded by dampers. I had 3 AE86's and in every of them trunk was closing by itself. Now some other pic's:
