For those of you who have subscribed to the Mazda Cosmo Sport, or are considering it, here are a few links that you might check out:

The first will let you see what parts come with each pack 1-100:

The next one is from DeAg Japan and has some very interesting posts from people who have built this kit. Just click on the thumbnails. The ones with a blue wrench and screwdriver crossed are problems encountered or detail added - very helpful:

I found a blog of a repair shop in Yotsukaido City, Chiba Prefecture that details his work on several Cosmos. Scroll down about half way (translate the page) for an index of the blog entries for his repair work. You'll have to work through the list for the Mazda Cosmo entries. This will be mainly for the super detailers out there. I will include a few links from the list with the better pictures. The pictures are great and high resolution. Click on the pic and then you can click again to maximize it - you know the drill:

And here are a couple of builds from the past from a couple of Japanese gentlemen. You'll have to translate the pages to get to the Mazda build:

Hope these links will help someone building their Cosmo. I only have the first pack so far. It seems to have stalled for now, hopefully shipments will resume soon.

If you have read this far and you are starting this kit, the front grill (silver photo etched piece) should be black, based on all the photos I've perused through. I went with satin black.

Some of the pictures in the above links will show an AC compressor in the engine compartment and a funky box behind the seats. AC was an option and the kit does not have it.

Enjoy,
