Lightbulb Mini-Z Autoscale Database

Hello everyone,

I've been thinking about creating an open repository where we, as a mini-z community, could create a DataBase w/ information on all Autoscale bodies ever produced. I know there are some sites and lists here and there (mostly PDF not easily editable) on the Internet, not to mention that these lists are hardly up to date. I thought of creating a Spreadsheet on Google Drive Where we could keep all this information available and updatable by anyone. The spreadsheet would have columns like for example:

- Maker: Kyosho
- Part #: MZP16SR
- Model Description: Lancia Stratos 1978 Sanremo №4
- Auto Maker: Lancia
- Category: WRC
- Released Date: 2001
- Chassis Type: MR-01
- Wheelbase: 86mm
- Motor Mount: RM
- Front Off-Set: 0
- Rear Off-Set: 0
- Special/Limited Ed.?: No
- White Body #: MZN52, MZN137
- Ready Set #: ?
- Images Link: Link to a Directory of Images of that Body.

Again, this document would be open and public so anyone could go and add more information to it.

What do you guys think ? any ideas ? Suggestions ? Rotten tomatoes ? :-)

Looking forward to hear from you,

i think this was thought of before but can't remember if it was open source…
another bit of info that might be helpful is offsets for bodies if used with mr015 vs mr02 chassis

pretty cool project, hope it works out

you might as well make a full offset columns for all chassis at that point. once you get past the original release wheelbase for the released chassis, you either do it all or nothing in my opinion. or simply restate the general rule that mr-015 = +/- Xmm, etc.

I'd started a database of my own Autoscale collection in Bento on my iPad but I wasn't happy with the categories I'd set.
Yours is substantially more complete.
MR01AM, MR015AM (X2), MR02iAM, MR02AM, MR02ASF, MR02LMASF, MR03ASF (x3), MA010ASF, MB-010ASF, MV-01ASF, MM-01ASF

I have begun a work like that, plus the wheels set.
yet, the biggest problem is the release date, for the oldest models (mzc, mzg, mzx). atomicmods has a list close to what you want but it lacks several bodies. on my blog there are a lot of links for BODY LIST, but perhaps you have them already covered...
