This product is a faithful reproduction of the Mazda RX-7 (FD3S) Type R Bathurst R, a limited edition car commemorating the victory of the Bathurst 12 Hours Endurance Race.
The RX-7 (FD3S) was introduced in 1991 as the successor to the Savannah RX-7 introduced in 1971.
Development continued as a pure sports car with a twin-turbo rotary engine (13B type engine) mounted on a lightweight body.
In the major minor change made in 1999, the maximum output of the engine reached 280ps, which is the full self-regulation, and a wide range of changes were made, such as strengthening the body rigidity, reviewing the suspension, and adopting a newly designed front bumper.
After winning the Bathurst 12 Hours Endurance Race in Australia for the third consecutive year, the RX-7 was added to the lineup of limited edition cars bearing the Bathurst name. Launched in 2001, the Type R Bathurst R was based on the Type R grade. Three colors are available: the bright "Sunburst Yellow", which is a special color, and the popular colors "Pure White" and "Innocent Blue Mica".
The model was 3D scanned, photographed, and measured by the actual vehicle. We created and developed 3D data in-house based on interview data.
The RX-7 has many three-dimensional curved surfaces and is very difficult to three-dimensionalize, so we paid close attention to the surface composition of the body.
The 16-inch wheels installed on the Type R have also been newly made into parts.
About Make Up Co., Ltd.:
Our make-up was born in a room in "Central Apartment" in Harajuku, Tokyo in 1978.
Its history begins when our representative Hideyuki Uemoto was inspired by the model culture of his area at the annual "Model Engineer Exhibition" held at Wembley Park in the United Kingdom.
Here, we will deliver the history of our company by interweaving Uemoto's own recollections.
About Resin Models:
Although higher in price, resin models offer an extreme amount of detail and precision. The finish is near flawless in presentation, they are limited in production, they offer a ton of photo-etch details and some of the tiniest features are shown. Resin models are especially great when it comes to makes, models and aftermarket styles that we often do not see when it comes to our favorite cars. These are offered in every model car scale and great for the collector minded people that want something unique from every angle.
