Fujimi Mazda Savannah RX-7 Racing Body set
SOLD: AU$250 on 13th May 2017
Scale: 1/12
Year of release: 1980

When it comes to extremely rare R/C spare parts, it doesn’t get rarer than this one… This is a 1/12 scale polycarbonate/lexan body set for the Fujimi Mazda Savannah RX-7 Racing R/C kit car. The body set is absolutely complete, new in the box, with all parts and decals. It is a highly authentic polycarbonate body of the classic Mazda RX-7

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, several Japanese plastic model kit makers followed Tamiya’s lead, by entering the electric R/C car market. One of these was Fujimi, who manufactured a few high quality 1/12 scale R/C models of on-road racing cars, one of which was the Mazda Savannah RX-7 Racing. The R/C kit of this model is extremely rare today, as are used examples of the car. Though I have seen a handful of them around over the years. What I have never seen before though, is this spare body set for the kit, which came in it’s own little full-colour box, much like the Tamiya spare body sets of that time.

Needless to say, this is a very rare, genuine Fujimi piece from the late 1970s or early 1980s. Once sold, you likely won’t see another.
