Default Mazda Eunos ( Miata) Build Album

I managed to finally upload and re-size most of the build pics of the Miata. I apologize for the sheer number of photos but I tried to include as many as possible so as to share some more ideas with all. I hope you find something of interest or help you with ideas as you slog through them :D

NOTE: They're roughly in chronological order. On some aspect of the build, I've gone back and re-worked a particular detail. A good example is the driver figure.

The running chassis is a Tamiya M02 built as an RWD with the medium nosebox. The chassis is extremly versatile as it can be configured as FWD, RWD or even 4WD (with two drive units) and the wheelbase is adjustable by using different lenght noseboxes. The Miata was built to comply with TCS Rules for Best of Show and is fully functional.

Mike, did I ever tell you you're my hero? (cue Bette Midler. :lol:)

Seriously, your scratch building skills never cease to amaze.

One thing I'm especially curious about is the fiberglass fender wells. Care to give a detailed tutorial on that? Do it in a separate thread though, the Tips and Tricks section would be perfect! How far could we take that technique? Maybe do full body panels?
