At 1/48 scale this is the smallest RX-7 kit I've encountered sofar. This is a cute yet accurate and well detailed little model, level of detail is almost as good as the 1/24 scale Fujimi kits.
The kit can either be built with an optional pull-back spring motor (included in the kit), or with a fully detailed interior.
The kit is molded in either white, red or black (the color is indicated on the box edge, all parts have the same color) and comes with nicely tinted windows and rubber-like tires with a Pirelli P7 thread pattern.
No decals are provided, but a set of japanese license plates can be cut out of the side of the box lid.
Over the years this kit was released in several different series, but as far as I know the contents of the box are always the same, although the Mini Tohge version comes with a set of generic sponsor decals.
