The new Tamiya Mazda Savanna RX-7 (SA22) body for the Rear Wheel Drive M-06L has now been out for a little while.
But to our surprise, we have seen very little feedback for this nice new body, especially on the big Tamiya Fan and Club sites, where not a single example of the new old RX-7 could be found.
The team of Tamiyablog likes the first generation RX-7 a lot, so this body was the first choice for my M-06 Pro chassis kit which was waiting to be built for too long now.
Tamiya recommends the classic black Minilite style wheels for the RX-7 which I think don’t suit the car so well. So we chose the Tamiya wheels which were known from the Tamiya Honda S800 kit.
Combined with the black anodized wheel nuts to imitate the fullsize car’s black hubs, they give the car a very authentic look.
The body is painted in a classic light green metallic which was seen very often on the original Mazda RX-7 in the late 1970’s.
It’s good to have another long wheelbase body for the M-06 chassis in addition to the Tamiya classic Volkswagen Beetle.
Thank you very much for your interest and…
Enjoy Rotary Power!
