So I recently purchased an MX-5 1/24 model from Tamiya after figuring out the wheelbase is perfect for the 94mm setting on the AWD chassis. So, as usual, this is a build thread on the body. It'll be a simple build but will have a lot of detail work like exhaust soot and certain damage marks as well as the usual body details.

In the photo above it's just resting on the chassis but I'll be making a front mounting point for it and I'm still prototyping on what to do for the side clips. I might actually just use a rear clip off an Xmods Evo like what I did on my Subaru body.

Sub'd. Looks a perfect fit. Looking forward to the build. The mx-5 has always been one of my favorite cars.

Thanks mate. I finally got back around to working on this body since the school year is coming to a close and I finally have some free time again. I got the window and wipers installed and have had the window trim painted for a few months already.

I'll update this with a few new pics soon.
