Limited Edition RX-7 FD3S???

tallgeese had mentioned that he had seen a picture of a limited edition Mazda Rx-7 FD3S body . . .

"I'm pretty sure that the RX-7 was pictured in a few links from one of the 2008 japanese hobby shows that was posted up on the internet, if you search around a little, you may be able to find some pics of it for yourself. I hope this information helps you out, just to remind you. The RX-7 that I saw was an FD version, and it was white, gunmetal and red in color.. It also came in a clear box with a custom sticker on top with possibly a signature on the box"

Can anyone point me to some pics or a link of what he might be talking about. He and I have both been unable to find this.

Thanks in advance.

Just a random recollection but I vaguely recall herman posting something like this in a long thread from a Japanese hobby show?

Thanks for posting the info guys. I'm trying to keep records of all the rare bodies so this is very helpful. Eventually the idea is to put up a site that has records of everything when these other webpages are no longer up.

from this thread - "2007 JMRCA All Japan Super Expert Touring Car Championship" post #24... (it's kinda old tho)
http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...ionship-2.html

I hope that for 150$ that pack included a 2.4 MR15 as well... As far as body, looking at the scheme- it seems very easy to paint yourself.

I think it's an "item" just because it was a show exclusive and limited to 10 units. Since this was a custom paint job, it's not as desireable to me versus say a limited official kyosho release or a number custom paint release from kyosho.
